Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

These films are an amiable and entertaining attempt to re-create the brilliance of cartoons past. After the success of the more adult-oriented Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Disney and Steven Spielberg's Amblin' Entertainment jointly produced the three titles on this tape. Clearly intended as both a love letter to, and a rip-off of, various cartoon classics (including the Looney Tunes series, and Tex Avery's Droopy Dog shorts), THE BEST OF ROGER RABBIT conveys an infectious sense of fun. Adults will appreciate the craftsmanship that went into them, while kids will respond to their incredibly fast pace and the sight of Roger in a variety of imaginatively dangerous situations.

Unfortunately, watching the cartoons back-to-back only points up the fact that the filmmakers just remade the same plot three times. (Looney Tunes did thrive on familiarity, but they were never this familiar!) It should be noted that crafty Bugs Bunny would never have gotten himself into situations like these.
