Yeah, it's bad. Really bad.
The entire movie was little more than a massive PR stunt to assist in covering up MJs illegal gambling suspension and keep him in headlines. It kept him the family friendly household nice guy his PR team and about 500 other corporate interests needed him to be. At the time, there had never been an athlete so marketable and profitable. His image was absolutley everything. People behind the scenes always knee he was a ruthless compulsive gambling asshole, but this was covered up throughout his entire career because his PR team was so good and there was so much money to be made off his name and image.
Krauss and Sterling completely covered up his year long suspension and allowed him to "retire" for a year due to how valuable he was not only to the league, but to so many brands he endorsed. Exposing him would have cost billions across the board. So they negotiated a deal, part of it was to play minor league baseball, even though he sucked. This kept him relevant within the sports community. The other part was making a family friendly movie set to debut around the time of his planned return to the NBA. The film is little more than an hour long PR stunt aimed to explain his departure from the league, touching on his father's death and painting him as an average guy, with an average family in an average home, who just so happens to be the best basketball player in the world.
MJ didnt want to do movies. This was the only feature length film the man ever made and it wasn't made because he had a passion for acting or even the money. It wasn't the only one made because of his tight schedule either. Look at Shaq, he starred in multiple features throughout the 90s. It was a PR move and cover-up. Point blank, period.
