Editorial Reviews

Live Action Adventure Comedy. Set in a live-action world in which Warner Bros.' beloved assortment of irreverent animated entertainers interact with human characters for maximum comic effect, the story unfolds on the Studio backlot and careens all over the map in time-honored Looney Tunes style. Our celluloid heroes embark on a hilarious adventure that takes them from Hollywood to Las Vegas, Paris and the jungles of Africa in search of Fraser's character's missing father and the mythical Blue Monkey Diamond.

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.

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.

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.

OK guys, this was not meant to be Citizen Kane. Simply put, this is just a silly, fun movie. Like any Looney Tunes project, they throw out a ton of gags, and some work and some don't. The movie is probably best for those of us who grew up watching Bugs and Daffy and company, to enjoy some nostalgic fun. A lot of the humor will be lost on the kids, particularly as the movie and its actors make fun of themselves and political correctness. Star Brendan Fraser leads the way, making fun of that actor named Brendan Fraser. The tunes characters get in on it, with an updated twist. Mindful of all the complaints about the violence in the cartoons, one of the bad guys refuses to throw dynamite that is about to explode, worrying that he will be sending the wrong message to children. Porky and Speedy Gonzalez are having lunch, bemoaning what political correctness has done to their careers. Jenna Elfman (Dharma from Dharma and Greg) has a hard time adjusting to the tunes, at one point lamenting "who carries dynamite?!?!" At one point, Bugs does the thing of transforming himself into the heavily made-up woman. Jenna chides Bugs that it was funny back when, but was distrubing now. That air of what the characters are not allowed to do or to be in these super-sensitive times is ever-present. Still, they do manage to create lots of obvious gags and some of the adult humor the toons were known for (e.g., a mad chase through the paitings in the Lourve, where Elmer is transformed into The Scream) and where the characters take on roles and qualities from the impressionists and surrealists. Joan Cusak makes her inevitable and always excellent appearance. Some fun, some nostalgia, some making fun of themselves and what society has become. Not bad for a film based around the looney tunes and the evil of the Acme coroporation (headed by great comic and under-appreciated novelist, Steve Martin).
