Storyline

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are up to their feuding ways again. Tired of playing second fiddle to Bugs, Daffy has decided to leave the Studio for good. He is aided by Warner Bros.' humor impaired Vice President of Comedy, Kate Houghton, who releases him from his contract and instructs WB security guard/aspiring stunt man DJ Drake to capture and "escort" Daffy off the studio lot. Suddenly a sidekick without a hero, the duck decides to ally himself with DJ, whether he likes it or not. Consequently, Daffy is on the scene when DJ discovers that his famous movie star father was Damian Drake, known for playing suave international spies onscreen, is actually a suave international spy in real life--and has been kidnapped by the evil insane nerdy, prancing villain known as Mr. Chairman of the equally nefarious Acme Corporation. It seems that Damian knows the whereabouts of the mysterious magical and powerful Blue Monkey Diamond, and the Chairman will do anything to get his hands on it! With ...

Not bad, not bad at all
11 December 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I went to see this movie at the cinema on the day that it came out. I was surprised to find that the cinema almost empty, and wondered why. I am still wondering.

I really liked this movie because it brings back the looney tunes that we all know and love. This movie doesn't have the greatest special effects and it is sometimes plainly obvious that the real life characters are acting with an empty space, but special effects and realism were never the point of a good cartoon. Like any good cartoon this movie doesn't really worry about technical issues or the plot, rather it focuses on the entertainment value. I feel that this movie really sticks to the looney tunes formula in that it has jokes designed to keep all ages amused. As a bond fan, I found Timothy Dalton to be the most likable character and I really liked the posters that were in the background everywhere (which were just re-written Bond posters). There were many references and gags to other movies which I found to be great.

This movie can get a little tiresome with the slapstick like comedy, but overall it's pretty good. I recommend it to anyone who wants to entertain their children while getting a laugh themselves. This movie is so much better than any of those movies that have annoying children actor in them so if you are like me and want an alternative I suggest this one.
