I actually saw Like Mike the same day I saw the horrible Men in Black 2. Like Mike was really good. I feel this movie deserves more press than that garbage Men in Black 2. Lil Bow Wow actually suprised me with his acting. He was funny and sometimes dramatic. I really felt the character bond between Calvin (Lil Bow Wow) and his friend Murph (Jonathan Lipnicki). It was a cute film and can be great for the family. Parents take your kid to see Like Mike. I give it a perfect 10.
