Description

This film mixes live action and animation. Bob Hoskins plays a seedy private eye who is sent on an investigation in Toon-town, an L.A. suburb which houses all the cartoon characters. Jessica Rabbit, a sexy, almost human toon, is up to all sorts of mischief and Hoskins is out to find out exactly what she's doing, involving himself in murder and intrigue.

Customer Reviews

A classic

Reviewed by on

Still one of the best light hearted comedies out there. Great to see even in those days how they managed to mix animation with real life cinematography.
