Awesome: Who Framed Roger Rabbit
  • Eddie Valiant killing the weasels by doing nothing but act like a Toon-that is, doing silly dances, singing, and abusing himself. Hell, the entire climax probably counts as a CMoA.
  • Eddie tricking Roger into drinking alcohol (making him scream hard enough to repel Doom), battling shortly the weasels, and catching Roger right before he falls in the dip.
  • The chase between Benny the cab, the cops and the Toon patrol.
  • Just before he heads into Toontown, Eddie - an admitted heavy drinker - pulls out his bottle, looks at it for a moment, and then pours the remaining alcohol out and into the street.
  • The fact that Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny evidently go parachuting together in their spare time.
  • Even if it didn't work out, Roger barging into the Acme warehouse with a gun to try and save Eddie and Jessica from Doom's clutches is pretty impressive.
  • Doom gets one of his own:
    Doom: The rabbit says one way or another he and his wife gonna be happy. Is that true?
    Eddie: Pal, what do I look like? A stenographer?
    Lt. Santino: Shut your yap, Eddie. The man's a judge.
    Doom: That's alright, Lieutenant. From the smell of him, I'd say it was the booze talking.
    (Eddie glares at him)
    • Eddie manages to get back at him good though with the good ol handbuzzer.
  • Even if this is meta, Bob Hoskins deserves some major props for his phenominal acting. He's TALKING TO AIR for about 95% of the time, but you honestly believe that the cartoons are there with him.
  • Judge Doom deserves a mention too. He is probably the only villian who can pull off a high pitched squeaky voice and make it sound legitimately threatening.
  • If you know anything about the legal nightmare of Disney and WB allowing their characters to be used in the film, it's a clear miracle that the movie was made at all. In particular, the two companies' properties had to share exactly the same amount of screentime, which is so smoothly integrated that you'd never notice unless you're looking for it.
