When Wile E. Coyote comes upon(well, it hits him in the face... how do *you* find reading material?) a book of magic(from Acme, of course), he uses it to try to finally get his hands on the Road Runner, replacing the rockets, dynamite and fake paths through mountains with flying brooms, transmogrification and directed telekinesis.

This is one of the new Looney Tunes shorts that came out with their live-action ventures, and it's featured on the DVD of Back in Action. While I will confess upfront that I'm not a fan, and have not watched many of these, this one was pretty funny, albeit it is not on the level of their classic efforts.

The slapstick makes fine use of the wizardry element, and has some good ideas. As usual, expectations are either subverted or openly pointed out, and the laws of physics take as much of a beating as a certain hungry canine. The pace is swift throughout, and the 7 minutes fly by like so many conjured up tools of sweeping. All of the comedy is appealing to both children and adults.

There is a lot of cartoon violence in this. I recommend this to fans of the characters. 7/10
