Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Shave and a haircut… what a hit! I love this film, although Roger was little more funny and a lot less annoying when I was younger watching this. Still, Bob Hoskins is great as Eddie Valiant, the Private Eye. I love how this movie mixes real people and cartoons in a film noir sort of environment. A toon is accused of murder and it’s the P.I. with a past that is their only chance of redemption. Kathleen Turner’s smoky sexy voice goes perfectly with Jessica Rabbit’s animation and Christopher Lloyd is awesome as the scary judge who likes to make toons take a dip into death. Like I said, Roger gets a little grating with his overly zany voice and actions but I will give Charles Fleischer credit for really going for it on this character. This movie will always be a classic to me, where humans and cartoons can live amongst each other in (mostly) harmony.

85/100
