Space Jam

… in which Michael Jordan, Bill Murray, Bugs Bunny, and Daffy Duck play basketball against evil monsters.

PG, 88 minutes

What happened to Michael Jordan between his 1993 retirement and his 1995 comeback? If your answer wasn’t “he played basketball with Bugs Bunny & Bill Murray against aliens who stole the b-ball prowess of Charles Barkley and Muggy Bogues,” then your answer was incorrect. But don’t worry. You can see the whole story in its supremely entertaining 1990s glory in Space Jam, the highest-grossing basketball film ever (sorry, He Got Game and Love & Basketball). MJ & Bugs didn’t quite become the Chris Tucker/Jackie Chan buddy-team we wanted, but this Harold Ramis-produced slapstick semi-cartoon surprised us all. (1996, Joe Pytka, PG, 88 min, DCP)
