Overview

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.
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 was canceled, Rocky and Bullwinkle are still living off the residuals. This time, when three cartoon villains enter the real world as real people, they decide to take over the United States. The FBI knows that the only way to stop Fearless Leader, Boris, and Natasha is to recruit Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose; however, when they enter the real world, they remain cartoon characters. Rocky and Bullwinkle, along with their FBI sidekick, Karen Sympathy, must travel from Hollywood to New York to foil Fearless Leader's fiendish plot to become president.

    Originally Released in Theatres June 30, 2000 (National)

    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.

    As Fearless Leader, Robert De Niro parodies his famous "Are you talkin' to me?" speech from TAXI DRIVER.

Editorial Reviews

Total Film 03-01-2001 "...The writing cleverly plays off the TV programme's existence....[An] ingenious melding of animation and live action..."
USA Today 06-30-2000 "...[The film has] grown-up jokes and keeps kids laughing, too..."
Los Angeles Times 06-30-2000 "...THE ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE is completely in the spirit of its progenitor....[McAnuff] understands the sensibility that animated the original show and is able to meld the work of real and imaginary actors to replicate it..."
