Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Ever since his brother's death, seedy gumshoe Eddie Valiant (Hoskins) has hated Toons - the animated inhabitants of the '40s LA suburb of Toontown, most of whom make a living appearing in Hollywood cartoons. But when studio head Marvin Acme asks him to check up on the extra-marital activities of Jessica Rabbit, the humanoid, torch-singing, Toon spouse of our eponymous stunt-Toon hero, Eddie finds himself up to his fedora in murder, blackmail, and conspiracy. Zemeckis and animation director Richard Williams' comedy-thriller blends live action, Warners-style animation, and a typically tortuous film noir plot to delirious effect. Virtually faultless on the technological front, it also excels in terms of a breathless, wisecracking script, deft characterisation (both human and Toon), and rousing action. At its best, the humour is as cruel, violent, and surreal as vintage Chuck Jones. Supremely entertaining - especially for adults.

Such a good movie, about someone trying to destroy Toon town! Featuring the very sexy Jessica Rabbit (the famous scene where she is caught playing patty cake is arguably the funniest in cinema). Even today the comedy is still relevant and it gives us that right level of nostaligia.
