Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Who Framed Roger Rabbit has long been one of DVD's most requested titles, and this two-disc set was worth the wait. A once-in-a-lifetime pleasure, this dizzying and dazzling tour de force combines, like no film before it, live-action and animation. With the loving craft of Disney, the outrageous humor of Warner Bros. cartoons, and the anarchic spirit of animator Tex Avery, this looney homage to film noir and animation's golden age conjures up Hollywood, circa 1947, and a delirious parallel cartoon universe, Toontown, where beloved "toons" born of pen and ink in the 1930s and '40s reside. Here, and nowhere else, will you see Donald Duck and Daffy Duck sharing the same stage and Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny as prank-playing partners. Heading the human cast is Bob Hoskins as down-and-out private eye Eddie Valiant, who is investigating the murder of Toontown owner Marvin Acme. The prime suspect is toon star Roger Rabbit, whose impossibly curvaceous wife, Jessica (indelibly voiced by Kathleen Turner) has been seen playing patty-cake (literally) with Acme. Or was it Jessica herself? ("I'm not bad, Mr. Valiant," she purrs, "I'm just drawn that way.") Or was Acme's murder part of a more diabolical plot that could erase Toontown from the map? Animation buffs especially will delight in the sly in-jokes ("Walt sent me," is the password into the Pen and Ink nightclub) and cameo appearances by such classic toons as Betty Boop, Yosemite Sam, and Dumbo. Hopping with entertaining extras, this set does full justice to this pioneering breakthrough and heartfelt labor of love. "Family Friendly" Disc 1 contains the full-screen version of the film, a segment about the making of the film, and the Roger Rabbit short subjects, "Tummy Trouble," "Rollercoaster Rabbit," and "Trail Mix-Up." Disc 2 is for the real "Enthusiast," with a wide-screen presentation of the Oscar-winning film; optional audio commentary by director Robert Zemeckis, the producers, and the screenwriters; the deleted nightmarish "Pig Head" sequence; fascinating production segments; and a viewing option that offers onscreen text revealing all of Roger Rabbit's mysteries. This is one of the year's best DVDs. To quote Roger, p-p-p-lease don't miss it.

This film is a true classic. Although it wasn't the first film to incorporate cartoons with live-action film, the superb acting and realism is what truly makes this film shine. Who Framed Roger Rabbit takes viewers back to the Golden Age and our childhood memories of Saturday cartoons. Despite the nostalgia, the humor is timeless and the acting is superb. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see a film with a decent plot and an even better delivery. I grew up watching this movie, therefore I expect I'll watch this one for many years to come. P.S. I thought I would give this film a review with decent grammar and correct spellings. The other reviews were just painful to look at.

Who framed roger rabbit is a great movie but if you have young children they should'nt watch it because it has some inapropete words and Jessicca Rabbit the way she looks also it has a part of Marvin Acme and Jessica Rabbit playing pattycake its a sexal scene so parents don't let kids watch this until they are a little older but still its a great movie Im 22 years old back then i was 3 but i seen it later on and i love it

So when i was 5 my mom found this on vhs at a garage sale and i had to of watched it at least once a week. When we got a dvd player this is one of the first movies i looked for. And then finally a couple years ago i found it and was ecstatic. The combination of cartoon and reality is just awesome and was definetly way ahead of its time. It is a one of a kind film that i think no one will ever come close to making any better. If you are a fan of disney or warner bros. or any other type of cartoon then get this dvd. It is great for any age.
