Space Jam is, at times, a hoot, especially when it has fun with Michael's less-than-stellar baseball career.

December 4, 2016
A mindless, feature-length insult to the dignity and perfection of the Looney Tunes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

Jordan's superstar persona and serious demeanor are well-suited for his role, essentially that of a straight man. His unruffled confidence and restless energy make him the perfect star and the perfect foil for his new 2-D teammates.

It's about time Warner Bros. revived Bugs. He was the most irreverent, intelligent, sophisticated and appealing cartoon character ever to defy gravity.

I'm certainly not a fan of Space Jam, but it's hard to deny its rich tapestry of questionable ideas.

A silly, forgettable comedy...

If you weren't a kid when you first saw Space Jam, you're a lot less likely to find it palatable. [Blu-ray]

Live-action/animation mix is good fun for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 24, 2008
Simpler and cruder than Who Framed Roger Rabbit in terms of story and technique, this is still a great deal of fun, confirming that Jordan is every bit as mythological a creature as Daffy Duck or Yosemite Sam.
March 24, 2008
Attempts to inject some hipness into the classic cartoon characters, not to mention some potty-mouthed dialogue, will enrage purists, but otherwise this pretty much scores a slam dunk with its under-five target audience.
March 24, 2008
A cynical attempt to cash in on the popularity of Warner Bros. cartoon characters and basketball player Michael Jordan, inspired by a Nike commercial.

March 24, 2008
Cute, rambunctious, generally amusing rather than outright funny, this clever mix of live action, highlighted by the unequaled skills of basketball superstar Michael Jordan, and animated Looney Tunes antics will be a must-see for kids.

Visually, it's a mess: the attempts to blend 2- and 3-D animation with live-action and computer-generated images produce scenes that are fuzzier than the storyline.
April 9, 2005
What I miss most of all is the absence of the late, great Mel Blanc.

Space Jam isn't exactly a slam dunk. It's more of a graceful tip-in by Michael Jordan, with a snazzy assist by Bugs Bunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 7, 2004
Succeeds in reintroducing the Looney Tunes name, but fails to capture the imagination and sharpness that defined them originally.

Space Jam is harmless kiddie fare, but it may not be every adult's idea of a good time.

This film was made very quickly by animation standards, and the haste shows.

It's a good effort, but not up to the level of the best Disney cartoon feature.
