Michael Jordan, Wayne Knight, Bill Murray, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Granny, Alonzo Mourning, Pepe Le Pew, Charles Oakley, Tweety Bird, Danny Ainge, Bugs Bunny, Patrick Ewing … need we say more? This is the slam dunk of animated/live-action basketball comedies. Frenetically paced, with rat-a-tat jokes, colorful animation, and lively music, Space Jam is good family fun.
