    In my opinion, anyone who gives this movie a bad rating needs to remember what it was like growing up watching these characters. I saw the cartoons when they were in reruns (Hey, I'm only 27.) However, watching this movie reminded me of just how flat-out funny these guys were. The human casting was sheer brilliance, especially Robert De NIro as Fearless Leader.

I saw the cartoons when they were in reruns (Hey, I'm only 27.) However, watching this movie reminded me of just how flat-out funny these guys were. The human casting was sheer brilliance, especially Robert De NIro as Fearless Leader. After seeing him in so many mob-related films, it was a refreshing change to see him basically making fun of himself. Piper Perabo was awesome in here. Rene Russo and Jason Alexander were absolutely hilarious as Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. I also enjoyed the wall-to-wall celebrity cameos such as John Goodman, Carl Reiner, Billy Crystal, and Whoopi Goldberg to name a few. Yes, some of the puns are dry. But, I found most of them to be absolutely hilarious. If I have one complaint about this film, it would be that it's no where near long enough. Otherwise, this is a great movie for the entire family.

    This movie would have been much better if the character of Karen Sympathy or who ever their sidekick is was non existent!

    "Horribly pathetic, the jokes are lackluster, and the story is for 5 year olds with no sense of wit." Obviously, "Cole L." hasn't ever seen the original "Rocky and Bullwinkle" cartoon series. If you remember right, the jokes, were corny, the characters just short of mindless, and overall, the show was just amazingly stupid....but that was the humor of it all!

No one can review this movie, and say that the movie is missing something from the cartoon. The makers of this movie were dead-on with the humor, and the only way you could dislike this movie, is if you didn't like the cartoon. Expand

    Yes, the story is for 5-year olds. Well spotted. And maybe it's just that De Niro hasn't lost HIS sense of humour, unlike others I could mention.

  1. So quick that the flat moments are rapidly, inevitably chased by a new gag.

    Hit-or-miss comedy at its best and worst: When it connects, the belly laughs are long and loud, but when it misses, the groans you'll be hearing are your own.

    Has some good throwaway gags -- but far too often, the moviemakers don't throw them away soon enough.
