it's the closest we're gonna get to the golden age when Mel Blanc did the voices and the cartoons were directed by Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng and Robert McKimson

Live action/animated tale will amuse cartoon fans.

Kids will love the pure madcap zaniness of the plot, the characters and a lot of the gags, and I had a very good time.

Like a pop culture-gorged Hope-and-Crosby buddy flick hopped up on mescaline.

Perfect fare for a 5-year-old on an Apple Jacks sugar high, but scarcely tolerable for anyone moving toward the Raisin Bran end of the aging spectrum.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Merece elogios por seu humor auto-referencial e, principalmente, por resgatar a insanidade das animações originais (ao contrário do fraco Space Jam).
| Original Score: 3/5

...neither offensive nor inspiring. It's undoubtedly fun for kids, but except for its occasional in-jokes there isn't all that much to excite the funny bone of an adult.

For anyone reared on the stuff, Looney Tunes: Back in Action is sweet anarchy.

It's the cleverest mix of animation and live action since Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

..far too much importance is placed on the live action characters, who in contrast look like they should be spectators at a who's-who reunion of animated superstars.

Falls back on movie in-jokes that are often unfunny, while the amusing spoofs are irrelevant because they're not even Warner Bros films!
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This isn't an imaginative rebellion against the physical world like the old cartoons; it's the anarchy of animation, which isn't nearly as fun.

Jenna Elfman needs to be in more movies and Brendan Fraiser, who should have gotten an Oscar for at least two movies I can think of, is underused even though he's in most of the scenes.
| Original Score: 2/5

Dante revives the possibilities of widescreen humor ... literally leapfrogging across time and the cosmos to achieve profundity through expertly controlled chaos.

Ultimately, kids will enjoy it, even if they don't get some of the inside jokes, but it somehow lacks the edge of the short cartoons.

Probably works best if you are into following the logic of cartoons.

The satire becomes unfocused without a driving force behind it, and the adventure is the stuff of which so many movies have touched upon before.
