It's 1947 Hollywood, and Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), a down-on-his-luck detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar Roger Rabbit. When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, and the sinister, power-hungry Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) is on a mission to bring Roger to justice. Roger begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer and the plot thickens as Eddie uncovers scandal after scandal and realizes the very existence of Toontown is at stake! WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT is deliciously outrageous fun the whole family will enjoy.

Deceptively mature movie mixes fun with guns, innuendo.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that some of the nuances of Who Framed Roger Rabbit's storyline -- and much of the film's innuendo-laden humor -- will go right over children's head. Several scenes feature cartoon violence, including one in which characters are thrown into "the dip" (an acid-like concoction that will "erase" toons). A live-action character is shot on screen (no blood), and someone is run over by a steamroller. Adult language used by the live-action characters includes "son of a bitch" and "bastard," and silly double entendres proliferate ("I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way"). Jessica Rabbit is highly sexualized.
