'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

The second time Marvin Acme appears on-screen, there is a piece of paper in front of him on the table, presumably the will, that has disappeared by the third time he appears on-screen. Consistent with the ink stain on Eddie's shirt, the ink on the will returns at the same time. See more »

Several brief scenes were cut after the initial release:
The gorilla picking up Eddie by the lapels after the line "Who are you calling a chump, chimp!"
The beginning of Roger's reaction as the weasels cross the road to Eddie's office
A brief dialogue exchange between Eddie and Smartass while Roger is hiding in the sink
I say this film is a family film because that is what it is. Anyone in the family will like it. It pitches it's animated rabbit to the kids, and for the teens and adults, they can look for humor in other things. The plot is a complicated one (like most detective mysteries) that brings a drunken detective back to the detective game of cartoons. Sometimes funny, sometimes compassionate, always entertaining. With director Zemeckis bringing one of the best animated films in a film that is half live action/half animated. It is a landmark in visual effects and nothing like this will ever come around again. A+
