Reviewed by rannynm 8 We all love to root for the underdog, when he becomes top dog through a fluke rather than hard work, well, it's not so satisfying. This movie followed suit to few others of similar content in the past, with a real Athlete in the movie, the others did very well, but not Thunderstruck. There are a lot of funny moments when Brian is playing with his team and he is showing how really klutzy he is. If you want to make a Space Jam or LikeMike type of movie it has to have magic, even though there was someinexplicable magic in this film it wasn't that game winning shot kindthat leaves your exhilarated and satisfied with the final triumph. Initially I figured that this was a Space Jam like film for this generation of young hoopsters to see a current fan favorite in a life situation other than simply on the court or I thought it might be a Like Mike kind of film. It is however a movie that children over the age of 10 may learna few valuable lessons about life, truly believing in one self, andbeing honest with not only your self, but with people we come incontact with.
