This film is one of a kind. The story is intriguing, its characters are well-developed, and it's animation is the best I've seen in originally animated films yet, which makes since considering how much it costed.
Let's start at the plot. So it opens up like a classic slapstick cartoon. Roger Rabbit is watching Baby Herman, and hilarity ensues. But Roger accidentally messes up, and everything stops, revealing that toons
exist in the same universe.
Eddie Valiant is hired to investigate Roger's wife Jessica, who is rumored to be having an affair with Marvin Acme. After showing Roger pictures of her playing patty-cake (quite literally) with acme, he grows extremely upset and storms out, leaving a Roger shaped whole in the wall. The next day, Acme is found dead, and Roger is the number one suspect.
The story is well-written, and the plot was crisp. Now let's review the characters:
Eddie Valiant: A human detective with a prejudice against toons, who ends up working with Roger, who's innocent of the crime.
Roger Rabbit: A cartoon rabbit who lives by the Rule Of Funny
, and has been framed for a crime he didn't commit.
Judge Doom: The mysterious antagonist who's out to get Roger, and has created a concoction that can murder toons.
Jessica Rabbit: The highly attractive Femme Fatal
who was caught playing patty-cake with Marvin Acme, and could be another contender in the crime.
I recommend this truly amazing movie that will have you guessing until the end. Who framed Roger Rabbit?
