Critics Consensus: While it's no slam dunk, Space Jam's silly, Looney Toons-laden slapstick and vivid animation will leave younger viewers satisfied -- though accompanying adults may be more annoyed than entertained.

'90s live-action-animation mix has some cartoon violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Space Jam is a 1996 live/animated comedy in which Michael Jordan joins Bugs Bunny and other Warner Brothers cartoon characters to defeat the "Monstars." Keeping with the tradition of older Warner Brothers cartoons, there's quite a bit of cartoon violence and exaggerated pratfalls. There's also some potty humor involving flatulence, and Porky Pig announcing, "I wet myself." Some of the jokes veer into adult territory, like a psychiatrist asking a basketball player who has lost his ability to play basketball if he is "unable to perform" in other areas. The main bad guy smokes a cigar. Gratuitous product placement in one scene, where Michael Jordan sips from a McDonald's soft drink cup while another character rattles off the names of four other brands. One of the characters is overweight, and there are constant jokes made about it at his expense. "Hell" and "sucks" are said.
