Rocky and Bullwinkle

I loved the TV show Rocky and Bullwinkle, and I loved Seinfeld and I have enormous respect for Robert DeNiro, so when I saw the advertisements (De Niro, Russo, Alexander, Moose, Squirrel), I was really excited. The concept looked funny too: Rocky and Bullwinkle in 3D in the modern world. Of course the special effects are mind-boggling, that's what all special effects are now, and it was really a lot better than Roger Rabbit--technically. However, I found Who Killed Roger Rabbit to be very engaging as a movie; I cared what happened. For some reason, this film made me feel as though I was watching someone else watch it. Things would happen on the screen that, by all rights should have been very funny (De Niro mocking himself, for example, with an "are you talking to me" scene), but they weren't. There was just something off-putting about the whole exercise. This film was a real disappointment, but at least it was only 88 minutes long. Rated PG, although I can't imagine why. If your kids have heard of Rocky and Bullwinkle, take them. Otherwise, don't bother, they won't get it.
