Movies Of The ’90s: ‘White Men Can’t Jump’

Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson swear at each other while Rosie Perez steals the show. Listen to our recap of another ’90s classic.

We didn’t ask him, but I think we can say it with certainty: Peter Sagal definitely cannot dunk.

Welcome back to Nerdette Recaps with Peter Sagal! It’s the podcast where we rewatch movies of the ‘90s and dissect them like the intense nerds we are.

Episode 3 features our very first sportsball movie: 1992’s White Men Can’t Jump, starring Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson and Rosie Perez. It’s director Ron Shelton’s followup to Bull Durham and the script might just contain more obscenities than non-obscenities.

Listen to this conversation with Peter, Tricia and Greta, then join us next week for our discussion of Dazed and Confused.

And don’t forget, we want to hear from you! Join the party and send us a voice recording about any of the movies we’re featuring. Just record yourself on your smartphone and send the audio file to nerdetterecaps@gmail.com. Do it by Thursday!
