1.0 out of 5 stars Is real lead balloon, Natasha. Watch old originals instead., November 18, 2003
This review is from: Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The TV show was fast, sharp, and funny, but the movie is slow, dull, and pointless. Fans may have a hard time reconciling the original cartoon characters with these pale carbons: Rocky, formerly the brains of the outfit, is now a forlorn wimp, and Bullwinkle, who used to fire off hilarious puns anytime and anywhere, now offers a few tired one-liners as tedious live-action characters monopolize the footage (the only bright spot is Robert DeNiro's Fearless Leader). This effort would almost certainly have worked better as a 100% animated feature. If you don't know the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons you might get a few laughs out of this, but you'll wonder how the show ever got such a following. Diehard fans of "moose and squirrel" will be disappointed. Sadly, Bill Scott (the original voice of Bullwinkle and co-creator of the TV show) does not get any screen credit at all.

Tom Brody says:
In my opinion, the Rocky and Bullwinkle movie is clever, fast-moving, and adorable. I loved every moment that Piper Perabo was on the screen. Whoopie Goldberg's cameo was an exquisite touch. It is a shame when worthy films are not really commercially successful. For example, Jack Nicholson's gripping fine drama THE PLEDGE comes to mind. THE PLEDGE was not a commercial success for obvious reasons (it had a sour ending).

I was dumb enough to see this in a movie theater and I was real sorry to have been in there when it started....
