Like Mike (2002)11K
Like Mike: Directed by John Schultz. With Shad Moss, Morris Chestnut, Jonathan Lipnicki, Brenda Song. A 13-year-old orphan becomes an NBA superstar after trying on a pair of sneakers with the faded initials “M.J.” inside.
“This is a formulaic kinds movie in all senses where you can see every script movie coming a mile away but still manages to be harmless fun. Little Bow Wow plays an orphan who is given a pair of basketball shoes that he believes belonged to Michael Jordan and in turn give him unbelievable skills that he ends up getting signed by the LA Knights NBA team. There are the Normal lesson s of morality and family values you would expect from this kind of movie which thankfully the child actors do not lay on to thick. Moris Chestnut does well in the father figure role and there is able support from Crispin Glover (I bet he regrets asking for so much money that he got written out of u0026#39;Back to the Future 2) and Robert Forster (thank god QT saved him), which all results in the inevitable bit not disappointing ending. Would I watch it again? Only with kids present.”
