Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

 Hey, we’re rated G this time.

The Next 111 Project is our last podcast in June and the movie is a (mostly) jovial cartoon noir. Full marks to Bob Hoskins for selling that the toons are really there, but the main event here are those classic cartoons and, of course, the made-up ones too (like Roger & Jessica). Bob Zemeckis’ technical mastery is at its peak, but let’s not forget how good he is with story and character. This is a joyful time at the movies, but there are some surprisingly dark touches. Oh, and hit up our longtime sponsor, Sparkplugcoffee.com, and don’t neglect to save 10% on your premiere order by typing in the promo code “Top100Project”.

For The Record: It’s a cement roller, not a steam roller.
