Review

Our Score
This whizz-bang breakthrough in mixing live action with cartoon characters won a special achievement Oscar for animator Richard Williams. It follows the adventures of private eye Bob Hoskins, who ventures into Toontown - where the cartoon personalities live - to help animated superstar Roger Rabbit, who suspects his wife of adultery. Guest appearances by a wealth of cartoon favourites, including Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse and Betty Boop, adorn the tale as Hoskins's investigation leads to villain Christopher Lloyd, who's planning to cleanse Toontown of its animated inhabitants. Highlights include Hoskins's encounter with Roger's wife Jessica (voiced by Kathleen Turner), the slinkiest, most seductive vamp since Veronica Lake, and the fantastic all-action opening sequence. It was a creative and box-office success for co-executive producer Steven Spielberg and director Robert Zemeckis, and led the way for the likes of Space Jam and Toy Story.

Summary

Comedy mixing live action and animation, set in a 1940s Hollywood where cartoon characters are real. A seedy private eye with a hatred of `toons' reluctantly ends up helping to clear an animated rabbit accused of murdering his wife's human lover. Starring Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy and Stubby Kaye, with voices supplied by Mel Blanc, Kathleen Turner and Charles Fleischer.
