Looney Tunes Back in Action

Directed by Joe Dante
With Brendan Fraser, Jenna Elfman, Steve Martin
2003, 91min, 35mm


Dante found a perfect vehicle for his madcap, pop culture-skewering brand of humor in this “spirited, quintessential, and often hilarious Saturday matinee romp” (Jonathan Rosenbaum). Channeling the anarchic spirit of the original cartoons, he unleashes Bugs, Daffy, and the gang in a turbo-charged live action-animation hybrid that sends them from Hollywood to Vegas to the Louvre to the African jungle in search of a mythic diamond.

Artists and Models

Directed by Frank Tashlin
With Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Shirley MacLaine
1955, 109min, 35mm


Looney Tunes animator-turned-filmmaker Frank Tashlin’s absurdist sight gags and magnification of America’s already larger than life pop culture are key influences on Dante’s work. One of Tashlin’s best, this outré satire of 1950s comic book culture—with Dino as a Greenwich Village artist and Lewis as his comics-crazed roommate—bursts with some of the most eye-popping Technicolor art direction ever filmed.

“As a comic book-obsessed kid and rabid Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis fan, Frank Tashlin's first collaboration with Jerry pushed all the right buttons for my 9 year-old mind. Tashlin's antic Looney Tunes cartoon background makes this the most MAD Magazine-like of the Martin & Lewis pics, with Shirley Maclaine hilarious in her second movie role as the inspiration for The Bat Lady, Jerry's favorite comic book character.” —Joe Dante
