CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on July 15th, 2021, reviewing the reboot of the popular “Space Jam: A New Legacy” in theaters and streaming on HBO Max beginning July 16th.

LeBron “King” James replaces Michael Jordan from 1996 for this go-around, as King and the Looney Tunes characters – including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny and more – have to suit up again to play basketball against another set of the challenging villains … this time trapped in the internet rather than outer space. The leader of the villain team is Al-G-Rhythm (Don Cheadle), who kidnaps LeBron’s fictional son Dom (Cedric Joe) as enticement.
