Appealing movie, one of the summer's pleasant surprises.

Philadelphia Inquirer
It's basketball Fantasy Camp for the cost of a movie ticket.

Charlotte Observer
Lil' Bow Wow deserves a better-made film than this pleasant, sloppily assembled fairy tale.
42
Entertainment Weekly
Like Mike has the synthetically wrapped pseudo-charm of a perfunctory ''Flubber'' sequel.

New Times (L.A.)
I liked when they had the paint fights and the pillow fights.

Variety
The court action contains only a fraction of the hoops energy one would expect from a pic co-produced by NBA Entertainment -- and film suffers from the conspicuous absence of the title's Michael Jordan.
38
ReelViews
A soulless jumble of ineptly assembled cliches and pabulum that plays like a 95-minute commercial for NBA properties.
30
Washington Post
The frightening myths about adoption that run through Like Mike make even its happiest endings a little bit creepy.
20
Austin Chronicle
Like Mike is a slight and uninventive movie: Like the exalted Michael Jordan referred to in the title, many can aspire but none can equal. Even "Space Jam" was better than this.
10
Village Voice
A valueless kiddie paean to pro basketball underwritten by the NBA.
