Sur Blu-rayMC pour la toute première fois, cette édition de Qui veut la peau de Roger Rabbit avec nouvelle gravure numérique bondit pratiquement de l’écran avec une image éclatante, un son riche et… ses courbes audacieuses. Nous sommes en 1947 à Hollywood. Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), un privé qui ne roule pas sur l’or, est embauché pour faire la preuve que Marvin Acme, roi des farces et attrapes et propriétaire de Toontown, entretient une liaison avec l’envoûtante Jessica Rabbit, l’épouse de la superstar des studios d’animation Maroon, Roger Rabbit. Quand Acme est retrouvé mort, tout semble accuser Roger, qui supplie Valiant de surmonter sa haine des personnages animés et de l’aider à démasquer le vrai coupable. Comprenant des heures de suppléments – dont trois courts métrages de Roger Rabbit avec restauration numérique –, ce film gagnant de plusieurs OscarMD (Meilleur montage, Meilleur montage des effets sonores, Meilleurs effets visuels, Prix spécial de réalisation en animation, 1988) est absolument magique sur Blu-ray haute définition.
This zany, eye-popping, knee-slapping landmark in combining animation with live-action ingeniously makes that uneasy combination itself (and the history of Hollywood) its subject. Who Framed Roger Rabbit is based on classic L.A. private-eye movies (and, specifically, Chinatown), with detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) investigating a case involving adultery, blackmail, murder, and a fiendish plot to replace Los Angeles's once-famous Red Car public transportation system with the automobiles and freeways that would later make it the nation's smog capital. Of course, his sleuthing takes him back to the place he dreads: Toontown, the ghetto for cartoons that abuts Hollywood and that was the site of a tragic incident in Eddie's past. In addition to intermingling cartoon characters with live actors and locations, Roger Rabbit also brings together the greatest array of cartoon stars in the history of motion pictures, from a variety of studios (Disney, Warner Bros., MGM, Fleischer, Universal, and elsewhere): Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Woody Woodpecker, Droopy Dog, and more! And, of course, there's Maroon Cartoon's greatest star, Roger Rabbit (voice by Charles Fleischer), who suspects his ultracurvaceous wife, Jessica Rabbit (voice by Kathleen Turner: "I'm not bad; I'm just drawn that way"), of infidelity. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Contact), not since the early Looney Tunes' "You Oughtta Be in Pictures" has there been anything like Roger Rabbit. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

It is a gem.
Before buying this DVD, note that it is not a completely faithful reproduction of the original theatrical release. It has been censored (by Disney). The censorship involves animation in two separate scenes. Two scenes, both involving Jessica Rabbit.
If you are a movie purist, or simply object to censorship of material that was widely available on the big screen more than a decade ago, then this disc might not be right for you.
However, the movie is a treat even without those missing frames of animation. And you might not consider censorship a big deal.
But it is nice to know what you are getting before you commit to the purchase.
I bough it for the blu-ray but i expected a remastered movie on the dvd as well, not a recycled disk from the second dvd edition. If you already have the second edition dvd, pass this one, nothing new, nothing better, nothing more.
I appreciate getting FULL and WIDE screen in one package. They should have given all of the deleted scenes in this, and brought back the original frames and full scenes, like customers expect. It's been like this since the VHS release...
Extras should not have been crammed onto one disc.
Anyway, beyond that, this is a Great DVD with fine extras. You may want to wait for a better edition with all deleted scenes...
The original DVD release of this movie was not anamorphic and although that problem has been rectified on this two disc special edition, there's a host of other problems that seem new to this incarnation on DVD. For starters, the source elements for the duped material seem worn. Screen flutter is excessive where cartoons and humans interact. There are also a few cases where either the human element or the cartoon characters appear slightly out of focus. Digital grain is, at times, excessive, especially in the opening cartoon sequence. Fine details occasionally shimmer. Colors are well balanced but there are a few inconsistancies detected throughout. For example, watch how Roger's red pants change to orange, then back to red, in the same sequence. Also, "the Red Car" street cars register more orange than red. All of these problems, I suspect, are the result of cramming too much info on one disc. Even those this is a two disc set, Disney/Touchstone has reserved the first disc for a full frame copy of the movie and an audio commentary. The rest of the features, including several very well produced documentaries, deleted scenes, trailers and other extras, have all been crammed onto disc #2, the widescreen version and as a result image quality suffers throughout. The sound is a 5.1 mix that seems identical to the previously issued disc. It's strident and shrill at times and very well balanced at others. With all the hype surrounding this re-issue, more should have been expected and delivered from the folks over at Disney.
-The packaging is very nice. Typical "Vista Series" Quality.
-The extras are first rate. Something for everyone.
-3 short Roger Rabbit films (that I never knew existed) are amazing.
-Sound Quality is excellent. Maybe a notch bellow LOTR.
-The menu is incredible. Spend 5 minutes just watching that. Good stuff.
-Keep your eyes open. This is the who's-who of Pre-50s cartoons.
-The animation is of a rare quality. It's style and quality rivals the High tech animation of today with a very soft feal to it.
-Parents beware: The "A", "D" and "H" words make appearances.
-Full of sexual inuendo. Might go over your kid's head... ...might not.
-You could spend hours playing with the special features and watching the menu do it's "tricks".
-This is the film that resurrected animated features.
-My 4 year old daughter started walking like Jessica Rabbit. I'm not sure I liked that....
This is a can't miss buy. You may need to use your judgement as far as the youngins' are concerned. Get it while the price is down!
The publicity material claims this is a restored version, but alas the infamous frames (about 76 minutes into the film) of a panty-less Jessica Rabbit remain excised. I could find no Disney spokesperson who would comment on this silly censorship. Sorry, you'll have to see the original VHS tape or the laser disc if you want to be titillated by Jessica's cartoon crotch. Recommended.
