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.

So whether it's your first time watching the movie or it’s your fifteenth, you will have plenty to chuckle at.

What follows is a hilarious adventure culminating in an epic basketball match that you have to see to believe.
