Movie synopsis Joe Dante directs this fast-paced, inventive combination of animation and live action with irreverent, comic flair. In Hollywood, Daffy Duck is jealous of Bugs Bunny's success and demands a pay increase. Instead of giving him a raise, Kate (Jenna Elfman) a fed-up studio executive, fires Daffy and has him escorted off the lot by security guard D.J. Drake (Brendan Fraser). Drake is a wannabe stunt man who is heading to Las Vegas to find his missing father, Damian Drake (Timothy Dalton), a famous actor/secret agent in search of the elusive Blue Monkey Diamond (a diamond that turns humans to monkeys). Out of work, Daffy joins D.J. while Kate and Bugs Bunny follow, desperate to rehire Daffy. Meanwhile, Damian Drake is being held captive by the evil Mr. Chairman (Steve Martin), a mad scientist who wants the Blue Monkey Diamond for his own nefarious plot to rule the world. Their quest for Damian and the Diamond sends Daffy, D.J., Kate and Bugs on a global adventure, full of hilarious Hollywood spoofs and pop culture trivia. References to INDIANA JONES in the African jungle, or STAR WARS while in space are just a few of the nonstop Hollywood parodies. The entire Looney Tunes cast of characters join the stars, including Elmer Fudd, Tweety Bird, Foghorn Leghorn and many others in this dizzying adventure.
