The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

When Boris (Jason Alexander), Natasha (Rene Russo) and Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro) take over numerous television networks with the goal of hypnotizing American viewers, young FBI investigator Karen Sympathy (Piper Perabo) tries to stop them with the help of sharp-tongued Rocky and dim-witted Bullwinkle. John Goodman, Carl Reiner, Randy Quaid, David Alan Grier, Janeane Garofalo and Billy Crystal co-star in this mixed live action-animated comedy.

The movie never quite coheres into a consistent vision. full review

Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Just take it as seriously as the filmmakers did, and you'll do fine.

Sean Means, Film.com

Made by people who clearly think themselves much smarter than their audience. In place of whimsy, it offers cynicism. full review

A.O. Scott, New York Times

A sweet treat for the family audience. full review

Susan Stark, Detroit News

Rocky and Bullwinkle is stuffed with smart Internet gags, silly movie references and a happy energy.

Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune

It's sledgehammer whimsy, and it's not talking to me.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

This movie is a bloody mess if I've ever seen one.

Joel Siegel, Good Morning America

Much of the humor is surprisingly sophisticated.

Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz

There's a word for this movie, and that word is: jolly. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

By the last half hour, you may feel zombied out yourself.

Jan Stuart, Newsday

Looms as the Howard the Duck for the new millennium. full review

Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is no Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but it has it own goofy charms.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is completely in the spirit of its progenitor. full review
