Adam Sandler rarely plays a role straight, but when he does, you know it’s good. In Hustle, Sandler is Stanley Sugarman, a basketball scout stuck in the long game, waiting for his chance to finally coach an NBA team. On a recruitment trip to Spain, Stan discovers a talented but unknown player named Bo Cruz. They fly to the US, where Stan and Bo fight against all odds and hustle for a spot in the NBA draft.
Inspiring without being too cheesy and informative without being bogged down by too many details, Hustle is a slum dunk of a film; a gritty crowd-pleaser that’s sure to draw anyone in.
