francis’s review published on Letterboxd:
let me say a couple of 16 things.
- This is really like watching warner brothers jerk off right in front of my face.
- So your telling me that this takes place in the Space Jam universe but there’s not a single point in this movie where LeBron ever mentions the original Space Jam.
- LeBron constantly trying to teach his son lessons about life is exactly how I imagine how he is with his actual kids.
- We knew this was going to be bad when they use the “ha ha Kevin Hart is short joke” for promotion.
- I hope Steven Yeun was paid a FAT check to associate himself with this movie.
- I wonder if Don Cheadle even knew what an algorithm was before he signed up for this movie.
- I should’ve took a shot every time someone says algorithm.
- I wonder how much money Don Cheadle was paid to be in this movie.
- Don Cheadle saying “You mad bro?” has to be a top moment in his career.
- The writers probably had the biggest grin on their faces when they came up with the name “Al G Rhythm” for the algorithm.
- I love how now that I have watched this movie, I could never watch Mad Max: Fury Road (for the first time) without thinking about THAT scene.
- Why is Rick & Morty in this?
- A Clockwork Orange is probably the LAST movie I would ever associate with a fucking kids movie even if they are only in the background.
- Stanley Kubrick is probably rolling in his grave right now seeing warner brothers use his works in movies like this and “Ready Player One”.
- Daffy Duck cosplaying as Superman calling himself “Super Duck” is ironically my favorite part of this commerical (second to them playing the old Batman theme and the justice league in the justice league cartoon artwork showing up, so I guess the entire DC bit I guess.)
- The line “He’s like Superman with a high top fade” is what burned the coffin for me.
