Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Director
Robert Zemeckis
Certificate
PG
Running Time
104 mins

Before he became obsessed with rubbish motion capture animation, Robert Zemeckis came up with this brilliant blend of live action and cartoon characters, with impecunious, ‘toon-hating gumshoe Bob Hoskins hired to investigate a Toontown scandal in which superstar Roger Rabbit’s saucy wife Jessica (Kathleen Turner) is suspected of adultery. It’s not long before poor Roger is framed for murder.

The late Bristol-based animator Richard Williams deservedly won a special achievement Oscar for his work on the film.
