The TV show was fast, sharp, and funny, but the movie is slow, dull, and pointless. Fans may have a hard time reconciling the original cartoon characters with these pale carbons: Rocky, formerly the brains of the outfit, is now a forlorn wimp, and Bullwinkle, who used to fire off hilarious puns anytime and anywhere, now offers a few tired one-liners as tedious live-action characters monopolize the footage (the only bright spot is Robert DeNiro's Fearless Leader). This effort would almost certainly have worked better as a 100% animated feature. If you don't know the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons you might get a few laughs out of this, but you'll wonder how the show ever got such a following. Diehard fans of "moose and squirrel" will be disappointed. Sadly, Bill Scott (the original voice of Bullwinkle and co-creator of the TV show) does not get any screen credit at all.

Robert de Niro looks different in this movie, you will never recognise him. For me, Rocky and Bullwinkle are the funniest cartoon characters ever. This is the first time I saw Piper Perabo in a movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Are you talking to me?? April 27 2003
Rocky and Bullwinkle are on thier way to New York City to stop Fearless Leader (Robert DeNiro), Boris (Jason Alexander) and Natisa (Rene Russo) from turning all of American into vegetables with RBTV! Just usual, Bullwinkle has all the great lines. This movie is filled with comedy, adventure and...more comedy!

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so..but enjoyable April 23 2003
Jason Alexander stars as Boris Badenov, Robert DeNiro is Fearless Leader & Rene Russo is Natasha Fatale who somehow get into the real world & try to brainwash everyone in the world via "RBTV" (Really Bad TV) and have everyone vote for Fearless Leader as absolute ruler. Only Rocky & Bullwinkle can stop them...but how? Watch & find out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly an insult to a great legacy Nov. 12 2002
I think the animators spent so much time bringing Rocky and Bullwinkle to life in 3D, that they forgot to write anything remotely ressembling a script. Despite a great cast of DeNiro, Alexander, and Russo plus a fairly decent plot, this film fails on almost every level. While the actors try their best to deliver awful lines, most scenes are ruined by the poor blonde protagonist who does not belong in the movie at all. I would go so far as to say that it wasn't her fault; it was a bad character. They should have stopped attempting to build a moral and backstory into the movie and focused more on the comedy. The amazing jokes of the original series have all but disappeared in the transition.
It is easy to see why this was a huge flop at the theatres. Kids today barely know the great moose and squirrel so the director wasted too much time explaining to the younger generation, thus ruining the flow. Parents, on the other hand, will be continually annoyed by the randomly inserted FBI agent who has no place in the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars A complete misfire. Oct. 25 2002
I for one thought that this movie was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. One of the most tragic injustices to a classic cartoon series, the plot is so poorly planned out I wonder why they even bother to make this movie. Sure there is some cuteness to the movie but everything else about it is ridiculous. Even the humor that is spotty here & there isn't enough to save this rubbish.
I hardly remember anything from this movie anymore and this is coming from someone who can remember almost every line of several all-time favorites like Robin Hood(Disney version) & Great Mouse Detective. That's generally how misconcieved the plot of this movie is. Forgettable. All this movie is is just a hodgepodge mess.
There isn't much of anything that this movie offers. Little humor, just plain boredom is what results in wasting 90 minutes watching this movie. The crooks are ridiculously acted and unintelligently portrayed in the movie especially the woman crook. I barely managed to stay in the theatre during the whole time as I was getting ready to head out the door.
There are far, FAR superior adaptations of cartoons such as The X-Men & Spider-Man. These two are a million times better than this. By far one of the worst movies I've seen in the past few years. >:(

Not a movie to be taken seriously... if you can just enjoy it for what it is it's great. I grew up on Rocky & Bullwinkle and love the "twist", not to mention seeing Robert DeNiro as Mr. Big !!

That may not be an actual proverb, but it sums up what was wrong with this production. While Jay Ward's classic (surprisingly one season only) show is remembered for its innovative blending of the political and the satirical in the guise of a cartoon, this film will simply be remembered as the one that Robert De Niro SHOULDN'T have made.
Thankfully, June Foray, the original voice of both "Rocky" and "Natasha", is on hand. That is more a tribute to her talent than it is the worth of the film. Jason Alexander is No Paul Frees ("Boris" in the series).
Keith Scott is quite good as "Bullwinkle" (initially done by Bill Scott) but his turn as the "narrator" falls short. William Conrad (AKA radio's "Matt Dillon" and television's "Cannon) provided the original's "bite."
All in all, it may have looked good on paper...
