Reasonable update on the old formula
7 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Bugs Bunny discovers that a 100 screen cinema has been build on top of his rabbit hole, he pops up to watch a film. However usher Elmer Fudd notices that he didn't buy a ticket and tries to eject him. A chase kicks off that is only disturbed when Daffy Duck, sneaking in himself, gets involved.

When I saw this was a modern version of the old cartoons I braced myself to be assaulted by some very poor stuff, however I was pleased to find that, on the whole, this was quite enjoyable. The plot basically allows for one chase sequence where Bugs attempts to outwit Elmer in the good old style that he does. The addition of Daffy Duck was OK but totally unnecessary in my opinion and I spent most of the cartoon wondering why he had been added other than just getting another character in there.

The gags are OK but there are few moments where the film becomes very modern that just don't work. Specifically there is an awful `scratch' moment where the three dance to the scratching music, but more generally I was a little put off by the look and actions of the modern Bugs - he didn't totally fit with the 50's character I love.

Despite this it is still a good cartoon. It is unfair to compare it with the classics but it is impossible not to do so. If you gave me the choice between this modern cartoon and a good old one, I would always plump for the old one, but as it is, this is quite funny and enjoyable to watch.
