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.
A thriller largely lacking in substance (due to its sometimes weak script, et al.), but Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning give surprisingly good performances. I would never claim that it's a great movie, but it's still a highly enjoyable one.
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West continues theme of mice as immigrants trying to make it in America and the cats as the leaders who exploit their little opportunity. Due to poverty and overpopulation in the cities, immigrants emigrate west hoping for a better life yet still find exploitation. The theme of exploitation is balanced well with the notion that the immigrants were the backbone of American development as it expanded west. The immigrants were exploited, yet they continued labor in hopes of fortune that was rarely reached. The film also shows that you can be happy in times of trouble if you believe in yourself; a powerful ideal not to lose.
