A Hollywood entertainment that lived up to its hype.

While flawlessly delivered, it's overkill -- so loud and excessive, it makes our head swim.

The real stars are the animators, under British animation director Richard Williams, who pull off a technically amazing feat of having humans and Toons seem to be interacting with one another.

Yet with all that, Zemeckis' $70 million technical tour de force doesn't get pulled down in the undertow of its own cleverness.

Supremely entertaining -- especially for adults.

Not as good as the book, but nonetheless superb.

It's still a superb film, a rare big budget blockbuster that concentrates on a clever story, crisp performances, and brilliant jokes while using its groundbreaking special effects only as window dressing rather than as the main event.

Hoskins está fabuloso, e deveria ter sido indicado ao Oscar. O roteiro decepciona ao não explorar totalmente o potencial do projeto e ao criar uma trama policial pouco interessante. No geral, porém, tem chances de virar clássico.
| Original Score: 5/5

Although this isn't the first time that cartoon characters have shared the screen with live actors, it's the first time they've done it on their own terms.

The first blend of animation and live-action that seemed so natural we felt the characters were real. There's many a lad still harbouring a crush on Jessica Rabbit.

Miraculously, the film isn't overshadowed by its technical achievement.

The film provides both slap-stick humor for kids and clever satire and social commentary for adults.

Excellent sight gags, clever dialogue, and improbable waistline.
| Original Score: 4/5

...an exuberant, funny, inventive, and wholly entertaining piece of whimsy.

Among its other assets, it's an oddly fitting swan song for the great Mel Blanc.
| Original Score: 4/5

A glorious mix of diverse styles, techniques and worlds molded into a cohesive and unique whole.

A wondrous, mind-boggling and impossibly clever movie that may, given a decade or two for hindsight, emerge as the most remarkable film of this high concept era.

Visually stunning and creatively superior, Zemeckis's work is frequently staggering and always entertaining.
