A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Meant to entertain, not educate. Introduces Paris.
Believe in yourself. Determination gets the job done.
Positive Role Models
Bugs defends and teams up with Lola Bunny; they're persistent, resourceful, and brave. Villains are comic, all seeking a magical perfume to attain power. Female characters have always been in short supply for Looney Tunes; giving Lola Bunny a central role is welcome, even if she can't help being a damsel in distress at times.
Violence & Scariness
Multiple sequences of cartoon mayhem: explosions, falls, whacks on the head, weapons fired, captures, narrow escapes, police chases, wild rides, and characters smashed, pummeled, and rolled over. All silly and exaggerated; no injuries.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Looney Tunes: Rabbit Run is a full-length, animated feature made by the team that produced The Looney Tunes Show for television in 2011 to 2014. With only one story, as opposed to the many episodic Bugs Bunny compilation DVDs that are out there, this movie finds Bugs engaged in an adventure with Lola Bunny, a female character first introduced in 1996's Space Jam. The characters, including a profusion of other Looney Tunes long-lived creations -- Foghorn Leghorn, Daffy Duck, Marvin the Martian, Elmer Fudd, and more -- battle each other all the way to Paris in hopes of taking ownership of a single flower's essence, with much at stake. Plenty of cartoon action sees the characters getting squashed, falling from great heights, being fired upon with an array of blasting weapons, brawling, and even jumping out of a plane. It's all comic in nature with no casualties. For kids who understand real vs. pretend violence, it's simply cartoon mayhem as usual. Humor is an important part of this tale; even the bad guys are funny and exhibit their special quirkiness. Die-hard Looney Tunes fans, accustomed to the wit and wisdom, inventive animation, and satire found in the earlier Warner Bros. cartoons by Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, and others may be disappointed, but this film still should entertain today's kids, especially those familiar with the latest TV program.

Is It Any Good?
Often funny with a decent story and lots of the Looney Tunes gang on board, this full-length movie with a 21st-century sensibility is fun for kids; however, Looney Tunes traditionalists beware. Based on TV series The Looney Tunes Show, in terms of animation, pace, music, and humor this film doesn't match up with the iconic, often culturally sophisticated cartoons of Bugs Bunny and company's long movie history. Plus, continuity from the old to the new is lacking (for example, Bugs appears to meet Daffy Duck for the first time here). On its own, though, there's enough for kids to like, with plenty of "slam-bam" cartoon action and some clever moments -- especially when Daffy or Mac and Tosh Gophers are in the house. This is an entertaining choice for kids who are comfortable with cartoon jeopardy and know the difference between real and cartoon violence.
