view all

Technically marvelous, cinematically hilarious, eye-popping combination of cartoon and live action create a Hollywood of the 1940s where cartoon characters are real and a repressed minority working in films. A 'toon-hating detective is hired to uncover the unfaithful wife of 2-D star Roger, and instead uncovers a conspiracy to wipe out all 'toons. Special appearances by many cartoon characters from the past. Coproduced by Touchstone (Disney) and Amblin (Spielberg). Adapted from "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?" by Gary K. Wolf.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

I watched this movie all the time when I was little. It was one of my favorite movies. The other day, I watched this movie and I realized that there are a lot of sexual jokes, especially between cartoon characters and normal characters. I think having cartoons with real people is kind of a cool thing for movies, even though it looks kind of weird. It's different than the average movie so I think people should see it. Roger Rabbit is a toon, and is married to a pretty toon named Jessica. Everyone likes her, and she and Roger are pretty much set up. An evil character tries to destroy Toon Town. The detective that hates toons has to figure out everything that is going on. His brother was killed by a toon so he doesn't want to go to Toon Town, but he has to. Of course this movie has a happy ending. This is a fun movie for everyone.
