NYT Review: Bugs Bunny and Friends Dash Through Movie Lore

This ambitious fusion of cartoons and live-action comedy has loads of nerve but is only fitfully amusing. At every turn, you can sense the filmmakers' jitters as they pack more and more extraneous stuff into each scene. — Stephen Holden Read the review

Robert Zemeckis isn't a Hal Walker, but Joe Dante's right up there with Tashlin, Avery, and Jones.

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2003-11-21

 

The film's appeal is universal, much as the appeal of the Looney Tunes characters is universal.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2003-11-17

 

A nutty, zany, wacky, unruly, spastically hilarious hodgepodge that hits at least twice as often as it misses.

David Edelstein, Slate, 2003-11-17

 

... a cheerful and self-referential romp blending animation with live action in a non-stop quest for silly laughs.

Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper, 2003-11-17

 

Redford/Newman, Matthau/Lemmon, Laurel/Hardy, Duck/Bunny -- we are talking fabulous screen pairings, the exquisite, instinctive pas de deux of ego as reflected in sublime comic timing, physical awareness and interspecies mind-meld.

Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, 2003-11-14

 

This movie, with all its hopped-up, sugar-rush action, provides plenty of fun for a young audience. And grown-ups with fond memories of Looney Tunes cartoons might find themselves giggling as well.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2003-11-14

 

Pleasant but unoriginal.

Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, 2003-11-14

 

How can you hate a movie that puts Bugs Bunny in a flooded convertible and lets him say 'Hey, whaddya know -- I found Nemo!'

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2003-11-14

 

It's goofy fun. Or maybe we should make that daffy fun.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2003-11-14

 

To use the lingo of Elfman's character, this oddball movie could have skewed appeal.

Mike Clark, USA Today, 2003-11-13

 

You leave the theater smiling, but also with a question: That's all, folks?

Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, 2003-11-13

 

It's not a disgrace, but it is a missed opportunity.

Charles Taylor, Salon.com, 2003-11-15

 

Has its funny moments, but all too often it's a corny, lackluster film in which humans pretend (not always convincingly) to interact with cartoons.

Desson Thomson, Washington Post, 2003-11-14

 

A funny thing happened on the way to this combination live-action/animated feature: they didn't make it funny.

Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, 2003-11-14

 

Reviving Looney Tunes in feature length will no doubt make decent money. But the joy isn't there.

Michael Booth, Denver Post, 2003-11-14
