This is a terrific family comedy! Robert DeNiro,Rene Russo,and Jason Alexander were perfect playing Fearless Leader,And Boris and Natasha. Even newcomer Piper Perbalo did a great job playing FBI agent Karen Sympathy. Yes,people critizised this movie,but who cares? DON'T BELIVE THEM! Lots of fun and tons of puns is what ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE was and is all about. This is a GREAT family treat.

I enjoyed the television cartoon series, so I was excited about seeing The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle on the big screen, and this movie lived up to its predecessor. First, the movie's set-up is interesting. Instead of going all live-action like other cartoon-to big-screen endeavors such as George of the Jungle, "our heroes" are visitors from the cartoon world into the real world. (Each world is aware of the existence of the other.) Everyone involved in this movie seemed to be having a great time. The movie is well cast; Jason Alexander and Renee Russo look just like the cartoon Boris and Natasha and play them with zest. It was also a treat to hear June Foray from the television series reprise her role as the voice of Rocky. (Also watch for several cameo appearances.) Before attending the movie, I read reviews that said it was too long, but I sat through the entire movie without checking the time once. Yes, the plot was silly, and the movie was filled with bad puns, but this is ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE-- that's what the show was always about. The mistake would have been if the movie had attempted to be more serious or "grown-up" than the cartoon. (Although I expect that the movie will go over much better with adults than with children who will not have had the experience of watching the original show.) This film was magical and charming, and I can't wait to see it again. I cannot recommend this movie highly enough.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie. I mean, I like Rocky and Bullwinkle, but it seemed like stretching out the short cartoon to fill a whole film was a potentionally bad idea. But it turns out they managed to make something worthwhile.

It's not a laugh riot. But then again, neither was the original cartoon. What it has going for it is a lot of corny humor, a ridiculous plot, and, of course, Robert Deniro's dead on impersonation of Fearless Leader. Really, it's kind of scary how well he does it. And the entire movie could've been terrible and it still would've been worth it to watch DeNiro spoof his "Taxi Driver" role.

The movie's humor comes from its dialogue, its strange characters, its patently absurd plot twists, and of course, the trademark breaking of the fourth wall. There's even some intelligence behind this silliness, though most won't get past the puns to notice it.

Look, I liked it. I can't say much more than that. It's amusing and the animation is really quite amazing considering how bland the original was. And it's got a lot of cameos, too. Worth seeing.

given the success (critically as well as commercially) of the recent Peabody & Sherman film, it's difficult for us fans NOT to reflect on the series from whence it came, to say nothing of the three previous films to spring from the same source. sadly, rumor and juggernaut have kept them from achieving the same accolades, and the uninitiated are bound to get the impression that these worthy companion pieces are, well, unworthy.
the one that's taken the most severe beating is easily the turn-of-the-century showcase for the series' flagship characters. most obviously, there's the less than stellar track record of cinematic revivals of tv series. movies translating cartoons to live action aren't overly renown, either. for another thing, comedy in general gets only token respect. oh yes, and most infamously, Robert DeNiro dared to play as far against type as he could possibly get (in terms of both character and vehicle.) so there was plenty of ammunition for the sourpusses of this world to make the film sound like some sort of medieval torture device.
(well, as per a common them in my reviews, it wouldn't be the first movie "common knowledge" basically slandered.)
in point of fact, it's hard to imagine any other way to approach the project. this film fully understands and sincerely appreciates the spirit of it's source material. (which, incidentally, is still the single greatest cartoon series in television history.) the plot is as close to genius as this sort of thing gets: our "stalwart moose" and "plucky squirrel" heroes bemoan their apparent redundancy in a world that appears to of forgotten them since cancellation decades ago...until summoned to Real Life by a perky but dedicated FBI agent.

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000) Hokey smokes! Moose and Squirrel are on video! Jay Ward's beloved cartoon characters become the latest television characters to make the Big Screen transition, having languished in reruns since their prime time series was cancelled in the mid 1960's.
Through a contrived plot device (we know it's contrived because the familiar voice of the narrator tells us it is) those dastardly villains Boris, Natasha, and Fearless Leader have become live action humans and are plotting to take over America. But thankfully a wise FBI agent (Randy Quaid) sends one of his agents (Piper Perabo) to retrieve Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose from their quiet life in reruns in Frostbite Falls, and the animated stars are soon interacting with the real world like the Toons in Roger Rabbit.
This is a loving tribute to the television show, with an absolutely silly sense of humor throwing jokes of every kind in every direction. Everything works wonderfully, from the voices of original Rocky June Foray and new Bullwinkle Keith Scott to the visual effects to the performances of the human stars and the celebrity cameos that pop up every few minutes. Special mention must be made of the bad guys. Jason Alexander and Rene Russo are simply terrific as Boris and Natasha, and Robert DeNiro seems to be having the time of his life as Fearless Leader. Also, kudos to Piper Perabo, at the time a screen newcomer who's just too cute for words as FBI Agent Karen Sympathy.
This is a fantastic family film, with enough to offer the adults as well as the kids. I give this one a high recommendation--load the kids up and get `em out to the theater for this one!
