Not great but very sometimes funny update of the classic television cartoon. The inane plot involves the evil trio of Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro), Boris () and Natasha (), who have turned themselves from cartoon into live-action so that they can buy a television station and take over the world.   is somewhat feeble as the FBI agent sent to stop them with the help of that unstoppable duo Rocky and Bullwinkle (here rendered with impressive computer animation). Russo is a gas as the gorgeous femme fatale, while De Niro is over the top plus there’s a boatload of famous names doing cameos (Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, ).  The film does not maintain its hectic hilarity throughout.
