Movie Info

Every legend has a beginning. Come Fly With Me is the story of Michael Jordan's. Though now his name is linked to greatness, in his youth Jordan struggled like so many athletes, even getting cut from his high school team. The 50-minute tape explores Jordan's roots in North Carolina and subsequent drafting into the NBA. The story is told through interviews with those that knew Jordan best -- his coaches and friends. Come Fly With Me was made before Jordan's run of championship wins with the Chicago Bulls. Still, the graceful player's destiny is apparent in the early game footage. Despite Jordan's sterling reputation, the shining moments of this video are the action segments. From slam-dunk contests to college clips, Come Fly With Me recalls a younger Jordan, hungry and eager to please, and provides a captivating addition to the sports fan's collection. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi

I have a few Michael Jordan videos and "Come Fly With Me" is definitely my favorite. Just about the whole video is full of awesome highlights. "Come Fly With Me" starts out by telling of how Jordan grew up playing basketball and baseball, then it gets to the good stuff. It shows footage from some of his college games all the way to the 1988 All-Star Game and Slam Dunk Contest. It tells about his injury at the beginning of the 1986 season and how he rebounded from it and became an even better player. You'll also hear a lot of insight from Michael's parents and even see some highlights of him playing golf in the offseason. If you're a Michael Jordan fan and you like seeing a lot of highlights that only Jordan himself could make, then you need to get "Come Fly With Me." It probably has more dunking and other gravity-defying highlights on it than any other Michael Jordan video out there. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. I have Michael Jordan: The Ultimate Collection and this is one of 3 videos that came with it and it is my favorite of the 3.
