Instead, give the people more of what they want -- lots of shots of O'Neal and company slamming, jamming, and takin' it to the hole. Blue Chips's best moments all occur on the hardwood, and many of them involve O'Neal. You can't teach charisma, and Shaq has seven feet and 300-plus pounds of it. Whether he's soaring over an opponent on his way to a ferocious dunk, exuberantly hurling his massive frame into a spontaneous mid-court celebration, or merely flashing his million-candle power smile, this 21-year-old demands your attention. Small wonder that he's cleaning up with endorsement contracts -- he's Heir Jordan.
The filmmakers should have gone to him more often.
