Rocky And Bullwinkle must have been a very popular TV cartoon show in the Sixties for Robert De Niro's production company to invest time and money into such a load of codswallop. Put it down to the difference between the American and British sense of humour if you like. Better still, don't pick it up.

Bullwinkle is a moose and Rocky a flying squirrel. They come out of a TV set, followed by a trio of Nazi/Russian baddies who want to take over the world by starting up RBTV (Really Bad Television) that will turn viewers into zombies.

The FBI (Randy Quaid) send a pretty, young agent (Piper Perabo) to find the cartoon animals and save civilisation from Fearless Leader (De Niro), Boris (Jason Alexander) and Natasha (Rene Russo). It would have been better if she had let them get on with it. The worse RBTV has to offer could not match the mind numbing stupidity of this caper.
