Customer Review

on April 7, 2004
Disney's last hand-drawn feature isn't a Disney film at all; it's an attempt to make a Warner Brothers Looney Tune feature, which is as sad an end to Disney's legacy as I can think of. To abandon all that made the studio great and try to ape another's success is a sure sign of management's faithlessness in Disney's legacy.
Things start off well enough when a decidedly unlucky rabbit continually gets into ever more hilarious situations (getting run over by a wagon wheel, stuck by a cactus, bitten by a snake, you get the idea). It was the one moment in the film where the audience as a whole was laughing. But after this sequence, I only heard sporadic chuckles.
Although the fast pace and simplistic story accurately mimic the Looney Tunes shorts, the characters aren't nearly as entertaining. None have charisma of Bugs, Daffy or even Pepe Le Peu. Without strong characters the comedy comes off hollow and didn't hold my (nor the audiences' it seemed) interest. The film is a brisk 71 minutes or so, but I was looking at my watch anyways. Someone sitting next to me even fell asleep!
There seems to be a general lack of imagination in this film. The one exception being the completely unexpected way in which the cows are being stolen. It's a great idea that had the potential to be classic moment in Disney animation, but feels roped in, constipated, as if the filmmakers were afraid to trust the idea and let it guide the action.
Young children will mostly enjoy this film while it lasts but it's sure to be forgotten soon afterward. There are a few jokes that are meant for older audiences, but it's not enough to make a lasting impression. This film will be best enjoyed on DVD as a babysitter.
