Space Jam  (1996)

When retired basketball superstar Michael Jordan is suddenly plucked from Earth during a live-action golf game with Bill Murray and Larry Bird, the greatest basketball player of all time finds himself somewhere in the animated cosmos with a merry band of Looney Tunes.  Enslaved by the evil owner of a failing planetary amusement park, Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Elmer, Tweety and the gang find themselves fighting for their freedom in an epic hoops showdown.  The film also features an undeniably slammin’ soundtrack from a mid-’90s R&B dream team that boasts Seal, D’Angelo, Salt-N-Pepa and Quad City DJ’s.
