The pride of Frostbite Falls and Whatsamatta U's most famous alumni find their way onto the big screen (and the real world) in this comedy inspired by the popular cartoon series. Years after their TV show is cancelled, Rocky the Flying Squirrel (voice of June Foray) and Bullwinkle J. Moose (voice of Keith Scott) are barely getting by on residual checks; they're wondering what to do next when Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro), the evil genius of Pottsylvania, transforms himself from a cartoon into a living, breathing, nasty human being, thanks to the assistance of television executive Minnie Mogul (Janeane Garofalo). With the help of his newly flesh-and-blood henchmen Boris Badenov (Jason Alexander) and Natasha Fatale (Rene Russo), Fearless Leader plots to take over the world by using television to zombify people and then persuading the masses to elect him president. Can the daring flying squirrel and the well-meaning but not especially bright moose stop them? Unlike the TV show, which made a virtue of its unsophisticated animation, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle employs a technically sophisticated blend of computer-generated animated characters (Rocky and Bullwinkle) and live actors (Fearless Leader, Boris, and Natasha). Human beings making guest appearances include Randy Quaid, John Goodman, and Jonathan Winters.~Mark Deming

This movie is a particular favorite of mine, and when I heard it was coming out on Blu-ray I really wanted to get it, but I didn't want to spend $20+ for it. But when it started going in and out of stock I caved. It was at least worth it, it looks really good on Blu-ray for the most part, everything looks great except for the parts where Rocky and Bullwinkle are in the real world, that animation just hasn't aged very well. It doesn't look terrible or anything, but something to mention. This is a very bare bones disc, it doesn't even have a main menu, it just starts playing the movie right away, and when you play the bonus documentary you either have to watch all of it or fast forward to the end to get back to the movie.
Overall while I could have hoped there would be a little more to this release, especially for the price, I do still appreciate that the movie looks really good and I guess that's all really could have asked for. If you can find it for a reasonable price, I completely recommend getting this while you still can, especially if you really love this movie.
I would recommend this to a friend

It's ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE!
I enjoyed the television cartoon series, so I was excited about seeing The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle on the big screen, and this movie lived up to its predecessor. Yes, the plot was silly, and the movie was filled with bad puns, but this is ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE
