Sometimes Unadilla can be a little boring. So, on Sunday night, in continuing our tradition to re-live the 1990’s, I dug out my family’s Space Jam VHS for me and Daniel to watch. If you somehow missed out on this phenomenon, don’t worry: the movie’s 1996 website is still up and running.
The premise of the movie is…kind of lacking, honestly. Some aliens decide that they want to kidnap the Looney Tunes and make them into slaves at their amusement park, Moron Mountain. The Looney Tunes figure that since the aliens are short and can’t jump very high, that they should challenge them to a basketball game for their freedom. Seems dandy, until the aliens steel the talent of famed basket ball players Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Tyrone “Muggsy” Boges, Larry Johnson, and Shawn Bradley. So Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck decide to recruit Michael Jordan. Unfortunately, he has decided to retire from basketball and play baseball. So it takes some convincing, but he finally agrees to help the Looney Tunes. Then they play some basketball and win, of course, and Michael Jordan even makes it back just in time for his baseball game.
It’s a terrible movie. But we all remember the soundtrack:
Oh yeah, R. Kelly.
