Space Jam teams up His Airness, Michael Jordan, with His Hareness, Bugs Bunny, for a fun, and funny, family film.
Michael Jordan has retired from basketball, and currently playing baseball, when Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes pals ask for his help in playing a b-ball game against diminuative aliens from Moron Mountain. These aliens have stolen the talent of 5 NBA players, including Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing, and are now larger than life. Since this is Looney Tunes Land, this game is NOT your average basketball game. If it was, it wouldn't be any fun.
Though not an actor of any kind in anyone's book, Michael Jordan does a very good job of interacting with his cartoon co-stars. Most of the jokes are well done and the basketball game itself is a lot of fun. In addition, it is quite funny to watch the 5 NBA players that had their "games" stolen trying to cope with their newfound ordinaryness.
This movie is not groundbreaking by any means and most all of the original Looney Tunes cartoons are better. But this movie never tries to be more than it is: a good time. And at that, it succeeds very well.

The new "Space Jam" 2-Disc DVD is a fun addition to any Looney Tunes or family DVD collection.
Disc One features the film, which can be enjoyed with commentary from the director, as well as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Most DVD commentaries are a bore to sit through--and this one does have its over technical moments (especially if you have young children who "believe in" Bugs or Daffy), but the comments from the characters are very witty--including a jab that Bugs throws at Michael Jordan early in the presentation (concerning his brief baseball career).
Rounding out the first disc is the theatrical trailer of the film (this is almost a MUST with me for any DVD).
The Second Disc is a nice bonus and could have easily been packaged as a stand-alone item. It features a "Making of Space Jam" and several Looney Tunes shorts (from the 1980's and 1990's), as well as the 1988 television special, "Bugs vs. Daffy: Battle of the Music Video Stars". Speaking of music videos, the second disc also features "Fly Like an Eagle" and "Monstars Anthem".
This is a great gift for any Looney Tunes fan. Folks who liked it as children in 1996 (when the film was released) should still like it as teens. Children who have never seen it will also enjoy it. In short, it's a keeper.

Even with the technology of recent animated films, Space Jam still holds it ground as one of the best. It combines great animation with the classic humor of Looney Tunes. This film is great for basketball lovers of all ages because it includes humor for both kids and adults. This film is also a must have for any Michael Jordan Fan. An all-around awesome film.

The dual-disk is entertaining, especially if you enjoy looney tunes cartoons which are included in the special features. The behind the scenes and commentary are interesting and informing. Good if you are interested in animation or film making. The special features includes two music videos: Seal's "Fly like and Eagle" and The Monstar's Theme by a selection of rappers from the era. It does not include R. Kelly's video for "I Believe I can Fly."

Although I was a kid, and about the right age for this movie when it came out, I've never actually seen it until just now. So I don't have the benefit of nostalgia guiding me during my viewing.

This is a pretty strange movie when you actually consider it. A major motion picture, featuring tons of traditional animation, during the time when such things were quickly starting to get phased out thanks to cg graphics. And especially strange when you consider that this could very well have found its roots in a promotion years before where there were baseball cards featuring baseball players with Looney Toons characters. I would know, because I had a bunch of those cards.

While the movie overall wasn't great, I did enjoy watching it just to try to predict which scenes Michael Jordan swore at his costars during filming. The man is infamous for exploding at people when he starts to get competitive, even during exhibitions, or filming for commercials. Also, there's a hilarious amount of Jordan worship. It's his movie basically, but man, you'd think the world's economy revolved around him in the mid 90's or something.

Now when the movie is about him, he's the weakest part of the movie. He's just not a good actor. Worse, he's interacting with cartoon characters, and has to do a bit of physical slapstick acting with them. And he is terrible at it. All of the computer effects in the world can't hide his deadpan expression even when he's being smashed into a basketball sized man.

Bill Murray, even though his time in this film was limited, stole the show. This is even a reserved, less sarcastic version, and he just stole every scene he was in without trying. Whatever he was paid to be in this, he deserved triple that.

Maybe I am a traitor to my generation but this movie has really not aged well. Considering the budget ($80 million! though much of this is probably Michael Jordan and co's salaries) I am surprised how inconsistent the animation quality is. At some points where the characters are interacting with MJ the look is seamless and looks gorgeous but in some of the action sequences everything looks rushed. I know this movie was made at the dawn of CGI but what puts this in perspective is that Toy Story came out the previous year in 1995 with a much smaller budget. While Toy Story's animation still holds up and looks only somewhat dated, Space Jam's is very lackluster in comparison.

Also, the plot is absolutely paper-thin. When MJ appears to help the toons train for their big basketball game, they literally only "train" for one day before they have to play the bad guys. I love a good training montage as much as anyone else; would it have killed them to maybe spend a little more time actually training for this game? The toons clearly have only asked Michael to come help them win the game for them as opposed to working with them. What I'm talking away from this movie is that it only existed to stroke Michael Jordan's ego. The first time I saw SJ it was so exciting to see the biggest figure in the history of sports playing basketball with iconic cartoon characters. Now, it's just a sad commentary on how excessive and tasteless much of the 90's culture was. One of the only fun parts of the movie is seeing Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, etc. in their respective primes pretending to be completely inept. It is truly awesome.

In addition, can we talk about how Bill Murray is in this movie for less than 10 minutes? If we all have one take away from Space Jam it's that the lack of Bill Murray is absolutely inexcusable. I can only rate this two stars because we don't get enough screen time with the best Ghostbuster.
