Buy it... if you listen to John Debney's hyperactive parody scores regularly, because Mark Mothersbaugh's score for this film is very similar in its tone and substance.

Avoid it... if orchestrally and electronically inconsistent parody scores that change direction every thirty seconds are too fragmented for your tolerance.

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle: (Mark Mothersbaugh) With a fond following of nostalgic fans of the original television series featuring Rocky and Bullwinkle, it was inevitable that the two would end up in a digitally rendered live-action film. Director Des McAnuff makes ample connections to the television show (including the 80-year old voice of June Foray as Rocky), and Renee Russo, Jason Alexander, Robert DeNiro overact with zeal in the roles of the Fearless Leader and his cohorts, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. Like many other cartoons gone live, though, Universal's summer 2000 adaptation of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle was no less a disaster. The mixture of the animated characters with the live action photography is clumsy and no quantity of cameo appearances by famous actors and cute in-jokes in the script could sustain 90 minutes of a concept that never ran as remotely long on the small screen. Ultimately, the film was an embarrassment to its talented cast, and with consistently wretched reviews, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle spiraled out of the public light before it could even be adequately marketed. Consequently obscured, therefore, is the film's score by Mark Mothersbaugh, whose credits have included more than his fair share of similar parody projects, including the just previous Rugrats film, which fared a bit better at the box office. With one listen to the score for The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, it is easy to understand what went wrong with the movie. Few film scores are so saturated in the parody genre that their corny style and slapstick attitude make for a nearly intolerable listening experience, with an exaggerated punchline of an unpredictable nature waiting for your ears every thirty seconds.
