Warner Bros. attempted to revitalize its animation division with this family adventure that blended live action and animation in the style of Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), reportedly coming in with a price tag of $100 million. Basketball legend Michael Jordan stars as himself, a retired sports hero trying his hand at baseball and failing miserably. Meanwhile, the Looney Tunes gang, led by Bugs Bunny, are kidnapped by aliens called the Nerdlucks. It seems that the Nerdlucks' theme park, Moron Mountain (a barely-veiled dig at Disney) is failing to attract customers. The space invaders are convinced that the appearance of Bugs and his pals Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzalez will beef up business. Bugs makes his captors a deal -- they'll play a game of basketball for their freedom. When the Nerdlucks stack the deck by pilfering the talent of NBA superstars Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing, the Warner Bros. heroes enlist the aid of Jordan, who returns to the court to help the classic characters. While he prepares to play, Jordan is aided by fellow celebrity Bill Murray. Director Joe Pytka previously created many of the television commercials that featured Jordan as a paid endorser.

Space Jam slams on blu-ray disc. I saw this movie 6 times at the big screen, and I love this movie. A mixture of live action and animation makes this movie one of my favorite. I bought it on blu-ray disc and the picture is much better, clearer, and sharper in high definition. Michael Jordan, who makes his feature film debut as himself, joins Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes characters as they challenge to a basketball game with a group of little aliens who came to earth and took away the minds and body of some of the big names in the NBA like Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues, and Larry Johnson. This movie slams on blu-ray and DVD!
This movie is my favorite movie of all time and im so glad I bought it on blu-ray. It had a fantastic plot and a great set of characters (my favorite has to be Micheal Jordan ;) he gets me riled up like no one has ever before) So I first discovered this movie when I was 10 years old and had nothing to do. My mom suggested I go see a movie so I followed her advice and did it I went into the theater expecting a really bad movie but this movie made me feel so good inside. I came out of the movie theater with my pants moist from micheal Jordon dunking that basketball at the end of the movie.I really enjoy this movie and I give it 5 stars.
I have just bought this DVD and I am a very satisfied customer. I first watched this movie when I was a 6 year old child and I still love it today! I love the theme of basketball, the story, comedy, the awesome music, EVERYTHING. Watching this movie is very enjoyable to me and the animation is brilliant! I love all of the characters! Old and new!
this movie rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
