Review on Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Review on Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Roger Rabbit

The cartoon characters shown are a blend of Disney's and Warner Bothers for the first time ever. This collaboration is mentioned on 'Unprecedented cooperation from Warner Brothers and Disney allowed for classic cartoon characters to be seen together for the first time, such as Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny parachuting together, having both Tinkerbell and Porky Pig end the movie, and, of course, the famous piano duel between Daffy and Donald Duck in a Cotton Club-style nightclub, the Ink & Paint Club.' (Filmsite, 2011) Perhaps the reason for this was to make as much money as possible and it worked, as quoted by Ben Falk in a review from 'Visually stunning and creatively superior, Zemeckis's work is frequently staggering and always entertaining. Pulling off that old trick of Appealing to the kiddies, while also satisfying their cynical chaperones, it raked in over $350 million worldwide.' (Falk, 2001)
