Technically marvelous, cinematically hilarious, eye-popping combination of cartoon and live action create a Hollywood of the 1940s where cartoon characters are real and a repressed minority working in films. A 'toon-hating detective is hired to uncover the unfaithful wife of 2-D star Roger, and instead uncovers a conspiracy to wipe out all 'toons. Special appearances by many cartoon characters from the past. Coproduced by Touchstone (Disney) and Amblin (Spielberg). Adapted from "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?" by Gary K. Wolf.
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.
