What's it about?

Hollywood, 1947. Cartoon characters exist as second-class citizens. 


Private Investigator Eddie Valiant (Hoskins) must put aside his prejudice against Toons in order to solve a murder, clear a movie star’s name, and somewhere along the way, find his smile. 


A film that is note-worthy for several reasons: The marriage of live-action and animated worlds and characters has never been beaten, the central performances are astonishing, the direction virtuoso; all while having a plot worthy of some of the best film noirs out there. 


It also gave us Bugs and Micky sharing screen time- not even a Spider-Man / Superman cross-over would be as impressive. 


All this as well as a message that resonates- Laughter is more than a reaction to a banana skin, sometimes it can spell the difference between living and dying. It can save your life, it can also make life worth living. 


“Yeah. Check the probate. Why, my Uncle Thumper had a problem with HIS probate, and he had to take these big pills, and drink lots of water.” 

“Not prostate, you idiot, PROBATE!”
