There’s a quick part in Space Jam where Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam, donning black suits, white shirts and black ties, shoot out the teeth of one of the antagonist Monstars. While I was amused like most kids, I never truly understood what it was referencing. It wouldn’t be until about a decade later that I watched Space Jam and realized that the music, suits, guns and poses were in fact a tribute to the classic movie Pulp Fiction. Being that Pulp Fiction is one of the best movies of the 90s, it’s pretty awesome that they threw that in Space Jam. There are some other pop culture references in this movie and there’s even a shot taken at Disney when Bugs Bunny asks “What kind of Mickey Mouse organization would call a team ‘The Ducks’?” Space Jam is still awesome to this day and a few subtle jokes are just an extra incentive to watch. It also makes a good excuse when your roommate asks why you are constantly watching a children movie on your VCR.
