Storyline

35 years after The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show's cancellation, our two TV heroes have been living off the finances of their reruns on TV. To make matters worse, Rocky has lost his ability to fly, and the trees in Frostbite Falls have all been cut down. Meanwhile, over in Pottsylvania, home of Rocky and Bullwinkle's arch enemies Fearless Leader, Boris, and Natasha, the Iron Curtain has fallen, leading the villains to leave Pottsylvania, and dig through a tunnel all the way to the TV of a Hollywood Producer, Minnie Mogul. She signs a contract, giving her the rights to produce the Rocky and Bullwinkle Movie, and accidentally pulls the three villains out of the TV, turning them into humans! Now, they have an evil plan to hypnotize America, using RBTV (Really Bad TeleVision), making everyone's mind mush, so he can go on to the TV, and get everyone to vote him President of the USA! However, new FBI Agent Karen Sympathy has an assignment--get the only ones who could ever defeat the villains- ... Written by Anthony M

Trivia

This film was originally in pre-production in the early 1990s, with Danny DeVito and Meryl Streep set to play Boris and Natasha. Legal problems with copyrights prevented the film being made until several years later. See more »

Goofs

When our three heroes are escaping in an old biplane there is a brief cut to show the altimeter winding down because they are overweight. At the top of the altimeter it shows the units as KM (Kilometers) which is ONLY used in the former Soviet Union. The rest of the world uses Feet so you would never see such an instrument in an American aircraft flying in America. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Moose and Squirrel Still Have the Magic
3 July 2000 | by (washington, dc) – See all my reviews

I was really surprised at how much I liked this movie. R&B are brought magically to life in the real world, and still have the same magic in their camraderie. People complained that the puns were stupid and that the humor was aimed at adults. Hello? That's exactly what made the original cartoon so great.

R&B's observations on contemporary society are hilarious. The film also pokes fun at politicians, the legal system, and our addiction to TV, with a riotous sendup of "Cops".

The film is quite satisfying whenever R&B are onscreen. When it's just the human actors, things get a little dull. DeNiro, Alexander and Russo all are decent, but these performances would be criticized no matter who was playing them, with the possible exception of Jim Carrey. The best human performer is Piper Pirabo, a total hottie. She has been criticized for a bad performance, but I thought she did a great job.

It's not Oscar material, it won't gross $100 million, and it's not deep social commentary, but it sure is fun. Anybody with a sense of humor would be hard-pressed not to smile and feel good on the inside after seeing this. I just hope they make a sequel. Rocky & Bullwinkle forever!!!!
