Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Movie Summary
It’s 1947 Hollywood and Eddie Valiant, a down-on-his-luck detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar, Roger Rabbit. When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, who begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer…
ROGER: You’re just reading the DVD cover and you missed a whole BUNCH of stuff.
BOBBY: That’s the basic plot of the movie, Roger.
ROGER: There’s that part about me and Baby Herman. There’s the part about me and Marvin Acme, God rest his soul. You can’t forget about Daffy and Donald playing musical pianos, for goodness sake! And what about Jessica! Oooh, Jessica…
BOBBY: Yeah, but that’s not the main point of the story.
ROGER: Jessica is innocent. Innocent, I tell ya! She would never play hanky-panky with anyone but me…
JESSICA: …and don’t forget pattycake.
BOBBY: Oh, no…
ROGER: Pattycake. PATTYCAKE???…… AHHHHH!!!
BOBBY: Now you’ve done it, Jessica.
JESSICA: I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.
BOBBY: Roger, calm down. What else did I miss in the intro?
ROGER: …(heavy breathing, calming) Well, jeez. You missed all of Eddie’s backstory about the wicked toon that iced his brother. How poor Eddie was petrified by that evil Judge Doom and his weasels. Ohhhh, let me at ‘em… they make me soooo mad…
BOBBY: People need to watch to see all the Toon stars too…
ROGER: I can give you stars. Look! CLUNK! Look! CLUNK! Loooook! CLUNK! CLUNK! CLUNK!… Is there nothing that can permeate your impervious puss? Hey, Bobby… BLBLBLBLBLBLBBBBBBBB…
BOBBY: Do you think we should discuss the rest of the movie here with the Lunchtime Movie Review crew?
ROGER: Only if you have to. I heard those guys and gals were loonier than the looniest characters in Toontown!
JESSICA: …and sexier too. Especially that Chris Haley. Hubba-hubba.
BOBBY: And THAT is “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”
PORKY PIG: Th-th-th-that’s all, folks!
BOBBY: THE END.
