Shat The Movies Fantasy Basketball champion Don Sauce chose a movie he’d never seen before as his prize: “”White Men Can’t Jump.”” And what he got was perhaps Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes at their best.

Like other Ron Shelton sports movies, this 1992 love letter to Los Angeles blends sex, psychology, and an underlying malaise to take the audience beyond the game and into life itself.

In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses the history of white basketballers, how to get on “”Jeopardy!””, Rosie Perez’ sex appeal, the lush dialogue of ’90s movies, why Comic-Con has gone downhill and how to ask for sex in Portuguese.

Plot Summary: “White Men Can’t Jump” Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) is a white basketball hustler who banks on black players underestimating his skills on the court. When he pulls one over on Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes), his victim sees a lucrative opportunity, and they become partners in the con game, plying their trade across the courts of Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Billy has to keep one step ahead of mobsters, to whom he owes money, while staying on the good side of his “Jeopardy!”-obsessed, motormouth wife (Rosie Perez).
