retro trailer: ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

It’s refreshing to see a trailer admit it right up front: this is a movie about sex and violence.

I bet James Cameron’s Avatar won’t combine live action and animation with the same goofy panache as this flick did.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is available on DVD in Region 1 and Region 2.

    He. I love this film. And this is one of the most accurate trailers I ever seen.

    My sister and I went to see this film when it was first released. Neither of us were working at the time, so we went to a mid-week afternoon matinee which was filled with moms and their preschool and kindergarten aged kids. Every single double entendre and slight dirty joke in this film got a horrified silence from the moms, a puzzled look from the kids, and howls of laughter from my sister and me.

    It wasn’t the film we were expecting to see when we bought the tickets–it was ten times better!

    Now why are they making movies about Legos when they could do a sequel to this?

    I love this film. I love that it can work on different levels. And it’s got a pretty cool Chinatown type plot.

    Unfairly judging Avatar on it’s teaser trailer, I’m going to say that those aliens look goofier than anything in Roger Rabbit, and their film looks hollow and cliche as well. Although, I guess you could say it has a cool Dances with Wolves type plot…

    I just don’t think it will in a good way.

    Saladinho: I was just thinking that Avatar looked like Dances with Wolves meets Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

    Being derivative isn’t necessarily a bad thing though, I mean “Bolt” was “Toy Story” meets “Homeward Bound”, and the plot was about as predictable as they come. It was still an excellent movie though, because the plot _worked_, and the writing, characters, and humor were all strong enough to overshadow it.

    Despite the tsunami of hype, Avatar looks promising.. I’ll be interested to see if James Cameron can pull it off.

    Oh, yeah.. Roger Rabbit is probably my favorite film of all time. Probably one of the most important animated films as well.
