Movie Reviews

Slam Dunk
Alan Attebery | Arlington, TX USA | 12/14/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Space Jam teams up His Airness, Michael Jordan, with His Hareness, Bugs Bunny, for a fun, and funny, family film.Michael Jordan has retired from basketball, and currently playing baseball, when Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes pals ask for his help in playing a b-ball game against diminuative aliens from Moron Mountain. These aliens have stolen the talent of 5 NBA players, including Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing, and are now larger than life. Since this is Looney Tunes Land, this game is NOT your average basketball game. If it was, it wouldn't be any fun.Though not an actor of any kind in anyone's book, Michael Jordan does a very good job of interacting with his cartoon co-stars. Most of the jokes are well done and the basketball game itself is a lot of fun. In addition, it is quite funny to watch the 5 NBA players that had their "games" stolen trying to cope with their newfound ordinaryness.This movie is not groundbreaking by any means and most all of the original Looney Tunes cartoons are better. But this movie never tries to be more than it is: a good time. And at that, it succeeds very well."
A Review of the Two-Disc DVD

"The new "Space Jam" 2-Disc DVD is a fun addition to any Looney Tunes or family DVD collection. Disc One features the film, which can be enjoyed with commentary from the director, as well as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Most DVD commentaries are a bore to sit through--and this one does have its over technical moments (especially if you have young children who "believe in" Bugs or Daffy), but the comments from the characters are very witty--including a jab that Bugs throws at Michael Jordan early in the presentation (concerning his brief baseball career).Rounding out the first disc is the theatrical trailer of the film (this is almost a MUST with me for any DVD).The Second Disc is a nice bonus and could have easily been packaged as a stand-alone item. It features a "Making of Space Jam" and several Looney Tunes shorts (from the 1980's and 1990's), as well as the 1988 television special, "Bugs vs. Daffy: Battle of the Music Video Stars". Speaking of music videos, the second disc also features "Fly Like an Eagle" and "Monstars Anthem".This is a great gift for any Looney Tunes fan. Folks who liked it as children in 1996 (when the film was released) should still like it as teens. Children who have never seen it will also enjoy it. In short, it's a keeper."
Relax - there's intelligence behind this.

"Air Jordan and the Heckling Hare? Couldn't work.....could it? Leave your cynicism about merchaindaising at the door, because Space Jam accomplishes something that The Flintstones Meets The Jetsons, or other such fare, could never achieve. First, for such a goofy concept, the film is remarkably grounded in reality, and some of the best scenes are about victimized NBA players dealing with no talents; add to that the implications of Jordan's experience with the Looneys affecting his chosen sport. Performances are dead-on, and Michael is as properly laconic an actor as he is a player. Finally, the key to this is the Looney Tunes themselves - it's their first foray into true feature films. Thankfully, each character (especially Bugs and Daffy, and those two ought to be) are complete in character as they were in the 40s and 50s. Seeing Bugs get equal billing as the live-action star is beyond promising; it's a reminder that Bugs Bunny has possibly meant more to Americans than a great deal of actors, writers, and directors combined. People will pass on, but the "mild-mannered forest creature", as he himself would put it, will live on into eternity."
The most brilliant, dazzling toony featuring our great M.J.!

"Hmmm...let's see... a very clever, crafty storyline,...eye-stunning animation,...very witty visual gags...really cool characters, including our classic old friends from the Looney Tunes and the the world's best basketball player ever to be born and carefully nurtured...with a few really bold gross-out shots thrown in ... and all mixed together...YOU GET SPACE JAM! You will never see your most favorite WB characters the same way again - they are animated far more graphically than they had ever been in their old cartoons of the Golden Age. Included are the new characters like the cigar-chewing Mafia boss from Mars with his very tall and muscular "Monstars" basketball players and Lola Bunny who hates to be called "doll" and then acts like a doll, much to Bugs Bunny's delighted, heart-thumping infatuation. Oh, and don't forget a very round nerdball that looks just like he finally escaped being eaten alive by a fan-faced dinosaur at Jurassic Park, too! Oh, you will truly thrill at such a zany, bumpy-bouncing space adventure amusement park ride with all your god-witnessed heroes, both live action and animated alike!"
