When Gloria (Rosie Perez) and Billy (Woody Harrelson) are about to leave to see Sidney (Wesley Snipes) about the money he swindled from them, Gloria goes to the closet to put on a jacket. In the closet on the top shelf is the board game for Jeopardy!, based on the same game show on which Gloria is continuously attempting to appear. See more »
While playing "Double Jeopardy," Gloria interrupts Alex to answer a question about Popes. The rules of the game do not permit a contestant to respond until the answer is read aloud in its entirety. See more »
Ron Shelton does it again. He does a great job of capturing the culture of basketball hustlers and how they go from court to court hustling games and making money. He gets everything right even down to the trash talk on the court. Woody Harrelson is perfect as the n'er do well Billy and Wesley Snipes is perfect as the fast talking Sidney. This also to me is the breakout performance of Rosie Perez. Perez is perfect as Billy's kookie girlfriend Gloria. This film is definitely a classic.
