Looney Tunes: Back in Action! (Deleted Scenes and Final Thoughts)

Scene #1: An alternate opening. A Batman parody with Daffy as Batman and Elmer as some evil composer type character. He plays an organ robot that destroys the city. The citizens running include, Ralph Phillips, Hercules the construction worker, and Giovanni Jones. Porky and Speedy play the cops. Daffy easily stops Elmer, but the Warner Bros. stop him there, stating that he can’t kill Elmer. Daffy mentions that he comes back from the dead, and Elmer runs off crying.

Scene #2: A bunch of romance scenes involving Kate and D.J. the funniest being Bugs and Daffy pointing out their obvious attractions. (Daffy: “He likes long walks on the beach…” D.J.: “You just made that up” Bugs: “And she has a weakness for unemployed guys.” Daffy: “And he has a weakness for being unemployed.”)

Scene #3: A bunch of scenes at Area 52. Including Bug’s dressing up as a boxing referee, and getting two Daleks to fight each other, and D.J. feeding one of the fiends without a face to a triffid.

Scene #4: When Bob is taking Kate to the Eiffel Tower, D.J. is constantly buying paperweights and throwing them at Bob’s head

Scene # 5: Kate having more of a sense of humor. Telling the “impatient cow knock-knock joke” and playing hairdresser with Gossamer. (Why wasn’t he in this movie?)

Scene # 6: A scene showing what happens at ACME when you don’t push your buzzer. Mr. Chairman has you wrapped up in plastic wrap.

Scene #7: Final scene. Here the Blue Monkey apparently reverts something to a previous state. At the temple, D.J. has turned his dad into a monkey so he can get away. Mr. Chaiman rants about wanting to throw people into the lava. (Daffy holding the classic Screw ball sign) Bugs gets zapped and turns into Proto-Bugs. (Great gag) Daffy gets ahold of the diamond and accidentally turns Bugs and Kate into neanderthals. (Bug’s from “Mad as a Mars Hare”) Daffy accidentally aims at himself and becomes an egg. A whistle blows and Bob leaves his shift and actually talks. Mr. Chairman pulss Taz out of a bag to frighten our heros. (Bug’s chewing on Daffy) D.J. aims at Mr. Chairman who claims it will only make him smarter, because of being decended from geniuses. D.J. instead shoots Tweety who has been around this whole time. Mr. Chairman gets the diamond before realizing birds are decended from dinosaurs. A Tweety-dactyl (which is a PTEROSAUR) flies out and eats him, and Taz crumbles to bits.

Scene #8: Various Daffy scenes. Naming resturants he’s banned at, saying he has special needs, becoming part fly at Area 52, (thanks to Bugs) and various bits of him getting hurt at the temple. These deleted scenes are very fun to watch as Bugs and Daffy provide the commentary.

Final thoughts: I love this movie! It has action, heart, comedy, cartoons, a great villain, and I can watch it time and time again and not get bored. To me it is the best movie I ever saw. (And I can say it’s great because Ebert liked it. And if he liked it, then it’s good) Are there any parts I do hate? Well, yes. I still question Shaggy and Scooby being there, and I hate the part where Taz farts. A personal problem is that there is not enough Porky. But those are small complaints. Also depsite the fact it has two problems they are small ones. My second favorite movie 2011’s “The Muppets” has one problem that is huge. (What idiot deciding to put that no talent, emotionless, non-human, Selena Gomez in my Muppet Movie. (I hate her.) It’s a shame that this movie was a flop. But it was WB’s fault for not advertising enough. (Another fate that befell another criminally underated movie from them, “The Powerpuff Girls Movie”) If you’ve never seen this movie, then you really ought to. I don’t care who you are or what your preferences are, watch this film!

A fun little side note, you may or may not know this, but on the special features menu, you can higlight the water tower and find a scene of Sam blowing up. Great stuff.

Personal rating: Well, I hate to do this, but I’d probably have to give this film a 3 for the majority of people. It’s good, but I can’ see it converting anyone. Then again, if you are already a full-fledged Looney-tic, then all the cameos, in-jokes, and beautiful blending of live action and animation, earns this a 4. (If you’re me or my clone, then it’s a 5. And well deserved of that number.)
