'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

Among the song selections on the Acme "Select-a-Tune" (the device, to which Eddie "sings", in order to make the weasels laugh themselves to death) are "Jolson Medley", "Merry-Go-Round Broke Down", "Broadway Selection", and "Mickey's Melody". See more »

For the 2003 Vista Series DVD release, the scene where Jessica and Eddie are thrown from the cab has been altered yet again. In this version of the scene, Jessica is actually entirely re-animated for several frames and falls much more gracefully, with her nether regions staying carefully hidden by her dress. See more »
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
