Plot Summary

Teenage rap sensation Bow Wow makes his feature film debut as an orphan boy named Calvin who lives out his dream of playing in the NBA—with a little help from a magical pair of sneakers! Soon after he laces up the mysterious high-tops, Calvin's amazing basketball skills land him a spot on the Los Angeles Knights team. In addition to hitting 25-foot jumpers and throwing down rim-rattling slam dunks, the small superstar sets his sights on another dream...having a family. But first he and his pals must defeat Bittleman, the orphanage headmaster trying to sabotage Calvin's career and dash his hopes of ever being adopted. Filled with high-flying fun and hilarious hijinks, Like Mike will have your whole family cheering into overtime!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Pleasant but not more than recycled jock piffle. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jul 4, 2002

Rotten: As with too many studio pics, plot mechanics get in the way of what should be the lighter-than-air adventure. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: One of the summer's pleasant surprises. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 11, 2002

Fresh: Both the slapstick and the schmaltz are workmanlike enough to keep the little ones' eyes wide and bright. Grown-ups should be prepared to have their nerves milked dry. – Gene Seymour, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010
