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 ...

Trivia

The Daleks in this film appear before the new series of Doctor Who began, and as such rather than being borrowed from the BBC seem to have been constructed specially for the movie, as their dimensions are rather unusual. They mostly resemble movie Daleks (from Dr. Who and the Daleks, 1965) with large smooth horseshoe-shaped fenders and jagged shoulder rings, but they have paint jobs that resemble original TV series Daleks, dome light designs never seen before or since, skirts that are symmetrically conical (Dalek skirts conventionally lean towards the back), and the gun and sucker arms are disproportionately small with no gun detail whatsoever, merely a smooth hollow tube.

Goofs

DJ arrives at his home on a motorcycle, and he leaves it in his father's driveway. As he and Daffy are leaving the house in the gremlin, there is nothing in the driveway, and the motorcycle can be seen in the garage. See more »

Bloody good fun
21 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Daffy Duck finally has enough of playing second fiddle to Bugs Bunny, he quits the Hollywood studio and teams up with Bobby Delmont (Brendan Fraser) an ex-stuntman; together they go on a mission to rescue Damian Drake (Timothy Dalton) a spy who has been captured by the evil chairman of the Acne corporation (Steve Martin)

With strong comic performances from Brendan Fraser, Steve Martin and Jenna Elfman, plus everyone's favourite Looney Tunes, this film is a good laugh for the whole family, and the blend between cartoon and real life is the best i have seen.

7/10
