In the end credits, Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris, Natasha, and Fearless Leader, in their original animated designs against a black background, fight for control of the credits and alternatively display each of the major credits as if they are turning a revolving wall panel with the credits printed on it. Then the end credits begin to change on their own while the characters chase each other in varying combinations. Then the minor end credits begin to scroll up normally with one last display of Rocky and Bullwinkle seated and waving to the audience. See more »
Warning: If You Take This Movie Seriously, The Jokes Will Go Right Over Your Head!!!
It looked like everyone (Rene Russo, Jason Alexander, Robert De Niro, Piper Perabo, and numerous cameo appearances) had a great time making the movie. They also knew that this movie should not be takes seriously. The movie captured the essence of the "Rocky and Bullwinkle" TV series: the pratfalls, the bad puns, etc. and, somehow, was able to maintain the funny pace for 88 minutes.
I could waste my time watching movies with more ambition or seriousness but be very disappointed in what it tried to do. I think "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" is a fun, unpretentious comedy that made me smile at the end and that's a good thing.
