In a land where cartoon characters and flesh-and-blood people work side by side, one little black duck lands in a big pot of trouble in this comedy, which brings the beloved Looney Tunes characters into the real world. Daffy Duck (voice of Joe Alaskey) has grown tired of his status as Warner Bros.' leading avian second fiddle and demands that if he can't be given equal billing with his rival Bugs Bunny (also voiced by Alaskey), he wants to be released from his contract. Kate Houghton (Jenna Elfman), Warners' vice president in charge of comedy, is way ahead of Daffy and orders… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Robert Zemeckis isn't a Hal Walker, but Joe Dante's right up there with Tashlin, Avery, and Jones."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"... a cheerful and self-referential romp blending animation with live action in a non-stop quest for silly laughs."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Live action/animated tale will amuse cartoon fans."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Click to read the article."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
"...neither offensive nor inspiring. It's undoubtedly fun for kids, but except for its occasional in-jokes there isn't all that much to excite the funny bone of an adult."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The film's appeal is universal, much as the appeal of the Looney Tunes characters is universal."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's not a disgrace, but it is a missed opportunity."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"Kids will love the pure madcap zaniness of the plot, the characters and a lot of the gags, and I had a very good time."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Perfect fare for a 5-year-old on an Apple Jacks sugar high, but scarcely tolerable for anyone moving toward the Raisin Bran end of the aging spectrum."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"Bursts with energy but not inspiration."
‑ Matthew Leyland, BBC.com
"A nutty, zany, wacky, unruly, spastically hilarious hodgepodge that hits at least twice as often as it misses."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"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
"Like a pop culture-gorged Hope-and-Crosby buddy flick hopped up on mescaline."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Merece elogios por seu humor auto-referencial e, principalmente, por resgatar a insanidade das animações originais (ao contrário do fraco Space Jam)."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Joe Dante & Warner Brothers destroy more of our childhood memories."
‑ KJB, IGN Movies
