Michael Jordan slams, Bugs Bunny Jams, the Looney Tunes
stars hoop it up and the jokes fly as they take on the Nerdlucks in a hardcourt game to decide if the Looney Tunes remain here or become attractions at a far-off galactic off-ramp known as Moron Mountain. The Nerdlucks have a secret weapon: they've stolen the skills of some of the top NBA stars...

Let me start off by saying that this is a movie for the kiddies only. And I have to admit to being surprised that Warner chose this title to release as a 2-disc collection.

We Brits are probably not going to get this as well as the Americans, mainly because we are not a huge basketball nation - it's always seemed too much like netball to me.

Having said that, the movie is fun enough to keep the kids entertained for a few hours, and this collection also has a number of classic Looney Tunes cartoons included - which are almost worth the asking price themselves.

It could have been a far worse film - then again, it could have been a much better one. All your favourite Looney Tunes characters are present and correct, it's just that it's not as much fun as the original shorts.

Extras include commentary by Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck & director Joe Pytka; Production notes; Remastered picture and sound; Jammin' With Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan: go behind the scenes; Bugs Vs. Daffy: Battle of the Music Video Stars; Music clips from classic cartoons; 2 music videos; Game Demo; Four Looney Tunes cartoons: Another Froggy Evening, Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers, Night of the Living Duck and The Duxorcist.
