“That’s it, Doom. Give me another excuse to pump you full of lead. So you thought you could get away with it, didn’t you? Ha! We toons may act idiotic, but we’re not stupid. We demand justice. Why, the real meaning of the word probably hits you like a ton of bricks,” Roger Rabbit said.
Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg worked together on this animation/live action movie.
I found the film groundbreaking for the time. It was ahead of the technology available at the time and made the movie actually visually stunning. There are pros and cons to it, i’d like to say i’m pro for it. Unfortunately I didn’t feel the warm fuzzies when I saw this picture. The only highlight was seeing Bob Hoskins, and Christopher Lloyd.
The score was composed by Alan Silvestri.
Here is the basic plot…Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) gets hired by cartoon producer R.K. Maroon (Alan Tilvern) to investigate an adultery scandal involving Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner), the sultry wife of Maroon’s biggest star, Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer). But when Marvin Acme (Stubby Kaye), Jessica’s alleged paramour and the owner of Toontown, is found murdered, the villainous Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) vows to catch and destroy Roger.
You can find the soundtrack on Amazon.
