I saw Bow Wow's movie Like Mike on it's debut day,July 3rd.The movie defintely gets two thumbs up for me...too bad I wasn't born with an extra thumb because then it would get 3! The movie isn't all about basketball....Bow Wow also has his mind set on finding a family to adopt him in the movie so it's not all about ball!This movie is for kids and grown-ups(they thre Morris Chestnut in there!)The movie is funny,sad,and many more. Go see it for yourself.

My 10 year old twin grandsons play basketball and they loved this movie. They were glued to it, and I enjoyed it too.

This movie isn't worth too much thought. It's basically one of those Disney live action things we saw as kids in a "cafetorium" while sitting cross-legged -- you know, the ones with the short beforehand that started with the paintbrush "painting in" the wildlife setting? ("In the Spraaaang, the young otters retahrn to Bahr Coun-tree...") Anyone who ever saw "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" will recognize the tone and plot of the "Like Mike" instantly.
The performances are pretty good, though. Despite straight-as-an-arrow writing that has no surprises, you get people like Eugene Levy in the supporting parts. You get some fun cameos from real NBA players, and you get Crispin Glover as a truly creepy villain for a movie like this. The coach of l'il Bow Wow's team does a decent job with little to go on, and aside from Glover the adults and kids in the movie interact pretty credibly. Nobody's a complete idiot -- that's kind of unusual in a kids' movie, now I think of it. The movie's well-cast and well-acted, for what it is.
Most of all, though, you get Morris Chestnut's performance as Tracy, the NBA player assigned to keep track of the kid phenom. Chestnut really made the movie for me. He took the sort of role that could have been career death, and he made the movie. He's good enough that I looked him up afterward, to see what else he'd done.
Anyway, if you do happen to have kids who would like to see this one, don't assume you won't be able to sit through it with them. It's got its points.

While I'd seen, and loved, this movie many years ago as a child, I just knew my basketball loving son would adore it! He was so excited to see a young Bow wow in this adorable comedy movie doing all those tricks and special basketball moves. He told me that he wanted to be a kid NBA player now that he's seen Like Mike. Even after it was over he couldn't stop talking about it. So if your kid(or you!) loves sports movies, especially basketball, then this is golden! Yes, it's an older movie, but you'll love it like it's brand-new!
