LeBron James’ Space Jam isn’t getting much love from the critics, and now it’s getting lambasted by the original Space Jam director. Joe Pytka, the director of the original 1996 Space Jam, says he is not so keen on the new version starring LeBron James. According to TMZ, it took Pytka “5 separate sessions to complete its 2-hour runtime.”

Via TMZ:

“The director has several issues with the reboot, starting with LBJ. Pytka points out when “Space Jam” was made in 1996, MJ wasn’t just the best basketball player … he was the biggest celebrity in the world.

Joe says LeBron’s an incredible athlete and a very good actor, but adds … “The truth is that LeBron ain’t Michael.” On top of that, Pytka says his film tied the plot to MJ’s personal life — retiring from hoops to play baseball — while the new movie’s missing a personal connection to LeBron.”

Despite the criticism, the movie made $32 million weekend at the box office.

LeBron has other reasons to smile, it won’t be too long before he joins the billionaire club.
