Thru SAT 2/23, MON 2/25: Annual Bugs Bunny Film Festival

Various Times
13th Annual Bugs Bunny Film Festival
at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

If Bugs Bunny and friends are at the Brattle, it must be winter vacation week. The question that comes to my mind: Is it worth $9.50 to watch a bunch of cartoons that seen a hundred times already? I went last year or the year before, and I loved it. There were a bunch of kids that might have been watching them for the first time, so it was great to hear the fresh laughter. I didn't even mind the kids talking here and there.

I'll always been a fan of Looney Tunes, and I think Bugs Bunny is one of the greatest, most versatile comic actors of all time. Whether he's hippity-hopping to international locales, yukking it up through history, spoofing fairy tales, singing opera, or simply cross-dressing to evade Elmer Fudd -- this rabbit could get you laughing dozens of ways while remaining the same cool smart-ass.

And look at all the crap that's out in the theatres right now! (Jumper? Fool's Gold?)

TUES 2/19, THUR 2/21
