Looney Tunes: Back in Action

If the plot sounds a bit inane, it should. After Daffy Duck is terminated from the Bugs Bunny Show by Warner Brothers Vice President Kate Houghton (Jenna Elfman), he joins forces with security guard DJ Drake (Brendan Fraser) in a race with sinister Acme Corporation leader Mr. Chairman (Steve Martin) to recapture the mystical Blue Monkey Diamond. However, when the show's ratings plummet without its masochistic foil, Houghton and Bugs set off on a chase to recruit the duck back. Looney Tunes is standard kids' fare that will be appreciated by two distinct audiences: children under the age of 10 and parents with children under the age of 10 looking for a two hour respite. For everybody else, cameos by the familiar WB cartoon characters provide a sense of nostalgia for those lazy Saturday mornings curled up on the couch in front of the television, but not much else.
