The problem with live-action movies based on beloved cartoon characters is that humans are never as flexible, as unpredictable, or just plain as goofy as their animated counterparts. So it is with this blend of animation...  more »

As one that grew up watching Rocky and Bullwinkle on TV this was certainly a blast from the past. The computer generated characters were annoying at first but the interaction and the dialogue quickly surpassed into lots of laughs. Hooray for Moose and Squirrel!

Funny in spots. Surprisingly ( for Me) Jason Alexander steals what there is to steal as Boris. Very uneven I thought, although the movie made me miss the T-V series. Worth a look but I didn't add it to my collection of favorites. ** 1/2

Moose and Squirrel make Big Time Movie!
Craig Edwards | By the sea in NC | 01/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000) Hokey smokes! Moose and Squirrel are on video! Jay Ward's beloved cartoon characters become the latest television characters to make the Big Screen transition, having languished in reruns since their prime time series was cancelled in the mid 1960's.
Through a contrived plot device (we know it's contrived because the familiar voice of the narrator tells us it is) those dastardly villains Boris, Natasha, and Fearless Leader have become live action humans and are plotting to take over America. But thankfully a wise FBI agent (Randy Quaid) sends one of his agents (Piper Perabo) to retrieve Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose from their quiet life in reruns in Frostbite Falls, and the animated stars are soon interacting with the real world like the Toons in Roger Rabbit.
This is a loving tribute to the television show, with an absolutely silly sense of humor throwing jokes of every kind in every direction. Everything works wonderfully, from the voices of original Rocky June Foray and new Bullwinkle Keith Scott to the visual effects to the performances of the human stars and the celebrity cameos that pop up every few minutes. Special mention must be made of the bad guys. Jason Alexander and Rene Russo are simply terrific as Boris and Natasha, and Robert DeNiro seems to be having the time of his life as Fearless Leader. Also, kudos to Piper Perabo, at the time a screen newcomer who's just too cute for words as FBI Agent Karen Sympathy.
This is a fantastic family film, with enough to offer the adults as well as the kids. I give this one a high recommendation--load the kids up and get `em out to the theater for this one!"
DeNiro was ROBBED

"This movie was typical ROCKY & BULLWINKLE. Like one viewer stated, "Fun and Tons of Puns." Karen Sympathy? Care and Sympathy? I personally thought it was a riot since I'm a big fan of Jay Ward's Rock & Bullwinkle shorts in those days of yesteryears. Alexander and Russo were terrific as Boris and Natasha. "Face it Boris dawling, as spies we suck." But DeNiro? He was the perfect Fearless Leader and he was robbed of an academy award, his performance was that great (and my wife thinks I'm playing with some loose screws). If you're a Baby Boomer and enjoy the dopey puns and silly (and to some mindless) stuff you found from the 50's and 60's, you should enjoy this farce. I did, but again my wife who moved over a few seats from me in the movie theater thought "He's gone mad." There were a lot of other big stars in this classic, such as Whoopie Goldberg as a judge (!!!!!), John Goodman as a state trooper, good ole Jonathan Winters who is great in anything he touches, and well, watch it and find other big screeners. The other cast member who is absolutely hillarious in the prison guard "Ole" who falls in love with Karen (Piper Perabo). You almost feel sorry for this dumb klutz as Karen makes a fool out of him, but he's in love and at the end, all turns out well. LOL"
True to the original cartoon

"Being old enough to remember the original cartoon, I appreciate the attention to detail with the characters: behavior and physical characteristics. In the fashion of "Roger Rabbit" the mix of animation and live characters is done very well. It's a movie that can be appreciated by young and old alike."
