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.Read more ›
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 morePublished on June 25 2004 by chicoer2003
