The Raw Toonage Movie: A Romantic Tail (FAKE)
The Raw Toonage Movie: A Romantic Tail is a 2005 American adult animated comedy film that features characters from the short-lived Disney series Raw Toonage. The film was written and directed by Jacob S. Lee and stars the voices of Nancy Cartwright, Jon Lovitz, Jim Cummings, Steve Mackall, Topher Grace, Tea Leoni, and Dave Thomas. The film’s plot is a parody of the 1977 film Chatterbox.
Other voice actors include Kath Soucie, Tress MacNeille, E.G. Daily, Cathy Cavadini, Tony Anselmo, Jess Harnell, Quinton Flynn, Tara Strong, Roger L. Jackson, Sally Struthers, Lacey Chabert, and Morgan Freeman. Produced by Disneytoon Studios, the film is notable for being the first animated Disney film to receive an R rating by the Motion Picture Association of America.
Why It Sucks
- Ridiculous plot.
- Poor grasp of the source material.
- Bad writing.
- For a romantic comedy, it's surprisingly graphic.
- Some of the scenes are either unnecessarily crass or mean-spirited.
- An insulting scene is where Fawn Deer attacks Molly at the home of...THE POWERPUFF GIRLS!
- Bonkers D. Bobcat and Marsupilami are barely in the film.
- It's insulting the whole LGBT community, as both Fawn and Kanga (from Winnie the Pooh) are revealed to be LESBIANS!!! What's even more insulting is that they get married at the very end of the film. Let that sink in for a minute. Two family-friendly Disney characters are lesbians and are married, which is disgusting.
- Wastes the talents of Morgan Freeman, Topher Grace, Tea Leoni, Jon Lovitz, and Quentin Tarantino. (Yes, he's in this, too.)
- Pretty good animation.
- Decent voice acting.
The film was poorly received by critics upon its February 25th, 2005 release. On Rotten Tomatoes, it earned a “Rotten” 11% rating based on 20 reviews, along with an audience score of 31%. The site’s consensus states the following: “Not even a die-hard Disney fan could swallow this demented, mean-spirited and downright offensive ‘romantic comedy’ whole.”
