Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Maybe it’s the “bad” way Jessica Rabbit’s drawn, or the nightmares you still have about the melting shoe, or just the world’s-collide shock of seeing Daffy and Donald sharing the screen. Maybe it’s … whatever Baby Herman’s whole deal is. In any case, 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit is without a doubt one of those pseudo-kid-friendly films that seems designed to loosen screws in young minds and to serve as an early indicator that life is going to be way weirder than the adults let on. Combining animation and live action in an eye-popping, Oscar-winning way, Roger Rabbit might as well be titled A Children’s Illustrated Chinatown for the way it exposes the rotten foundation of America’s Dream Factory: Corrupt politicians (Christopher Lloyd’s terrifying Judge Doom), segregation (Toontown is a stand-in for any number of ghettos) and a succinct explanation for Los Angeles’ historic public transportation problems somehow figure into a story starring a cartoon rabbit who breaks stuff over his head for fun. See it on the big screen and watch it warp a whole new generation.

White Water Bay at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
17000 W I-10, (210) 697-5050, sixflags.com/fiestatexas
For double the fun, you’ll thank yourself for hitting up Fiesta Texas. Have your fun on the regular coasters at night when it’s slightly cooler, but first beat the heat at White Water Bay. There’s a variety of water rides and attractions, such as the Bahama Blaster, Bermuda Triangle, Big Bender and more! Of course, you can’t forget about the Texas-shaped pool, nicknamed the Lone Star Lagoon, and the massive Tornado. Seriously, you’ll be sorry if you don’t stop by before summer ends.
