Consensus: The plot is a nonsensical, hyperactive jumble and the gags are relatively uninspired compared to the classic Looney Tunes cartoons.

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

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.

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.

What starts out as promising, quickly turns to cinematic crap once Steve Martin shows up.

The bad plot and the excited, but terrible screenplay, don't made this movie a good thing to the filmography of Looney Tunes. With the nonsense gags based… More

I liked it, but I didn't love it! I mildly recommend it, and say that it could have been done so much better!
