Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

SIFF begins this series of six family matinees (through March 7) with the 1988 Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, directed by Roger Zemeckis. Disney and producer Steven Spielberg went out on an expensive limb with this combined live/animated feature about a cartoon rabbit who hires a real private eye to get him out of trouble. Bob Hoskins is the gumshoe; his one-dimensional costar is the exuberant, emotional, laugh-loving Roger, who gets set up to take a bum rap in classic noir style. What could have been a tedious flexing of the technological muscles becomes a joyride for Looney Tunes-lovers everywhere. (PG) MARY BRENNAN

Every other Saturday, 10 a.m. Starts: Dec. 27. Continues through March 7, 2008
