'Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her.

Groundbreaking interaction between the live and animated characters, and lots of references to classic animation. Written by

Since the movie was being made by Disney (Touchstone Pictures), Warner Brothers would only allow the use of their biggest toon stars, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, if they got an equal amount of screentime as Disney's biggest stars, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Because of this, both sets of characters are always together in frame when on the screen. See more »

I'm a fan of both cartoons and film noir movies, and so Who Framed Roger
Rabbit was a great experience to me. Set in the 1940's, in a shadowy
atmosphere reminiscent of Bogart classics such as The Maltese Falcon, the
movie blends in cartoon characters and live actors almost seamlessly. For
me, one of the most interesting aspects of the movie was seeing Disney and
Warner Bros cartoon characters in the same scenes - for the first time in
film history, I believe. Who could forget the piano duel of Donald and
Daffy? The live actors were a bit theatrical and over-dramatic at times,
not to an extent that would have made the film unbearable or bad. The
cartoon characters saved a lot, too.
Fast-paced, entertaining film that can be viewed by anyone. I liked it very
