90 minutes is too long for any incarnation of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
So unrelentingly bad on so many levels.
| Original Score: 1/5
The jokes are so tedious.
...its status as an event picture and insistence upon live action mar what should have been a delightful romp.
| Original Score: C
The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle is yet another flawed attempt to turn an ancient TV cartoon into a contemporary live-action movie.
Looms as the Howard the Duck for the new millennium.
| Original Score: 1/4
McAnuff and screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan seem unable to get the story and the satire to co-exist.
| Original Score: 2/4
Made by people who clearly think themselves much smarter than their audience. In place of whimsy, it offers cynicism.
How does it honor the Americans happily imprinted with the original show's beautiful chaos to have it turned into bastard nonsense?
A cheap, plotless satire.
It's the real people who keep grounding this movie.
By the last half hour, you may feel zombied out yourself.
It's sledgehammer whimsy, and it's not talking to me.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
like Natasha tells Boris: 'Face it. We suck.'
| Original Score: D
Slathered in saccharine moralizing and dully sentimental plotting.
Beyond a few subsequent and scattered humorous and/or clever moments -- that become scarcer as the story progresses -- the film never lives up to its fabulous opening.
Roger Rabbit, what did we do to deserve this?
| Original Score: short
The nostalgic glow wears off pretty quickly ... and the movie has nothing to fall back on except bad puns and a brace of awkward cameo turns.
There's just not enough depth of thought to sustain it onscreen for 90 minutes.
| Original Score: 7/5
