Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

The opening short cartoon, featuring Roger, the Baby, and a kitchen, made me laugh harder than I ever had before in a theater. The story is Chinatown-esque and completely irrelevant. The mixing of human and inked characters varies from perfect to obviously fake, but director Robert Zemeckis sets a fast pace. The climactic sequence inside the Acme warehouse always reminds me of the climax of Back To The Future.
