The director noted that the 1996 film connected the plot to Jordan’s personal life, while the new film lacks “a personal connection to LeBron.”

The filmmaker also had harsh words for the new Bugs Bunny, stating that he “looked like one of those bland stuffed animals you buy at an airport gift shop to take your child with you when your business trip has gone on too long.”
Pytka also dismissed the new soundtrack as “insignificant”, saying the original film’s cast was “far superior,” including actors such as Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle and Bill Murray and NBA stars Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley or Tyrone Bogues.
