This movie rips of childhood hits such as "Like Mike" and "Space Jam" and makes it as predictable and ordinary as possible. It is harmless for children but the movie failed to engage me. I pretty much knew how it was going to play out from the start and found my self checking off the cliches.

Similar to many NBA basketball star movies, Thunderstruck is cliche and uncreative on any point, but is still enjoyable for most age groups.

It was funny, cute, and interesting,
This is a GREAT resource of a Kids&Family Movie! 4 stars Rated PG!

This kind of film has been seen before, and I guess it is en easy way to get a sports star in the movie business and a young talent in to act together with him or her.
I think the movie is relying much on the fact that there is some great athlete in it, but on the other hand it does have some moments that are new and does work as a nice family movie.
It does bring that much new to the genre, but works and is nice and easy watching.

Slightly different than Ray Allen in 'He Got Game'...just slightly

Talent-swapping basketball tale is bland but OK for kids. i didnt care for it

I love a good sports film, and while this might not have quite earned that particular adjective, it was good enough. Jim Belushi is always great, and it was hilarious watching Kevin Durant stumble all over himself and miss 2 foot shots, but the real star of this one was Brandon T. Jackson. Taylor Gray, well, he could use a few...hundred...acting lessons.

Sometimes when people watch movies that are indefensibly bad, yet they like them anyway, they refer to them as "cute." Because I could never say anything bad about my one and only, Kevin Durant, I have to refer to this movie as "cute," because it's basically a pile of garbage that makes 90 minutes feel like an eternity. Luckily, I was willing and able to revel in the plot's simplistic awfulness, Kevin Durant's acting skills (notice how I didn't put skills in quotation marks!), and the Mama Durant cameo. But only to an extent.

Excellent family movie, especially to watch with kids who like basketball.

The good old talent swap plot, ending's pretty good though with a heartwarming message on hustle, teamwork and a bit of luck.

pretty lousy movie that throws all your sports movie cliches in a blender and is destined to go straight to dvd in places where kevin durant is not treated as a god from the very beginning. however it's pretty harmless and occasionally reaches a level of pretty well-written, genuine hilarity that movies like space jam and like mike never managed to reach. lol

So bad it is laughable on multiple occasions. Talent swap movies are never really destined for good things but this movie was absolutely TERRIBLE. I hurt my brain to watch.

What this supposed to be Space Jam 2? lol

aside from the unoriginal plot and bad acting, still good to see KD in a movie

If you're a KD fan, it MIGHT be worth watching....maybe. Probably not.

Good family movie. Freaky Friday on a basketball court. Entertaining but predictable.
