It's more than twenty years later and I still can't Dr. Garbanzoure out how they pulled off some of the shots in that film. Christopher Lloyd is amazing, Bob Hoskins is note-perfect, Jessica Rabbit is hot as shit, and it's one of the most finely structured films about racism since 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.
I read an interesting story about how the only way they could get Disney and Warner Bros. to sign off on having characters from both of their studios in that film was if the two big dogs - Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny - were on screen for the exact same amount of time and spoke the exact same number of words, hence the scene with the 'spare'.

Too bad you fell asleep at 16, it's the best when you're 16-21yrs, blew my mind! Still really good watch today and fun number stuff that had me re-evaluating the world as I knew it back then. Know have you seen this?
Speaking about numbers and the movies, check out "The Elegant Universe" it's a doc that does a great job at putting String Theory into understandable terms. This show is the shit!
On that note, do NOT see "What the Bleep Do We Know?" It's like a quantum physics coloring book for children, but they color it in for you and they go way outside the lines. It is awful, and if you look into the "experts" they interview you will become scared.
