YMMV: Love and Basketball
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Double or nothing."
- Cult Classic: Sort of. Despite being 11 years old, this movie is still incredibly popular with young black people from the ages of about 13 to 25, probably due to the constant reruns on BET. To the point where it's a trending topic on Twitter. Young basketball players sometimes talk about having or wanting a Love and Basketball relationship.
- Heartwarming In Hindsight: Monica got engaged for real in July 2013 to Kevin Durant.
- Hollywood Homely: Monica has to undergo a makeover to look feminine enough so she can get a date for the high school prom. She's played by Saana Lathan, who is—for lack of a more suitable word—gorgeous.
