Flick Pick: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
(Buena Vista, 1988)

Amazing blend of animation and live actions, uniting Bugs Bunny and Mickie Mouse onscreen for the first time ever, featuring Mel Blanc in one of his last big screen performances of his beloved voice characterizations, reviving animation as a medium, launching an entire addition to Disney's theme parks, and garnering 4 Oscars and several hundred million dollars in box office receipts.
The movie brought Bob Hoskins long overdue screen recognition, made Kathleen Turner's uncreditted role as Jessica Rabbit the height of sensuality, and combined Disney animation, Spielberg production, top actors, and a great story into a marvelous and unstoppable force of nature.
