Live-action and animation collide in the hilarious and thrilling Disney comedy-thriller, which stars Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant, a broken-down private detective forced to hide and protect a popular “toon” accused of murder. In addition to its smart use of noir trappings, the film also brings together various Disney, Warner Bros. and other cartoon characters. Plus, it features one of the most eye-popping “femme fatale” characters in human “toon” Jessica Rabbit (modeled by Betsy Brantley and voiced by Kathleen Turner), quite literally. If you’ve seen the movie, you know what we mean.
