The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle DVD|
The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle suffers from a problem common among live-action movies that are based on beloved cartoon characters--the humans are never as flexible, unpredictable, or just plain goofy as their animated counterparts. In this blend of animation and live action, Rocky and Bullwinkle remain animated characters (trapped in our reality), while Boris and Natasha (Jason Alexander and Rene Russo), along with their boss, Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro), are transformed from cartoons to human reproductions when they escape from rerun land. They've come to our world to take it over; the FBI springs Rocky and Bullwinkle from the second dimension to stop them. But the writing in Kenneth Lonergan's script lacks the throw-away flair of the jokes that characterised Jay Ward's much-beloved animated series of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Part of the problem is that Russo, Alexander and De Niro are so obviously working at acting cartoonish, instead of simply being cartoons. And part is that the script rarely comes up with the kind of wonderful wordplay in which Ward specialised. The moose, as usual, gets all the best lines, but they're too few and far between to salvage this underachieving summer film. --Marshall Fine, Amazon.comfrom£9.95 | RRP:

Children's adventure comedy directed by Des McAnuff and starring Robert De Niro, Rene Russo and Jason Alexander. Cartoon heroes Rocky and Bullwinkle (voices of June Foray and Keith Scott) find themselves in a bit of a jam when they are ejected from the world of pen-and-ink and into the real world. There they must team up with hopeful young FBI agent Karen Sympathy (Piper Perabo) and save the world from the evil Fearless Leader (De Niro) and his simpering sidekicks Boris Badenoff (Alexander) and Natasha Fatale (Russo). But if there is one thing more dangerous to the crime-busting trio than the inept booby traps set by Boris and Natasha, it is their own madcap incompetence.
