About this movie

Welcome to the Jam! When NBA champion and cultural icon LeBron James and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered‐up roster of NBA and WNBA stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest‐stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready‐for‐action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.

The second paragraph of this review has spoilers, but the first paragraph does not. I really loved this movie, and for several different reasons! The reasons may be a bit hard to explain, but they're, of course, positive, and I'll try my hardest to explain in a moment! Most people don't like this movie mainly because they think it had bad acting, and because the movie was more like a ginormous commercial rather than an actual movie with story, but those are almost the only 2 major problems, and besides, it was more of just like showing ads in the background than like fully showing a commercial, therefore I didn't care and almost didn't notice until lots of people been saying stuff about it, and most people may not notice, too. But, or "and", this doesn't make it bad, at least not completely. There was still lots of great things about this movie, such as life lessons, comedy, action, adventure, other awesome and interesting things that happen, and so much more! There is even a large combination of live-action and animation with great CGI and special effects! This movie is family-friendly as well. Take a look at paragraph 2 for more examples, but they may have spoilers. The reason why I give 9 stars instead of 10 is because of a couple small problems, and I feel like the movie could've been a bit more somewhat better, but yeah. PARAGRAPH 2: One of the reasons I love this movie is because of its surprising special effects, along with both animation and live-action with CGI combined! So if you only like one or the other, or both, this movie can be for all of them. And another, is that. In the movie, the main-key character of the movie, Lebron, goes on an epic adventure through a computer-like universe of many different movie and TV show planets and worlds, called the Server-verse with the Looney Toons characters to get the gang back together since they were separated, and once they were all back together, they later, have an epic whole-new-level game of basketball, and must win if Lebron is going to go back home and the Looney Toons characters not to get deleted, they play against an enemy team, called the Goon Squad, with each player in that team with their own elemental abilities and powers, and the Looney Toons characters using their abilities as well. So basically, has an epic and, somewhat, unpredictable plot (In some ways at least)! It is also like an enormous crossover of hundreds of different kinds of characters and cameos! This movie also has a fine amount of life lessons as well, like, for example, Lebron developing a better relationship between him and his son from certain things. This movie is full of all sorts of great things, but it has too much hate and I wished that it had more love, and that people would focus more on the movie's good things and elements it provides. I love this movie and may never forget it! (Please, God, let there be more love for this movie, or in the future or something, at least!!!!) It is NOT complete garbage.

There wasn't one part of this movie you could enjoy. It was a lebron in love with himself fest; and although his acting and flopping on the court deserves academy nods, in front of the camera he's as insecure as he's ever been. MJ wins, yet again

Terrible, LeBron is not an actor and should not be in movies. Weak plot, acting was terrible, the only good was the voice acting. The best part of the movie was when it ended. I had to stop watching the movie 3 times before finishing it because it was so bad. LeBron destroyed a classic
