Taking a look at the success of White Men Can't Jump back in 1992

There have been a few sports films that have been positively received by the masses. One of those films was White Men Can't Jump, back in 1992, which took over the theaters and was loved by the people who saw it.

A trio of actors, namely Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson and Rosie Perez, were able to achieve fame quickly due to the film's success. In the opening weekend, the film was able to garner $14,711,124 in almost 2,000 theaters. The film was a massive hit that earned a total of $76,253,806 in the US and $90,753,806 worldwide. White Men Can't Jump was in the top 20 list of the highest-grossing films of the year as well.

Critically, the film was well-received. Famed American review-aggregation website, Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 77% score on their Tomatometer. The audience's reaction was quite similar, as it gained a positive review of 68%. IMDb gave it a respectable rating of 6.8/10 when it was released.

A year ago, the film celebrated its 30th anniversary and had a special from Hulu to honor the cult classic. In the special, both Snipes and Harrelson shared their experiences being in the film.

"In the black actors community, word is going around that all the actors were being called in to play. I haven't been playing ball. I had good handle, had a good mouth, good talk. But everything I threw up was a brick," Snipes recalled.
"We had a side bet, which kept growing. I was out there and the sound girl said, 'You know, you should stretch.' So I started stretching out my hamstring and next thing you know, I go up and stuff it," Harrelson said.
