The Zemeckis Family Films – Part 3

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Starring Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd,Kathleen Turner, Charles Fleischer, Joanna Cassidy

Directed by legendary filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Romancing the Stone, Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express)


Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) gets hired by cartoon producer R.K. Maroon (Alan Tilvern) to investigate an adultery scandal involving Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner), the sultry wife of Maroon’s biggest star, Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer). But when Marvin Acme (Stubby Kaye), Jessica’s alleged paramour and the owner of Toontown, is found murdered, the villainous Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) vows to catch and destroy Roger.


NY Times critic Janet Maslin:  “Although this isn’t the first time that cartoon characters have shared the screen with live actors, it’s the first time they’ve done it on their own terms. So, the Toons have one way of viewing the world, the humans another – and the director Robert Zemeckis, as the mastermind presiding over this wizardry, has an all-important overview.  It makes ”Who Framed Roger Rabbit” a film whose best moments are so novel, so deliriously funny and so crazily unexpected, that they truly must be seen to be believed.”


People Magazine: “Your eyeballs have no choice but to go boinnnnng!”
