At once cleverly subversive and outrageously silly, this marvellous adaptation of Jay Ward's 1960s cartoon features loads of talented actors doing some very wacky things. Boris Badenov (Jason Alexander), Natasha Fatale (Rene Russo) and Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro) have all found a way to escape their cartoon universe and enter the real world, where they plan to start up a television network that will reduce the populace to drooling, mindless zombies. Rocky the flying squirrel and Bullwinkle the moose aren't just going to idly sit by and let it happen, so they find their own way out of the rerun circuit and into Hollywood… where things aren't exactly what they expected. The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is an absolute must see for any fan of the original animated show, and a real treat for any fan of slapstick silliness at its best.

Synopsis

A wild and wacky pun-filled cross-country romp, THE ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE is a cinematic journey worthy of its television predecessor. Using cutting-edge technology in combining animation with live action, director Des McAnuff has created an eye-popping thrill ride littered with ridiculous, silly jokes that are probably making Bullwinkle creator Jay Ward roll around in his grave in laughter--and pride. A stellar cast, including Robert De Niro (Fearless Leader), Jason Alexander (Boris Badenov), Rene Russo (Natasha Fatale), Piper Perabo (FBI Agent Karen Sympathy) and Randy Quaid, keeps tongues firmly in cheek as they do battle over RBTV--Really Bad TV. June Foray wonderfully reprises her television role as Rocky, while Keith Scott does a fine job providing the voice for both Bullwinkle and the Narrator. This self-referential film lampoons elements of the road movie, the courtroom drama, the FBI thriller, the prison drama, and dozens of other Hollywood staples and cliches. Along the way Rocky and Bullwinkle meet up with the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Carl Reiner, David Alan Grier, Don Novello, Janeane Garofalo, John Goodman, and Jonathan Winters in a series of comic mishaps reminiscent of IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD.

Description

IN THEATRES: JUNE 30, 2000 (NATIONAL) Popular cartoon characters Rocky and Bullwinkle make their big-screen debut in this adventure tale that combines animation with live action. Years after their television show has been cancelled, Rocky and Bullwinkle are still living off the residuals. Inexplicably, Boris and Natasha become real human beings and partner with the evil Fearless Leader to help him hypnotize the world into electing him president. It's up to Rocky and Bullwinkle to use their cartoon resources to save the day.

Notes

Rocky and Bullwinkle first appeared on television in November 1959 on the show Rocky and His Friends. Director Des McAnuff won Tony Awards for directing BIG RIVER and THE WHO'S TOMMY. This is his second feature film, following COUSIN BETTE. This was Piper Perabo's second film (after WHITE BOYS) but her first starring role. It took three hours a day to apply the makeup for Robert De Niro and Rene Russo.
