Spy Jam

Looney Tunes: Back in Action is the last theatrical movie made that features the Looney Tunes. As well as the last movie made by “Warner Bros. Animation,” because it bombed at the box office. Needless to say it never quite reached the cult status that Space Jam has. Which is a shame, because I feel it’s very underrated. Unlike Space JamLooney Tunes: Back in Action feels like the live action/animated Looney Tunes movie we should have gotten to begin with. They actually give them the spotlight this time. With meta humor and a respect for the long history of the characters. Like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, cartoon characters are actors in the real world. Daffy Duck is sick of being Bugs Bunny’s sidekick, so he gets fired for demanding a change. Long story short, they become secret agents, travel to Las Vegas, Area 52, Paris, Africa, and even outer space. While trying to prevent the evil chairmen of the Acme Corporation from getting his hands on the “blue monkey.” They also fight Looney Tunes “villains” along the way. Brendon Fraser stars as the human (in a long list of movie’s he’s done with CGI characters) and Timothy Dalton plays his secret agent father. Looney Tunes: Back in Action has a ridiculous premise, but I think it fits the characters well.
