Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this straight-to-DVD sequel to Like Mike features some of the same themes about the love of basketball, what it means to be a friend, and how there's no "I" in team. Some of the adult streetball players insult Jerome and his friends until Jerome proves he's got extraordinary skills on the court. There is frequent use of mild insults from "jerk" to "idiot" to "fool," but there are no harsher swear words. Families should take note that there is moderate innuendo when it comes to women spectators and fans (aka "groupies"). In one scene, Triple J is in a music video sitting in a Jacuzzi with two girls who are in bikinis; and a grown-up couple flirts and shares a kiss. Tweens will be reminded of the importance of sticking by your friends and playing with your team not for your own glory.

Sexual Content

The team's publicist Lexy is called "Sexy Lexy," because she's beautiful and wears form-fitting outfits. In one scene, Lexy and one of the players share a quick kiss after flirting for half of the movie. Triple-J briefly appears in a music video where he's in a Jacuzzi with two girls in bikinis. Triple-J goes on a limo ride with older players and girls who are dressed provocatively.

Violence

Some players are mean to and aggressive with Triple J and his friends on the court (trash talking and pushing), and one player is an ex con with an ankle bracelet who acts menacing toward the younger players. During a game, one boy falls so hard he sprains his ankle.

Language

Mild language and insults include "brainless," "choker," "loser," "chump," "jerk," "fool," "loser" "stupid," "idiot," "scrub," and other similar epithets.

Social Behavior

Like most sports movies, there are positive messages about teamwork, friendship, and the difference between loving a game and doing it just as a means to achieve fame and fortune. There are some subtle sexist messages too, in the form of sexualized female characters.

Consumerism

There's a lot of Nike in this movie. Not only are the MJ-inscribed sneakers Nikes but lots of the sportswear worn or shown is also Nike. The store Foot Locker is mentioned once, and a pair of Chuck Taylor sneakers are also highlighted in a scene.
