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.

It's sledgehammer whimsy, and it's not talking to me.

True to the smart-and-zany, shamelessly punning spirit of Jay Ward's hilarious characters.

How does it honor the Americans happily imprinted with the original show's beautiful chaos to have it turned into bastard nonsense?

Rocky and Bullwinkle is stuffed with smart Internet gags, silly movie references and a happy energy.

Made by people who clearly think themselves much smarter than their audience. In place of whimsy, it offers cynicism.

The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle is yet another flawed attempt to turn an ancient TV cartoon into a contemporary live-action movie.

There's enough subversive intelligence poking through the surface of Rocky and Bullwinkle to make fans smile through the rest of the dross.

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is no Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but it has it own goofy charms.
