Looney Tunes Back In Action (DVD) (WS)

All pale in comparison to the earth-rending, bone-crushing, carrot-chomping, anvil-dropping, tail-feather-scorching, gleefully epic smackdown that is... Rabbit vs. Duck. Warner Bros. contract players Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are up to their feuding ways again in Looney Tunes: Back In Action.From the Warner Bros. back lot to Las Vegas, Paris and the jungles of wildest Africa, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, their looniest friends--and Warner Bros. security guard/aspiring stuntman DJ Drake (Brendan Fraser)--embark on a madcap quest for the Blue Monkey Diamond, which is also sought by an evil corporate overlord and by the dashing star of a spy-film franchise.

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.

A Kid's Review on August 13, 2004
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.

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam, Elmer Fudd, and almost every other classic WB animated character (including Speedy Gonzalez) make an appearance in LOONY TOONS: BACK IN ACTION. The movie combines action between the classic animated characters and live actors to tell a somewhat canned story that is as hip as it is corny.

In the movie Daffy Duck is fired by the studio heads after demanding to be paid equally as much as Bugs Bunny. Brendan Fraser plays DJ Drake, a lowly security guard/stuntman working at WB studios who dreams of becoming more involved in the business, but is fired on the same day after a major accident involving the famed Warner Brothers water tower. Drake's Dad (played by Timothy Dalton) is actually one of the studio's highest paid actors known for his espionage movies. But Daddy Drake is leading a double life because he's also one of the world's top spies. The evil Mr. Chairman (Steve Martin) steals a valuable blue diamond which he needs to turn all the people in the world into monkeys. Once DJ and Daffy find out what's going on, they set out on a world wide adventure to stop Mr. Chairman, get the blue diamond back, and rescue DJ's Dad. They're joined on their journey by Kate (Jenna Elfman), a WB VP, and Bugs Bunny who are sent to bring back Daffy because Bugs Bunny just isn't the same without his old friend and foil. Along the way the foursome meet up with all kinds of WB animated characters, actors making cameos, and some classic B-picture movie monsters from the WB's past.

LOONEY TOONS: BACK IN ACTION moves at a rate that's faster than most people can keep up with. The witty one-liners, hip references to pop culture, and allusions to WB and movie history are shot out at a pace faster than a pitching machine on hyperdrive.
