He made perhaps the most dramatic shot in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament. He's the only player to start in four consecutive Final Fours, and was instrumental in Duke winning two national championships. He had looks, smarts and game. So why has Christian Laettner been disliked so intensely by so many for so long? Maybe it was the time he stomped on the chest of a downed player, or the battles he had with his teammates, or a perceived sense of entitlement. But sometimes, perception isn't reality. "I Hate Christian Laettner" will go beyond the polarizing persona to reveal the complete story behind this lightning rod of college basketball. Featuring extensive access to Laettner, previously unseen footage and perspectives from all sides, this film will be a "gloves-off" examination of the man who has been seen by many as the "Blue Devil Himself." - Written by Anonymous

I Hate Christian Laettner online movie review - Very funny and entertaining portrait of a jerk who really wasn't that bad of a guy

There's no denying that Christian Laettner was an exceptional college basketball player, but his cocky and fiercely competitive persona, handsome looks, remarkable winning streak (he played in four final games and helped his college win two national championships throughout the course of four years!

), and the simple fact that he attended the notoriously preppy'n'privileged Duke University made him a much despised figure in his prime. Well, it turns out that there's a bit more to Laettner than meets the eye: Contrary to popular belief, Laettner was actually from a scrappy lower middle-class blue collar background instead of born into wealth, his innate toughness and bully-like nature stemmed from the rough tutelage he received from his extremely demanding older brother Chris, his reason for occasionally coming down hard on his teammates was done to get them to kick up their game when it counted most (teammate Bobby Hurley in particular really got the brunt of this), and, even though his whiteness defied rather defined 1990's black hip hop culture, Laettner was close friends with black teammate Grant Hill, which later served as prime fodder for a pernicious gay rumor about Laettner. By presenting all sides of the matter through illuminating interviews with family, friends, coaches, fellow teammates, rival teammates, and Laettner himself, director Rory Karpf states a credible case that all the hatred folks still feel for Laettner isn't 100% warranted. Smoothly narrated by Rob Lowe, this documentary overall makes for a highly rewarding viewing experience regardless of whether you like or dislike Christian Laettner.
