FROM THE BACK OF THE BOX:

Based on real-life events, a gifted college athlete works to recover from a stroke.

FROM THE BACK OF MY BRAIN:

“1000 to 1″is an inspiring story about how a college basketball player worked his way back from a stroke. Beau Bridges and a few character actors show up to coach the young man back into student athletic prosperity. The whole time, I was just scratching my head and wondering why. It wasn’t terrible, but it stood out at points like a sore thumb. Then, I placed the mom as the oldest sister from “Uncle Buck”. I laughed at how low some actors have fallen and then I just mentally shut down.

There’s a degree of corniness in the film that naturally brings out the worst in me. Honestly, it’s the kind of fare that will keep your grandparents entertained and wondering why they can’t have more wholesome shows out there to watch. At worst, it’s offensive to stroke victims. At best, it’s forgettable entertainment meant to fulfill some imaginary quota written on the side of a corporate wall. They do that…right?

I don’t even know what to believe anymore. Everything I look at in this film is generic and bland. Give me an offensive piece of shit any day of the week and I can mine gold out of nothing. The worse thing you can do is try to make me feel good about someone overcoming adversity. But, here we are again. Fucking Dove Foundation. The DVD comes with a featurette, clip and PSA. The A/V Quality is pretty bland, as the Dolby tracks gives little to no back channel support. That being said, the transfer is also pretty flat. I wasn’t expecting much, but I expected a certain degree of pop. In the end, I’d recommend a rental.
