“The truth is that LeBron ain’t Michael,” he said while comparing the original movie’s star Michael Jordan to the sequel’s star LeBron James. He noted that the original film included a personal connection to MJ‘s life while the sequel didn’t have that.

Pytka said the sequel’s soundtrack is “insignificant” and that Bugs Bunny’s storyline is “heartbreaking.” He says the new version of Bugs “looked like one of those fluffy dolls you buy at an airport gift shop to bring your kid when your business trip has taken too long.”
