At first, a half-live action, half-animated mid-‘90s feature film about space aliens, the Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan may sound like an odd combination, but such is the delightful charm of Space Jam. When the Looney Tunes are kidnapped by a greedy outer space amusement park mogul and his diminutive minions, they challenge their captors to a game of basketball to win their freedom. Enlisting the somewhat reluctant help of recently retired NBA legend Jordan, the resulting basketball showdown is an epic, no-holds barred, brilliantly slapstick spectacle certain to entertain parents, kids, and children of the ‘90’s alike. Also starring NBA all-stars Charles Barkley, Shawn Bradley, Larry Johnson, Patrick Ewing and Muggsy Bogues.
