Space Jam Reviews

August 23, 2017
Space Jam is, at times, a hoot, especially when it has fun with Michael's less-than-stellar baseball career.

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.

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
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.
May 20, 2003
This film was made very quickly by animation standards, and the haste shows.

It's the first time either Jordan or Bugs has had a starring role on the big screen. It's gimmicky Saturday-morning cartoon wackiness in your face -- funny, but brain-deadening.

Space Jam is no Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but it works well enough.

This movie, which could just as easily be called The Michael Jordan Worship Show, plays like a 90-minute homage to His Airness, selling his every virtue.

It's an inspired way to use, and kid, Jordan's image while at the same time updating Bugs Bunny & Company to doing battle in the multizillion-dollar animation sweepstakes.

In basketball terms, Space Jam is more akin to the 'garbage time' that concludes lopsided games, when reckless playing is no substitute for the real thing.
January 1, 2000
The movie's undermining flaw is its lack of screen magic (and first-rate cartoon gags) that Who Framed Roger Rabbit had throughout.

The climactic game in Space Jam goes slack repeatedly.
January 1, 2000
Jordan has immense likability, and his extraordinary talents need no further adulation.
