His imperfect memory has made him forget his girlfriend's birthday, and consequently, she dumps him. To vent his frustration, he goes out to shoot some hoops. Well, he's a terrible ball player with no skills. Angelina (Romi Dias), a gorgeous and sympathetic "guardian angel" appears to give him a chance to improve his game and revamp his self-image as a loser. Angelina's bubblegum is the key, so Marvin takes it from her and chews. Enter Number One (Corey Reynolds), Cristal (Michael Bentt), and The Lord (Daryus Jackson): they pick him as a fourth in their two-on-two, simply because he's, well, there. The ensuing game is aggressive and furious, with Marvin maximizing the spell of Angelina, playing like a pro, and winning the game against Cristal and the Lord. Yet, the effect is short-lived - he forgets Angelina's name when Number One asks, so she disappears and takes Marvin's basketball talent with her. See less
