If you’ve been anxiously anticipating the day when Dennis Rodman would star in a cheaply-made, feature-length movie about playing basketball with a bunch of midgets…today is your lucky day!
His former teammate Michael Jordan had Space Jam and now D-Rod is attempting to lead his own group of misfits to basketball glory as he tries his hand at acting in “The Minis.”
According to IMDB, the movie came out in 2009 and has only one review:
An inspiring tale, full of great music and some funny moments. The messages here: believe in yourself, follow your dreams, and never give up. Four dwarf men want to raise money for the son of one of the men to go to college, so they form a basketball team and get Dennis Rodman to join them. Rodman’s agent (the funny Richard Portnow) encourages them, as it will improve his image and make them money. (Though of course he’s not above exploiting the dwarfs for an embarrassing ad endorsement!)
There’s a cow-obsessed gal from Paris (…Texas); the dwarf waitress who befriends the smallest of them, Chevy ; his Worm-ness himself, and Chevy, (Gabriel Pimental)who thinks a risky limb-lengthening operation would help him. Can this ragtag team of little guys win?
Fast paced action and catchy music enlivens the story, which is suitable for all ages.
Sounds a lot better than it actually appears to be; granted, I only made it through a little over four minutes before I gave up. It looks awful. If you make it all the way through, good for you…let me know how it is.
