Drama: A high school senior transfers to a new school where he hopes to show up the best basketball player at a rival school and thus earn a college scholarship to continue his path toward the NBA.

Alfred 'Boogie" Chin (TAYLOR TAKAHASHI) is a high school senior and notable basketball talent whose bickering parents, Vivian (PAMELYN CHEE) and Lawrence (PERRY YUNG), have transferred him from his old Flushing, Queens school to City Prep to play for Coach Hawkins (DOMENICK LOMBARDOZZI). Despite that team not being good, his presence on that means he'll end up facing the best player around, Monk (POP SMOKE), and if Boogie can get the better of him on the court, then surely college athletic scholarships will be headed his way.

In class, Boogie is now good friends with teammate Richie (JORGE LENDEBORG JR.), and they're respectively set their sights on classmates Eleanor (TAYLOUR PAIGE) and Alissa (ALEXA MAREKA) who initially view Richie as rude and forward, if cute. At the same time, and not wanting his talents -- and potential future in the NBA -- to go to waste, Vivian has hired Melvin (MIKE MOH) as Boogie's manager, although his plans clash with how Lawrence pictures things playing out. As Boogie ends up in a relationship with Eleanor and must contend with his parents fighting over his future and how they're going to get there, he waits for his chance to take on Monk on the court.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
