This week on TMR, we solve the problem of race relations in America once and for all with 1992’s “White Men Can’t Jump.” Ryan and Steve do their best Rosie Perez impressions, Steve gets a semi early ’90s sex scenes, Ryan recalls the numerous inappropriate movies his father took him to see, and some truly mediocre trash talk gets laid down.

Billy and Sydney think they’re the best basketball hustlers in town, so when they join forces, nothing can stop them, except each other. To add to their problems, Billy owes money and is being chased by a pair of gangster types. Written by Rob Hartill via IMDB
