Billy Hoyle (Woodrow Harrelson) and Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) are the main characters of the movie “White Men Can’t Jump”. The movie was released on the 27th of March 1992 in The United States of America. Billy and Sidney were streetball hustlers in the film. Billy and Sidney were former college basketball champions. Billy always has the inability to slam dunk and Sidney always teases him for that. They started to earn their livelihood by playing and gambling on streetball games. Billy and his girlfriend Gloria were on the run from a mobster to whom Billy owes a debt. Gloria wanted to be a contestant on a famous television show in the USA and wanted to win a lot of money from it. On the other hand, Billy always plays gambling streetball matches with his partner Sidney to earn his livelihood. But Gloria did not like what Billy was doing to earn money and she wanted him to start a real job.
When Billy started to lose money again in gambling Gloria left Billy for not getting serious in his life. To patch up with Gloria again Billy arranged a contestant ticket for her favorite show with the help of Sidney’s contacts. From that show, Gloria earned $14,000 and their life was back on track. After some time Sidney’s place was robbed and he asked Billy to help him and his family. Billy decided to help Sidney by playing a big gambling match with the famous streetball payers in the town. Gloria warned Billy if he will play gambling again with the money she won she will leave him for good no matter what the results of the match. Billy still decided to play and won a close match in which he showed he can do dunk. After returning he found out that Gloria already left him.
