Today is Easter. And the secular world of Easter almost always includes rabbits, often well-dressed walking rabbits capable of hiding eggs and carrying baskets and such things. One of the most memorable anthropomorphic rabbit characters from movies is Roger Rabbit from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," which came out in 1988.

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit" is set in a world where humans and animated characters live side by side. The main character is Eddie Valiant (played by Bob Hoskins), a grizzled private detective who hates "toons." When a goofy cartoon character, Roger Rabbit, is falsely accused of murder, Eddie is Roger's only hope. The real murderer may be Judge Doom (played by Bob Hoskins).

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit" has stunning visuals. The cartoon characters look very real, and film won an Academy Award for its special effects. Throughout the movie, there are many cameos from classic characters. In one scene, Daffy Duck and Donald Duck play pianos together at a nightclub.

There are a lot of memorable scenes in the film. One is a car chase involving an animated car who can talk. Also, the opening scene is hilarious. It is animated, and it is quite effective in the way it introduces non-animated characters.

The cast is excellent. Bob Hoskins is very good as the downtrodden Eddie, who helps Roger, despite hating cartoon characters. Christopher Lloyd is also strong as the movie's villain. Kathleen Turner provides the voice of Jessica, Roger's sexy wife.

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit" is a great choice to watch on Easter or spring break week.
