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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than the Theatrical Release March 14, 2004
Format:DVD
The Looney Tunes Back in Action widescreen DVD is definitely better than when it was playing in theaters. It's easier to enjoy it when you don't have dozens of people laughing at funny moments in the film. The special features are pretty well made. If you need a few good laughs, curl up on your couch with your family or with a nice big bag of peanut m&m's and watch Looney Tunes Back in Action. I was amazed to find out that Brendan Fraser, one of the stars, made some of the voices of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously Fantastic March 8, 2004
Format:DVD
I have heard a lot of reviews criticize this movie because it's plotline is ridiculous, or at least count this as a downside to the movie. These reviews are missing the point. Of course the movie is ridiculous: it's Looney Tunes. Yes, the Chairman's plot to use the Blue Monkey diamond is silly and unrealistic: it is supposed to be!If the Looney Tunes are going to save the world, they should save it from something silly. You want serious and deadly, go watch Batman. Moreover, the movie is extremely accurate with the personalities and personal styles of each of the cartoon characters as they have been portrayed in the original cartoons. All of this is not to even mention the multiple movie references and commentary that this movie dishes out. As a matter of fact, "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" is the only movie that I have ever seen that actually makes fun of it's own product placemnt. All in all, this is a movie that is remarkably funny and remarkably true to the spirit of the original "Looney Tunes" cartoons.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Termite Terrace" with unlimited budget? February 16, 2004
By KC
Format:DVD
What might have happened if, back in the day, the heads at WB had let the cartoon dept make a full feature, with no restrictions? They could very well have come up with something like "Back In Action", lampooning everything imaginable, with an outlandish plot not unlike Marvin the Martian's attempts to blow up the Earth.
Of course, technology of the time would have kept them from effectively blending humans in the cartoon world so seamlessly, so they would have made up new characters instead. Can you imagine what Steve Martin's villainous character would have been? Well... ya hafta employ humans somewhere these days... :)
This was a heckuva movie, a major improvement on Space Jam, and maybe better than Roger Rabbit. Can't wait for the DVD!
