The jokes are slightly out-dated, but Ellen DeGeneres is still as funny as ever. Personally, I enjoyed her second HBO stand-up special Here and Now not only because much of her material was new, but I just felt that overall, it flowed a lot better. If you're a fan of Ellen and haven't seen either of the stand-up specials, I'd say watch Here and Now instead.

One of my biggest film guilty pleasures is 1992's Cool World, so I was fairly certain that I would enjoy Who Framed Roger Rabbit? as well. Bob Hoskins [Eddie Valiant], Christopher Lloyd [Judge Doom], and Joanna Cassidy [Dolores] all gave commendable performances, but it was Roger Rabbit that gave the most memorable. Jessica Rabbit certainly resembles the epitome of a femme fatale, but I just don't think she quite lives up to her hype. Despite Jessica having the deep, sultry voice and shapely body, her onscreen presence is disappointedly weak. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is nothing more than an entertaining film that pays a great homage to all our childhood cartoon favorites, and it did an excellent job serving that specific purpose.
