That Space Jam 2 hasn't been approved for release in China despite LeBron's groveling for their regime is extremely funny. On the merits as movies, both are absolute garbage that aren't worth watching even for children.

This.

At best it is probably slightly better, which aint saying much because the original was garbage too.

I thought the new one was abysmal. It's been a long time since I've watch the first but I kinda remember it being more of a Looney Tunes cartoon that, while totally about Michael Jordan, didn't rely on him to entertain the audience. The new one tries to have Lebron James pull along a story and his acting is so bad (Michael's wasn't great either but, again, the first smartly wasn't trying to do that).

Cheadle was also completely uninteresting compared to what I remember from De Vito's villain. Obviously they're both cartoonishly evil but Cheadle just came across annoying versus De Vito's fun (it probably helps that one was a cartoon). And then the Goon Squad was just boring in comparison to the Monstars. The Goon Squad didn't get much character than maybe 1 scene each whereas the Nerdluck/Monstar's were a prominent feature of the movie.

And 2 felt really cheap. I didn't like a lot of the 2D, especially in some of the references. The worst was the crowd of WB properties at the game looked extremely cheap. The costumes were just awful and they did weird canned animations the whole time, which I guess makes production sense because they're not actually reacting to anything but it just looks dumb. And I think the cartoon crowd were all kinda poor CG. The CG Looney Tunes looked pretty great though.

Gonna have to rewatch the first but I at least remember that mostly just being Looney Tunes fun.

So after rewatching 1:

  • Michael definitely cannot act. And the closeup reaction shots sprinkled throughout were really stupid and cheesy. I still think the first was smart in that it didn't try to hang an attempt at an emotional story on his lack of acting talent.
  • The Animation didn't hold up as well as I had remembered. The 2D was fine but any time it was in a 3D environment or interacting with live action it didn't look great (except with Michael's gym bag... for some reason that looked pretty good). And obviously with it's age, the cgi was very bad. CG inflatable Wayne Knight was kinda scary lookin'.
  • Most of the live action cast being basketball players that can't really act was not super fun to watch. Wayne Knight and Bill Murray were enjoyable though (more so than any supporting cast in 2).
  • For whatever reason 2 made Lebron look like a complete ass (I dunno anything about him so I dunno how true that is but it's odd that given the chance at a fictional version that's what they'd go with) but 1 made Michael seem kinda cool as far as personality. He's good with poking fun at his baseball attempt, he's really chill with his kids, and he just seems overall pretty pleasant. Seems like a nice dude.
  • 2 spent a lot of time building up and then paying off a really cheesy moral to the story. I don't know that 1 even really tried to have any sorta moral, just seemed interested in telling it's wacky story.
  • I don't really care about basketball but it was way more entertaining watching 1's looney but mostly followable game versus 2's silly videogame rules that don't matter and made scoring totally arbitrary. Obviously the scores are whatever and just there to drive the plot but 2's being as silly as it was just made it way less interesting in my opinion.
I'm fully aware that it might just be nostalgia but I still enjoyed 1. 2 absolutely sucked.

The first. Plotwise I preferred the toons recruiting Jordan for their crisis rather than LeBron recruiting the toons, especially since they weren't his first choice. The goons weren't given enough introduction and the game itself had no structure which made it pretty pointless.

I'm not sure I'll bother with the new one even after it eventually hits NF.

The first one was bad enough, and that at least had Jordan.

I watched the original as an adult and it absolutely holds up.

Jordan and the other basketball players don't know how to act, but that just adds to the comedy. The Tunes are animated really nicely, the CGI is the only thing that really has aged poorly.

This. I liked the original as a kid (Lola may have had something to do with it) but looking back damn that movie was awful.

The first one is a dumb kids movie with some charming moments. The 2nd one, I just hated. Lebron is not as likable as Jordan. They shove in all these WB properties just to do it. The humor is all "haha look at this. WB owns this haha". It feels dated. 2nd one's soundtrack sucked hard. They had no remix of the original theme and that's a great sin in my eyes.

Lebron is not as likable as Jordan.

He's also not as famous as Jordan. Back when MJ did Space Jam, he was easily among the biggest name in sports. This was coming just a few years after MJ and the "Dream Team" dominated at the 1992 Olympics (which came on the heels of the USSR defeating the US's basketball team -- among countless other losses -- during the 88 Olympics)

Lebron is a talented athlete, but he was never as high profile and he's always going to live in Jordan's shadow.
