March is a month forcefully controlled by college basketball. Fuck it! Im not complaining. The opportunity to win a few extra dollars from your roommates and play sports guru is worth every minute of it. On the other side of things movies never tend to capture the essence and sheer chaos that ‘March Madness’ entails. Brackets aside, the #WatchDeez March Madness Movie of the Month is the 6th Man.
This 1997 comedy comes with laughs and scenes of sadness as the star player passes in Hank Gathers fashion. From this point, Kenny Tyler (Marlon Waynans) must find a way to balance his unrelenting connection with his brother with the real world issues of being the point guard of the Washington Huskies. Things turn up as the spirit of Antwon (Kadeem Hardison) returns to finish the tournament run with the team. Of course, a beautiful woman is involved as a local sports reporter begins to catch scent of the supernatural. Kenny is forced to make a decision between his team, his brother, his girl, and the love for the game.
