10. Space Jam (1996)
Space Jam is a 1996 American live-action/animated sports comedy drama film starring basketball player Michael Jordan and featuring the Looney Tunes cartoon characters. In the film, after Jordan’s retirement he is captured Bugs Bunny and is asked to play a match to defeat the Nerdlucks, a criminal alien group. The plot is not very strong but let’s not forget that this is a film made for kids. It’s still however a fun and enjoyable film even for adults who can enjoy some few laughs. Jordan is not an actor so we can’t trash him for his performance. It’s not not the worst acting performance ever, at least I can give him that.
