Space Jam is nothing if not a product made by men who gauge a film's success by how many soft toys it spawns.

This isn't Looney Tunes, it's Sloppy Tunes.

The movie could have been a gleaming showcase for cartoon wit. Instead it's an 87-minute commercial peddling sainthood for Michael Jordan.

Its timing is blessed. Its audience is guaranteed. Its technique is spectacular. And it has two co-superstars almost universally admired and liked.

Space Jam is, at times, a hoot, especially when it has fun with Michael's less-than-stellar baseball career.
November 15, 2016
Space Jam is a seamless marvel as Jordan slams and jams in the Looney Tune world. Animation co-directors Bruce Smith and Tony Cervone have orchestrated a dazzingly visual treat.

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

Space Jam [whisks] Michael Jordan to Toontown for a make-or-break game with Bugs Bunny and the other Looney Tunes. Exuberantly mixing live action and animation, it's a high-energy dream teaming.
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
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.

Sufferin' succotash!
June 24, 2006
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.
June 18, 2002
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.
February 14, 2001
Space Jam is no Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but it works well enough.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
Space Jam is, perhaps, best viewed as a 'package,' something put together by agents and dealmakers rather than filmmakers.
January 1, 2000
First-rate popcorn movie: undemanding, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.
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.
