White Men Can't Jump takes a classic film and perfectly updates it for 2023. Fans of the original will love what was done here. For those who haven't seen it, don't worry, you don't need to. Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls deliver a lot of great comedic moments. #WhiteMenCantJump pic.twitter.com/YVvtyZQHg0

Wow, @CALMATIC’s #WhiteMenCantJump is one of the better & stronger non-comic book movie, non-horror films we are getting this year.@SinquaWalls and @jackharlow both live up to the bromantic chemistry that @WoodyHarrelson and @wesleysnipes had, yet they make it their own.

Nothing beats the original #WhiteMenCantJump, but this remake is actually surprising. It demonstrates that it's possible to take a classic and create something fresh while still maintaining its own unique identity. It’s not a slam dunk but still worth 2 points. pic.twitter.com/6pdRbKDu6k

The #WhiteMenCantJump remake doesn't have the same heart as the 1992 original but does have some good performances and enjoyable moments from @SinquaWalls and @jackharlow.

#WhiteMenCantJump was one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls had awesome chemistry to make this remake worth the watch. It was funny, wholesome and heartfelt. Harlow has such a natural charisma and Walls shows his range. Loved this! pic.twitter.com/HjxKPuOzOr
