“Who’d want to kill a dumb cartoon bunny?”
what Eddie Valiant wants to know. He’s the toughest private eye in Los
Angeles, and he’ll handle anything – if you’re human. If you’re a Toon,
that’s another story.
Eddie doesn’t like Toons – those cartoon
characters who live side-by-side with humans. Not the way they look, and
especially not the way they talk: word-filled balloons come out of
their mouths and then disintegrate, leaving dust all over his rug.
will work for a Toon if his cash supply is low enough. So he
reluctantly agrees when Roger Rabbit, a Toon who plays straight man (or
should that be straight rabbit) in the Baby Herman cartoon series, asks
him to find out who’s been trying – unsuccessfully – to buy his contract
from the DeGreasy Brothers syndicate.
Then Rocco DeGreasy is murdered – and Roger is the prime suspect! The rabbit is also, as Eddie soon discovers, very, very dead.
censored Roger Rabbit? And who shot Rocco DeGreasy? Was it Roger, or
was it Rocco’s hot-cha-cha girlfriend, Jessica Rabbit? Why had Jessica –
a pretty steamy number for a Toon – ever married a dopey bunny in the
first place? And why does everybody want Roger’s battered old teakettle?
As Eddie combs L.A. from the executive suites of the DeGreasy
Brothers to Sid Sleaze’s porno comic studio, he uncovers art thefts,
blackmail plots….and the cagiest killer he’s ever faced. From Goodreads.
This was okay, a bit silly but fun. I know I saw the film advertised when it came out but I don't think I ever saw it, I have now ordered the DVD from the library.
