Gabriel Byrne plays a comic book artist whose little world of ‘doodles’ and ‘humanoids’ turns out to actually exist! After a scientist finds a way to bridge the human world with Byrne’s, he enters ‘Cool World’ and meets the star of his comic strip, a sexy vamp named Holli Would. What Holli really wants is to go back to Earth with Byrne and become a real woman, which she does in the form of . Ralph Bakshi (Fritz The Cat) combines Roger Rabbit storytelling with his adult vision of animation to extremely poor effect, and the pitiful screenplay certainly doesn’t help. Like Basinger and Byrne, also embarrasses himself by appearing in this film, his character a cop who monitors toon life in Cool World. This whole film is a giant, boring, worthless mess.
