Come on, who doesn't like SPACE JAM?

We're heading into the final stretch of March Madness, so let's get another look at why Michael Jordan is so great.

"Simpler and cruder than Who Framed Roger Rabbit in terms of story and technique, this is still a great deal of fun, confirming that Jordan is every bit as mythological a creature as Daffy Duck or Yosemite Sam."

Swackhammer, owner of the amusement park on planet Moron Mountain, is desperate get new attractions, and decides the Looney Tune characters would be perfect. He sends his diminutive underlings to get them, whether Bugs Bunny & Co. want to go or not. Well armed for their size, Bugs Bunny is forced to trick them into agreeing to a competition to determine their freedom. Taking advantage of their puny and stubby legged foes, the gang selects basketball for the surest chance of winning. However, the Nerdlucks turn the tables and steal the talents of leading professional basketball stars and become massive basketball bruisers known as the Monstars. In desperation, Bugs Bunny calls on the aid of Micheal Jordan, the Babe Ruth of Basketball, to help them have a chance at winning their freedom. Written by Kenneth Chisholm
