(2021) (LeBron James, Cedric Joe) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: An NBA superstar must put together a team of Warner Bros. cartoon characters to take on his son's team in a digital universe basketball game.
NBA superstar LeBron James (LeBRON JAMES) hopes that his youngest son, 12-year-old Dom (CEDRIC JOE), will follow in his basketball footsteps, but the boy is more interested in playing and creating video games, which puts them at odds.
That comes to a head when Lebron is invited to the Warner Bros. studios to be part of WB 3000 where his digitized form will help sell the new offering. While Dom is naturally impressed, LeBron thinks it's one of the dumbest ideas he's ever heard. All of which infuriates the computer algorithm that's created that "serververse," Al G. Rhythm (DON CHEADLE), who digitizes and sucks both Dom and LeBron into that world.
Al easily wins over the boy's alliance and tells his dad the only way he can get him back is to play a game of basketball against his son. LeBron thinks that will be a slam dunk, but then learns that while Dom is going to use digitally enhanced versions of real-life pro players, he's going to have to rely on Bugs Bunny (voice of JEFF BERGMAN) to put together a team of WB cartoon characters as his team. That includes Lola Bunny (voice of ZENDAYA), Daffy Duck (voice of ERIC BAUZA), Granny (voice of CANDI MILO), and a host of others.
With the odds stacked against him and his team, LeBron tries to figure out how to win and thus free himself and his son from the digital world -- and prevent the cartoon characters from being deleted forever -- or risk ending up stuck in the serververse forever.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Many probably will, especially if they're fans of the original film, basketball, or video games.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some cartoon violence and some language.
