First and foremost Space Jam is a terrible movie. Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever to play the game, but his acting is worse than his baseball playing (and for those of you who don’t follow sports, a two year old who has never seen a baseball game is better than Michael Jordan).
This re-release of the movie is another example of Hollywood misreading the movie viewing public. Space Jam enjoyed a bit of resurgence on the internet when someone discovered that the Space Jam website from 1997 was still up on the net. People for some reason went ape shit over this (because people are dumb) and so immediately Warner Bros started thinking “we need to make a sequel with LeBron James!” Admittedly James is a better actor than Jordan (not better ball player, shut your whore mouth if you think that) but not by much, and the last good Looney Toons thing WB made was Daffy Duck’s Quack Busters from the 80’s, which was mostly older shorts with new footage of Daffy, Porkey, and Bugs to fill in the gaps. Other than that the WB is clueless with those characters, so a Space Jam 2 will undoubtedly suck.
However, it seems the sequel nonsense has finally died out and WB might be using this re-release of Space Jam to test the waters for the sequel. Either way this movie sucks and doesn’t deserve your time or money.
