Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some of the nuances of Who Framed Roger Rabbit's storyline -- and much of the film's innuendo-laden humor -- will go right over children's head. Several scenes feature cartoon violence, including one in which characters are thrown into "the dip" (an acid-like concoction that will "erase" toons). A live-action character is shot on screen (no blood), and someone is run over by a steamroller. Adult language used by the live-action characters includes "son of a bitch" and "bastard," and silly double entendres proliferate ("I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way"). Jessica Rabbit is highly sexualized.

Sexual Content

Silly double entendres proliferate, including character Baby Herman's reference to his inability to pursue his adult nurse being the result of having "50-year-old lust and a 3-year-old dinky." Jessica Rabbit has a voluptuous figure and wears very revealing clothes. Everything she does exudes sexiness, even when playing "patty-cake" with a director.

Violence

Several scenes feature cartoon violence that borders on the sadistic and the surreal. Characters are thrown into "the dip" (an acid-like concoction that will "erase" toons), a live-action character is shot on screen, and Judge Doom is run over by a steam engine.

Language

Adult language used by the live-action characters includes "son of a bitch" and "bastard." Derogatory remarks are made against the toons.

Social Behavior

A primary theme is that things are not always as they appear and people are not always who they seem to be. The mix of sexuality and animation in Jessica Rabbit's character might be confusing to some kids.

Consumerism

Classic Chevrolets line the streets, Acme labels are lurking around every corner, along with Wild Turkey whiskey, the main character's favorite drink.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main character is an alcoholic and drinks heavily throughout the day. Smoking is also prevalent.
