Looney Tunes Back in Action: The Movie [WS] [DVD] [2003]

  • SKU: 6264776
  • Release Date: 03/02/2004
  • Rating: PG
Joe Dante's Looney Tunes: Back in Action comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English, Spanish, and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English and French subtitles are accessible. The supplemental materials continue the wacky tone of the film itself. Bugs and Daffy co-host a series of deleted scenes. The pair also lead viewers through a tour of the film's set and provide commentary on a featurette concerned with the film's special effects. That last feature will be the most interesting for those with an interest in animation, but fans of the two characters will get a kick out of all the extras. Lastly, so as not to disappoint fans of the other most famous pair in the Looney Tunes world, the disc includes a new short cartoon, Whizzard of Ow, starring Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. This is a solid release from Warner Bros.

Synopsis


Looney Tunes: Back in Action
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 studio stuntman D.J. Drake (Brendan Fraser) to kick the duck off the studio lot. D.J. soon discovers getting rid of Daffy is no easy task, and the duck is in tow when Drake makes a startling discovery -- his father Damien Drake (Timothy Dalton), a movie star best know for playing ultra-suave secret agents, really is a secret agent, and he's been kidnapped by Mr. Chairman (Steve Martin), the evil leader of the monolithic Acme Corporation. Damien knows the secret hiding place of the priceless Blue Monkey Diamond and Mr. Chairman will stop at nothing to get it, so D.J. and Daffy set out to rescue Damien and save the diamond, one step behind Acme's musclemen and one step ahead of Kate and Bugs, who now realize how important Daffy is to the Looney Tunes franchise. Looney Tunes: Back in Action also stars Heather Locklear as a lounge singer working for Yosemite Sam (voice of Steve Babiar), Joan Cusack, John Cleese, Stan Freberg, and Roger Corman. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I remember seeing this in the early 2000's and was hoping it had the charm or story of spacejam, it didn't but still had a good mix of looney tunes comedy with the stars of that period . fraser and elfman, and a story that is a little bit all over the place but still watchable picture quality pretty good considering it was just before the blu ray HD DVD sound was good as it was the dolby age, all in all a good transfer of a semi good movie.

    This movie is a dicey idea - sometimes blending live action and animation works beautifully (Roger Rabbit) and sometimes it doesn't. This falls somewhere in between. Bugs Bunny and Steve Martin are in it, so it's not a total washout.

    In a world of Political Correctness, it's nice to see some Lunacy back in Cartoons. Bugs and Daffy shine over their Human Counterparts again(ie Space Jam) with a kid friendly plot that Parents can also enjoy.

    A great movie that mixes real life acting with animation. I love Brenden Fraser and of course Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes gang! A very cute movie no matter your age and for the family as well.
