The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
'Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her. But the stakes are quickly raised when Marvin Acme is found dead and Roger is the prime suspect. Groundbreaking interaction between the live and animated characters, and lots of references to classic animation.Written by

Francis Ford Coppola was considered to direct this film. See more »
A live-action model was used in the scene in the Ink and Paint club during Jessica's song parts of her were rotoscoped in order to cover the model up. Jessica interacts with Marvin Acme by pinching his cheeks and then taking his handkerchief out of his coat pocket and polishing his head with it. If you look closely, you will see Jessica's hands briefly grow to human proportions as she interacts with Acme. This occurs again when she interacts with Eddie later in the same scene. In fact, there is a tiny glitch in the animation of her hands as they go from rotoscope to animation after she shoves Eddie's hat into his face. Finally, as the camera closes in on Jessica and Eddie in the final moments of the song if you slow down the film speed, you will see Jessica's dress move ahead of her for a few frames to cover the performance model. Again Jessica's hands are rotoscoped as they pull on Eddie's tie. See more »

Some versions, including the television version shown on FOX and CBS, have an extra scene: After leaving Roger with Dolores, Eddie Valiant attempts to break into Jessica Rabbit's dressing room and encounters an angry Judge Doom and the Gorilla. Eddie is then kidnapped by the Toon Patrol weasels and taken into Toontown, where they give him a "Toon-a-roo" (paint a cartoon face over your real one, in this case a pig). Eddie goes home and, using turpentine and paint remover, washes the pig-head off in the shower. During this sequence, Jessica enters his apartment (and the bathroom) and begins a conversation with him, the second part of which (after Eddie is partially dressed) is in the theatrical cut of the film. The theatrical cut tries to cover-up the missing footage by placing a toilet flush on the soundtrack as Eddie exits his bathroom. This deleted scene is included as a special feature on the DVD.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of the zaniest and smartest movies to come out in a long time..Directed by Robert Zemeckis who later did Forrest Gump and Castaway among others, it stars Bob Hoskins as a washed up private eye in the 50s who gets dragged into a murder investigation in Toonland to help unravel a mystery and prove the innocence of a toon Roger Rabbit.
One of the real treats of the movie is Kathleen Turner who does the voice of Jessica Rabbit..She is a perfect choice with that sexy sultry voice. The movie is great fun for the whole family..there is a little innuendo but like Jessica says.."I'm not bad..I'm just drawn that way"
A real treat! Holds the record for most credits at the end of a movie (937!) On a scale of one to ten... 9
