The film was the big screen debut of Kaplan, although he had made earlier appearances on television sitcoms and movies, and was one of the first film appearances of Laurence Fishburne.

David Greene (Gabe Kaplan) is a basketball fanatic living in Brooklyn, NY, who alternates his time between playing in neighborhood pick-up games and managing a delicatessen. He dreams of making his living coaching basketball (David was once a junior high school basketball coach) and has sent numerous letters to colleges in the hope of fulfilling that dream—much to the chagrin of his long-suffering wife Jan (Randee Heller), who wants only to buy a home and start a family. This is a challenge for him.
