Editorial Reviews

Brendan Fraser, Jenna Elfman, Steve Martin. Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck have to team up to stop the ominous Acme Corporation from obtaining the rare and beautiful Blue Monkey Gem. A nonstop adventure combining live action and animation, with plenty of surprise cameos! 2003/color/92 min/PG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I hoped for June 15, 2005
Format:DVD
There are few crimes more reprehensible then the dumbing down of the Looney Tunes in a failed attempt to appeal to today's, presumably dumb, children. Fortunately, director Joe Dante, writer Larry Doyle, lead voice actor Joe Alaskey, and composers John Frizzell and Jerry Goldsmith have created a truly fine work that is able to stay true to the personalities and comedic sensibilities of the original characters.

Actually the credit goes to the entire cast and crew of Looney Tunes: Back in Action. These days, seeing a movie where Steve Martin is actually funny is enough of a gift from the Hollywood Heavens. But, I singled out Dante, Doyle, Alaskey, Frizzel, and Goldsmith for their outstanding efforts. Dante is a brilliant director. The success of this film hinged on his dedication to what made the 'toons classic to begin with: really great timing, and convincing character interaction. Larry Doyle made a name for himself on the Simpsons and this movie is evidence that he was one of the GOOD writers. Simply put, he understands and actually respects the subject matter. I can't say enough about the quality of Alaskey's voice work. He performs the film's two main animated characters, Bugs and Daffy, as well as Tweety, Sylvester, and Marvin the Martian. I don't care what the nitpickers have said, he emulates Blanc almost perfectly. But his skill lies not in mere impersonation, but a genuine understanding of the cadence, timing (again), and personality of the characters. Finally the pace is perfectly frenetic and that's due in large part to the score provided by Frizzel and Goldsmith. They've seamlessly blended the recognizable, classical pieces used in old Looney Tunes shorts with stings referencing Dante's past work, other films, and their own new material.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest movies ever! August 13, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This is one of the few animated movies that can compare with Pixar! For a Looney Tunes fan like me, it doesn't get much better than this.

BUGS BUNNY-- Bugs wasn't surprised much in this film, it looked as though he had the whole the thing planned. The only time he really was caught unexpected was when he was put in a suit in the spy car. Bugs singing: "VIVA LAS VEGAS" is hilarious.

DAFFY DUCK-- Great! Rather than trying to imitate Chuck Jones' Daffy like every other show with Daffy does (not that that's bad, I LOVE Chuck Jones) it appears rather like it was inspired by Bob Clampett.

D.J.-- Played by Brendan Fraiser, D.J. is quite likable. It's hilarious when D.J. talks about how he was in the mummy movies more than Brendan Fraiser.

KATE-- Rather than goofy, Kate is rather no-nonsense. But she's still funny.

THE EVIL LEADER OF ACME-- Steve Martin is hysterical on this, he's as nutty as humans come.

There are many other supporting characters, like: Elmer Fudd, Marvin the Martian, Tweety, Sylvester, Granny, The Tasmanian Devil, Wile E. Coyote, Foghorn Leghorn, The Warner Bros. and Yosemite Sam. And there are hundreds of cameos, like: Beaky the Buzzard, Pepe Le Pew, Ham, Ex, Porky, Speedy Gonzalas, Egghead, Sam Sheepdog, Ralph Wolf, Road Runner, Batman, an Instant Martian, Foghorn's Dog Arch-Enemy, the Russian Dog (on HARE RIBBIN') and Buddy! This beats Space Jam by a long-shot.

I just can't comprehend the fact that people would rather watch a movie as bad as Shrek instead of a great movie like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars They Did It! January 8, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazingly, "Looney Tunes - Back in Action" manages to capture the zany, "we'll-make-fun-of-ANYTHING" humor of the classic cartoons. It's got the wisecracks and the anarchy. There are setpieces (the chase through the Louvre is a classic), kidding of pc sensitivities (such as why Yosemite Sam's henchmen won't throw the dynamite out the window during a car chase through Las Vegas), a great jab at movie product placement (kudos to the company that let themselves be used for this!), jokes about classic horror films ("Them!" and "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" for two) and so on. The whole cast of toons is on hand, seamlessly combined with live actors (even the casting is a joke sometimes -- check out the Acme board of directors). Don't ask if the plot makes sense (it doesn't); just sit back and laugh.

"Looney Tunes: Back in Action" features two kind of actors: from animation world, ever beloved Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Tweety & Silvester, and many, many other familiar characters you might have seen somewhere like on Cartoon Network. Oh, and humans are first-rate, too: Brendan Fraser, (very lovely) Jenna Elfman, and Steve Martin with his nerdiest performance in this decade.
Like ground-breaking film "Roger Rubbit," the animation characters are living next to us, some of them working for Warner Brothers studio. Discontented Daffy is, as ever, playing a silly role for the super-star Bugs Bunny, whose ego is as big as some human in Hollywood. Then, things happen. Daffy is fired by Jenna Elfman's character (don't ask me why), and hits the road to Las Vegas with Brendan Fraser, whose daddy (Timothy Dalton, self-parodying his 007 image) is kidnapped by megalomaniac company owner Steve Martin.
The plot is non-existent (I tried to summerize it, but it only ends up with a very silly synopsis, as shown above). In short, it is like "Spy Kids" in which crazy things happen around the characters, animation and human alike.
The director is Joe Dante, which means the film is best enjoyed as spoof. In other words, the film depends more on the cameos and amusing references to other films in the past, than on the original gags themselves. In the Warner studio, you see they are shooting a Batman movie (with Batmobile, of course), but the film is directed by Roger Corman, king of B movies in the 60s. Now if you don't get it ... what can I do?
Or see the "Area 52" (not 51) section, in which you see countless references to the Sci-Fi films in the past. There, Robby the Robot is talking! Here, Derek of "Doctor Who" is walking!
