In an interview a couple of years after the films release, long time Looney Tunes director Chuck Jones was highly critical of the movie. Jones felt it strayed too far from the source material, in particular, saying that Bugs would never openly recruit others in his battles. Jones further maintained that the Bugs he worked on would have single handedly dispatched with the aliens in short order. Jones also took exception with some of the film's dialogue, feeling that some one-liners were inconsistent or inappropriate, relating to the characters who said them. See more »

This movie was intended to be a kid's movie! And all of us MJ fans alike respect the movie simply because he was in it. The acting wasn't bad -- it was just on a children's level... of which it was intended! I really liked Space Jam when I was younger, I still like the movie from time to time, even. So saying it is like a Muppets movie is absurd! I do agree that Marvin the Martian should have been the villain, mainly because DeVito's character got on my nerves. I LOVE the fact that they brought a girl character... and presented her as the best ball player (aside from Jordan). During this time, we were all about political correction! I think this movie suits its own time and appeals to its intended audience.
