Released in 1996, 'Space Jam' brings together an impressive roster of stars - Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Lola Bunny, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Elmer Fudd, and others to create a crossover between the cartoon world (or the Warner Brothers world) and the '3D world'.

Whether you are a cartoon fan or a basketball fan, there is so much to enjoy for each group. And if you happen to love both then you are in for a ride.

Along with 'The Lion King', 'Toy Story' and other animated classics, 'Space Jam' remains one of the fondest movies for any '90s kid. Be it the slapstick comedy that defines Looney Tunes or the inspirational underdog story, there is so much to be appreciated in the movie. So much so that it literally redefines going down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world filled with wonderful characters. So whether it's your first time watching the movie or it’s your fifteenth, you will have plenty to chuckle at.

The story revolves around a group of aliens from outer space coming to Earth to kidnap the Looney Tunes.

Once he actually realizes his mistake, he must now take the help of basketball legend Michael Jordan and his friends like Daffy Duck, Lola Bunny, Larry Bird and others to try and defeat the aliens. What follows is a hilarious adventure culminating in an epic basketball match that you have to see to believe.
