Overview

Pint-size rap music star Lil Bow Wow shows that he can play ball as well as he raps in this youth-oriented comedy about a young boy whose dream comes true in an unexpected way. Calvin Cambridge Lil Bow Wow is a 14-year-old boy, who, since the death of his parents, has been living in an orphanage run by the unpleasantly eccentric Stan Bittleman Crispin Glover. While the tough but caring Sister Theresa Anne Meara tries to encourage the kids, Calvin knows that he and most of the other kids his age are poor prospects for adoption. Calvin loves basketball and idolizes Michael Jordan, but he's too short to be much of a challenge to the older kids when shooting hoop at the playground. One day, Calvin discovers a pair of old basketball sneakers with the initials "MJ" written on the inside. Calvin is convinced they once belonged to Michael Jordan, but he can hardly believe what happens when he puts them on -- suddenly he's able to make superhuman jump shots and dunks just like a miniature version of Air Jordan himself. Calvin's newly developed talent on the court comes to the attention of Frank Bernard Eugene Levy, the manager of the Los Angeles Knights, an NBA team having a humiliating season. Bernard brings Calvin to the team as a novelty item, but with the help of Coach Wagner Robert Forster and the new kid's can-do attitude, the Knights start to climb out of the cellar and look like possible season champs. However, Tracey Reynolds Morris Chestnut, who used to be the team's star player, isn't happy to have his thunder stolen by a 14-year-old boy -- especially when he's made Calvin's roommate and de-facto guardian on the road. Like Mike also features cameo appearances by a number of pro basketball stars, including Allen Iverson, Chris Webber, and Jason Kidd.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
For anyone with hoop dreams, this fantasy is a slam-dunk. Child rapper Lil' Bow Wow stars as Calvin, a 13-year-old orphan whose life is transformed by a magical pair of sneakers that give him astounding basketball abilities. This pint-sized Michael Jordan is signed by the hapless Los Angeles Knights as a publicity stunt, becomes a sensation, and even forms a friendship with the team's sullen and selfish star, Tracey Reynolds (Morris Chestnut). Kids will cheer on the good-hearted Calvin as he triumphs on and off the court. Adding to the fun are cameos by such real-life NBA superstars as Allen Iverson, Jason Kidd, and David Robinson. Scoring off the bench: Eugene Levy (American Pie) as the Knights' enterprising promotions director; Robert Forster as the team's nurturing, no-nonsense coach; Jonathan Lipnicki (Stuart Little) as Calvin's best friend; and Jesse Plemons as Calvin's nemesis from the orphanage. With its heartwarming story and hilarious game footage that recalls the flubber-enhanced antics in the original The Absent-Minded Professor, Like Mike is a real winner for the whole family.
All Movie Guide
This fantasy gives the Nike catch phrase "It's gotta be the shoes" a whole new meaning. Transposing Rookie of the Year's pipsqueak-in-the-pros formula to basketball, Like Mike rides an astonishingly natural performance from rapper Lil Bow Wow all the way to easy grins and harmless escapism. The idea of a 14-year-old in the NBA also has an ironic timeliness, as the feature was released in an era in which the sport was coming under fire for enticing teenage athletes to skip college. As a socially responsible children's movie, however, Like Mike makes sure to include footage of Calvin Cambridge continuing to do his homework, even as he's on the road with the team, trailed by a media circus. (Less commendable is the copycat-prone scene in which Calvin gets zapped while fishing the sneakers in question from an electrical wire). Though it contains more establishing shots of its primary product tie-in (L.A.'s Staples Center) than actual jump shots, Like Mike does mostly have its priorities in order. With real player Spud Webb having demonstrated that height is not an absolute prerequisite for NBA success, the concept isn't even that far-fetched, though its execution is hardly seamless, with the dunking Calvin looking jerkily airlifted toward the basket. Lil Bow Wow holds the shakier moments together with a grounded performance, his doe eyes expressing volumes of excitement and disappointment. He also buries his instinctual rapper machismo, embracing the film's kiddie focus. Notable supporting performances include Crispin Glover, whose oddball tics are a pleasure in such a mainstream movie, and Jonathan Lipnicki, who still seems barely to have aged in the six years since Jerry Maguire.

    Lil Bow Wow Big in Like Mike

    Like Mike was the best basketball movie I have seen since Space Jam. I thought that Bow Wow did a great job protraying an orphan and that you could see some of your favorite NBA stars in the movie. One question to the production staff: WHERE IS MICHAEL JORDAN?!

    a great movie for young and old alike

    Like Mike is the Best Movie I Ever Saw

    I am 8 years old and saw the movie at the theatre, I really like basketball and would love to find sneakers like that. My favorite part was the slam dunk contest, when lil Bow Wow did Michael Jordan's dunk.

    Good for the entire family

    This really is a cute movie. My son and I went to see it (he had already seen it once) and I was really surprised. I kept me interested and didn't have anything objectionable in it. You never know what to expect with PG but it was just good-old fashioned fun. This would make a good Christmas present for younger boys and any sports-minded children. Very cute.
