4.0 out of 5 stars Looney fun July 19 2004
Format:DVD
I have given this film 4 stars because my six-year-old son loves it, and I assume that's the age group it's aimed at. Brendon Fraser plays a security guard at Warner Brothers Studios who gets sacked, at the same time as a bossy female executive sacks Daffy Duck. Fraser and Daffy join forces to find Fraser's dad (Timothy Dalton) a film star who plays a spy who is actually a spy in real life. He has been kidnapped by a mad scientist (Steve Martin) who wants to find the Blue Daimond, which has magical powers. Fraser and Daffy have to get to the Blue Diamond before Martin does. also Bugs Bunny is trying to get Daffy back to the studios. The mixture of live action and cartoon characters will amuse children, and if you are a big Looney Tunes fan you should love it (I'm more partial to Tom and Jerry myself). On the other hand, if your main interest int he film was in the presence of Timothy Dalton, you may notice that there's not a lot of him in it really. Never mind, the kids will love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is it folks! July 17 2004
Format:DVD
"Dynamite?" yells Jenna Elfman halfway through this film "Who has dynamite?". "Welcome to my world" comes Daffy Duck's reply. Yes indeed, welcome to the world of the Looney Tunes.
This film has been unfairly compared with Who Framed Roger Rabbit and, although not in that league at all, it has enough comedy and inventiveness to stand as a semi-classic in it's own right. At least it's not Space Jam.
I'm a firm believer that Bugs and co. can quite easily carry their own movie without the help of non-toons, but until then this'll do. For a Looney Tune fan such as myself there are plenty of character cameos and in-jokes to warrent several repeat viewings just to catch them all. The same goes for general movie fans (Roger Corman directs Warner's new Batman movie!?). Most, if not quite all, of the Looney Tune family get screen time with Daffy coming away with the lion's share. Other characters that are well served by the script are Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote and Marvin the Martian leaving the likes of Tweety, Sylvester, Taz and Elmer somewhat under-used - still, it's only a 90 minute movie. We also have a wonderful cameo from a suitably flat-looking Scooby and Shaggy - a joke against classic-versus-TV-animation for the keen-eyed!
A real high-light is the treatment that 'political correctness' gets in the script. We see Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzalez bemoaning P.C. attitudes (stutterers and racial stereotypes being somewhat taboo now) and, at one point, one of Sam's henchmen worrying that if he does indeed throw TNT out of the window "someone might get hurt". Sam's guns have been taken from him (although he's still allowed a cannon!) but at least Elmer Fudd has been allowed to keep his trusty rifle.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUGS, DAFFY AND STEVE MARTIN June 24 2004
Format:DVD
This movie directed by GREMLINS' Joe Dante falls short of being a classic film, but its mix of live action and animation is impressive, and it's like watching old Saturday morning cartoons. The plot takes second place to the shenanigans of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and a host of Warner Brothers cartoon superstars. The scene in which Elmer Fudd chases Bugs and daffy through several world-renowned paintings is brilliant. Brendan Fraser who usually looks delighted to be an actor seems disinterested in his role, although his handsome countenance is believable; Timothy Dalton tries hard to exude suave spy macho, but comes up short; Jenna Elfman is truly awful in her role as the executive who fires Daffy Duck; Steve Martin is hilarious in his prissy, prancy role as the head villain; Joan Cusack is marvelous in a small role as Mother; and we have cameos from Jeff Gordon, Michael Jordan and Matthew Lillard. There are some fun "in jokes", especially when Fraser talks about being a stuntman for Brendan Fraser on the Mummy movie. Sometimes movies like this shouldn't be criticized, but just enjoyed for the mindless but fun entertainment they provide. I enjoyed LOONEY TUNES BACK IN ACTION and I think anyone with a childhood sense of fun cartoons will too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Distracting fluff nonetheless... June 20 2004
By Colin
Format:DVD
This is a nice little flick starring the Looney Tunes and some cameos by Hollywood stars (and has-beens) that you'll forget minutes after you watch but it'll be some distracting entertainment for perhaps a rainy day.
The main idea is that Brendan Fraser stars as a security guard at the Warner Bros (he was once the stunt double for Brendan Fraser in The Mummy, apparently) who learns his spy father was on a mission to rescue a diamond that can turn people into monkeys before it falls into the hands of the head of Acme, played by...Steve Martin in a ton of make-up. He's trailed by Jenna Elfman as a studio executive, and Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, the Duck who recently was fired from show business.
There's some cute in-jokes, and references to such films as Robot Monster and Invason of the Body Snatchers, and a cute romp through some paintings at the Louvre (a green-screened Paris). The backgrounds are pretty, the jokes sometimes fly and sometimes don't, and the Looney Tunes are still hilarious. The plot...does it really matter? No, not really, but still this might be a good film if you're looking for something to pass the time with that won't tax your brain.

The movie is fun, but the actors ruin it. The interaction between the cartoon characters are funny and a trip down memory lane. The scene in the Louvre is funny. Read more
