Cool World is entertaining, but "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" is superior.

Out of all Live-Action/Animated films made, "Roger Rabbit" was the only successful one finacially and critically, while "Cool World" put a bad taste in critics' mouths. However, the film does have some redeeming qualities, like it's teriffic background design by Barry Jackson, colourful characters, and zippy (perhaps TOO zippy) animation.

Despite it's pg-13 rating, almost nothing in this film is inappropriate. The sex scene, that has been hyped by the film's trailer, wasn't what anybody that has seen the movie expected. Quite weak.

After this movie was released, Ralph Bakshi (the director) hasen't made an animated film in 13 years (with the exception of his first Live-Action film, "The Cool and the Crazy"). There has been talk of a new film made by him, but the status is uncertain.

"Cool World" is only for die-hard Bakshi fans. Others have been warned.
