Review

Our Score
In this part-animated fantasy comedy, American basketball star Michael Jordan makes a charismatic big-screen acting debut alongside the entire Warner Bros cartoon catalogue. Children will love the energy of both the live and animated characters, and there's plenty to keep adults amused, too, as aliens from an ailing intergalactic theme park called Moron Mountain are ordered to acquire the services of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig et al for a new attraction. In a desperate attempt to keep their freedom, the animated superstars challenge their would-be captors to a basketball game and increase their odds of success by kidnapping Jordan. The humour cleverly mixes typical Looney Tunes gags with references to Reservoir Dogs, comic jibes at their sports star's new choice of career (baseball) and some hilarious moments provided by Bill Murray. And Jordan is joined in the film by other basketball luminaries, including Charles Barclay and Larry Bird.

Summary

Aliens arrive on Earth to abduct the Looney Tunes gang as a new attraction at their failing intergalactic theme park. To keep their freedom, Bugs Bunny and friends challenge the invaders to a high-stakes basketball game, calling on Michael Jordan to save the day and send the extraterrestrials back where they came from. Live action and animated comedy, starring Bill Murray and Danny DeVito, with the voices of Billy West and Bill Farmer.
