With the NBA Playoffs still going we are doubling up on another great 90s basketball flick, "Eddie".  

In "Eddie," played by Whoopi Goldberg, we meet a passionate basketball enthusiast who wins a contest to be the honorary coach for the struggling Knicks. What begins as a publicity stunt turns into a rollercoaster ride as Eddie's unorthodox coaching style starts to shake things up for the team and its egotistical owner, played by Frank Langella.

As Eddie brings her streetwise flair and genuine love for the game to the court, she faces skepticism from the players and resistance from the management. However, her infectious energy and unconventional methods begin to win over both the team and the fans.

Throughout the film, we witness hilarious moments, heartfelt interactions, and a message about the power of believing in oneself and the importance of teamwork. With memorable performances from Goldberg and a supporting cast including Dennis Farina, John Salley, and Mark Jackson, "Eddie" delivers laughs, heart, and plenty of basketball action.

Join us as we discuss the highlights, the memorable quotes, and the lasting impact of this beloved sports comedy. Whether you're a basketball fan or just looking for a feel-good film, "Eddie" is sure to entertain and inspire.
