"It's 1947 Hollywood Eddie Valiant ... a down-on-his-luck detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar, Roger Rabbit. When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, who begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer"--Container.

Film Noir with cartoons; very high technique of merging humans into it. Especially when the only known one was the film with Fred Astire and another with Gene Kelly way back.

Old technique without the animation of current computers; skills both of actors and the creative photographers and director.
Story was film noir at the best.

Four 1/2 frames for wonderfulness on rating scale of must view

A fairly dark movie, great to watch with older kids. A great combination of live action and animation.

Great movie and blast from the past! Unfortunately, the disc was heavily damaged. Need replacement.

You've got to be in the mood for silly slap-stick, but there are some good sight gags that stay with you.

Set in Hollywood (circa 1947), and featuring an astoundingly delightful blend of dizzy, non-stop live-action, mixed generously with lots of dazzling animation, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" pays loving homage to those good, old days of classic cartoons when cartoon characters sometimes seemed to have more star-power and, yes, personality than did a lot of human actors in that golden era of yesteryear.

Yes. This incredibly innovative and vastly entertaining film is sure to please cartoon fans of all ages. The sheer number of familiar cartoon characters who make surprise, cameo appearances in this film is absolutely amazing.

With plenty of zany, fast-paced, comedy-action and an impressive attention to period detail, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (which was released in 1988) won Oscars for "Best Visual Effects" - "Best Editing" - And a "Special Achievement Award" went to Richard Williams for animation direction and creation of the cartoon characters.

Robert Zemeckis has created a real comedy gem. The mix of live action and animation is perfect for this film.

Jessica Rabbit: You don't know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.

Eddie Valiant: You don't know how hard it is being a man looking at a woman looking the way you do.

Jessica Rabbit: I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.
