The pick-up basketball partners in this scene are the white Jeremy, played by rapper Jack Harlow and the black Kamal, played by actor Sinqua Walls. Progressive flashbacks show Kamal’s failure as a promising high-school athlete. Jeremy has two torn-up knees, a prescription drug addiction, and a growing reputation as a con man. Both have the typical strong women in their lives, but they consistently let these women down.

Jeremy and Kamal exhibit the characteristics of a solid and genuine friendship, although it isn’t always visible. Both had difficult financial conditions when they met and had trouble maintaining stable romantic relationships. They became a strong team that is worth more together than the two of them individually because, above all else, they both loved basketball. They both rely on one another on the court to accomplish their shared objectives. Beyond their compatibility as colleagues, they take further steps to support and strengthen one another.


The basketball-playing dynamic couple in The 2023 White Men Can’t Jump has a penchant for making fun of one other while getting on each other’s nerves. This movie regrettably resembles a weekend gym goer who accepts LeBron James’ challenge to a game of horses: Although it may be comparable to brilliance, it is lacking in all areas that count.

It isn’t effortless to tell whether the new White Men Can’t Jump is genuinely being appreciated. The remake isn’t designed to replicate what the original did; instead, scenes are reinterpreted, and references are created. You may analyse the conversations from the original movie like a skilled athlete analyses an opponent’s game since every conversation is meaningful. All of that is traded in for Jack Harlow’s pitiful babbling in the new movie about how he can’t tell some jokes because he’s a white guy, and the director expects the audience to laugh at this self-awareness as if they haven’t heard it before.

Rating: 3/5

It leaving Jeremy and Kamal with more money, fame, and professional success than they have ever had. Each time characters interact, they are explicit about their motivations and flaws. Every joke is told to the audience rather than the characters. As a result, the movie offers spectators very little food for thought. These factors contributed to the film’s three-out-of-five rating.

Calmatic is the film’s director. Paul Hall and Kenya Barris were the producers. Starring in it are Lance Reddick, Jack Harlow, and Sinqua Walls. On May 19, it made its direct-to-streaming debut on Hulu.
