Eddie - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Manhattan limousine driver Eddie Franklin (Whoopi Goldberg) lives and breathes basketball. Her world revolves around Madison Square Garden, home of her beloved, albeit in last place, New York Knicks. After a one game stint as the team's honorary coach, Eddie is offered the real head coaching post as part of a publicity stunt engineered by the new Knicks owner, Wild Bill Burgess (Frank Langella). Between laughs, Eddie teaches the New York Knicks and their owner a lesson they will never forget, and she reminds us all that the game is, ultimately, just that -- a game. It's for the fans, and it's supposed to be fun.
