A great movie from my childhood
24 August 2013 | by framar96See all my reviews

When i was a kid i used to watch it at least once a week.Now i'm a teenager and i still love it.

This movie is simply fun and entertaining and clearly aimed for children; its just great to see all the cartoons' characters which you like in a movie . The introduction about Michael Jordan's skills is epic as well as the final match.I really liked the soundtrack but not so much the graphic.

It sucks that this movie and Looney Tunes have been forgotten; 5.9 out 10 is just to low for this great movie, it must be rated and reviewed with the eyes of a child.
