Fast Break
When deli-worker David Greene (Gabriel Kaplan) manages to land himself a job as a basketball coach at a Nevada college, he abandons his New York City home to head out West. In order to give the floundering team a competitive edge, Greene brings some inner-city kids with him and sets off on an entertaining quest to bring the team together in order to defeat their arch rival.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As do some of our most popular standup comedians, Mr. Kaplan sort of floats over his material, always in charge of it, but never deeply involved. This is not a rebuke."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A hugely likable basketball comedy. Gabe Kaplan is so appealing here that you wonder why he didn't become a bigger star."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"We've seen this formula so many times before that there can be no surprises, except for some small suspense about when the foreordained events will take place."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Totally implausible (though surely not meant to be taken seriously), highly predictable, and not particularly funny."
