It’s got everything. The Remember the Titans-like White vs. Black thing. A Jay-Z theme song. A comedically nostalgic quote that turns out to be true like, “Maybe tomorrow, we’ll all wear 42”. An unknown actor looking to make his mark by playing one of the most famous and admirable black athletes of the 21st century. Hell, try one of the most famous and admirable black people of the 21st century. And, an almost unrecognizable Harrison Ford.

And, sh*t… it’s set in Brooklyn. What’s cooler than Brooklyn right now?
