Editorial Reviews

Product Description

His Airness and His Hareness; what a team! Michael Jordan slams, Bugs Bunny jams and a cavalcade of Looney Tunes and NBA stars hoop it up in the rim-rattlin', out-of-this-world, roundball romp: Space Jam.

Review

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 --Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

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. --Todd McCarthy, Variety

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."

SPACE JAM is now available as a deluxe 2-DVD set, and it's
about time! Drastically misunderstood and ridiculously
panned, Joe Pytka's madcap hook-up of Bugs Bunny,
Michael Jordan, and the wackiest basketball game in
film history is really a gem of a charming folktale,
playfully letting the viewer in on "the real reason"
for Jordan's 1st return to the game that he has
mastered so well.
It's unfortunate that so many apparently have some
serious problems dealing with an African American
celebrity respectfully placed in a Fantasy situation.
Nevertheless, the film is a load of laughs, with
some wicked satirical pokes at several of the NBA's
most testosterone-happy superstars, suddenly
deprived of their professional manhood!
Check the scene with macho-man Charles Barkley
getting a serious dose of comeuppance from a girl's
team on a playground court! Whether you know the
sport or not, the scene is a riot!

For all the disdain that this film has gotten for being
an apparent boardroom idea, SPACE JAM itself is
a well-made film, with a solid story cleanly told.
Jordan -in being smart enough not to play anyone
but himself- comes off very warm and highly
personable. Too, for one who's not a professional
actor, he works remarkably well, considering that
cartoon characters that he's with onscreen had to
be put in (via computer and traditional animation)
long after his performance. All in all, Jordan
copes with the camera far more competently than
one would have reason to expect.
Truth to tell, Shaq could learn a thing or two
regarding underplaying here!

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.
