So much energy and enthusiasm in this film - it's like it never stops. But you can always watch it again to discover more about it. And the special thing about the movie is the fact that watching it again you'll be able to relive the jokes and gags again and again, which never get tired. And there's that double combo of having Fox and Lloyd in the same movie. You'll never get bored of watching THIS movie.
There is no end to the hilarity of this movie - what with its gags and jokes - "Aren't you Eddie Valiant, or did you change your name to Jack Daniels?". I found the live action and cartoon combo fascinating, and especially loved the piano duet with Donald and Daffy Duck. It is full of historical cultural influences (The Ink And Paint Club, for example) and is full to bursting with many different types of characters. My favourite character is Judge Doom, along with the star of the show, Roger Rabbit. A richly, entertaining movie.

OK, not all of the scenes work, but you have to give it to Spielberg. He really, really wants this movie to be funny. Like REALLY. The movie is literally dripping with ambition, so you have to give it credit for that.
Not a typical review here, but rather a comment about the running theme in the movie. This actually helped inspire me to begin running. The apparent freedom Gump achieved from his running was the most effective part of this theme. Kind of like the "runner's high," which really does exist. And if you like shrimp, pick up the Forest Gump Cookbook -- try the shrimp cake recipe.
Where is Steve Carrell when you need him.

This movie wasn't terrible nor was it as good as it could have been. If they would re-cast this film using Steve Carrell--I'm thinking of his Anchorman roll--this movie would be a real hit. imagine two hours of Steve saying "I love ball" and trying to explain to the flora and fauna how he has a party in his pants and everyone is invited. Good times..
