11 Movies Like Who Framed Roger Rabbit Involving a Wrongfully Accused Animated Bunny or With 4 Words in the Title
It seems unnecessary to post this list since most of your Netflix queues immediately show this exact thing when you first log on.
But I’m not doing this for you. I’m doing this for my nephew Mortimer, who just recently learned about movies when I was babysitting for him last Halloween—
Oh no, Mortimer isn’t back from Trick-or-Treating yet.
I guess I’ll go look for him on this fine June morning/afternoon/evening.
No. Mortimer can wait. You clicked on this. You deserve this list.
1) Seven Years in Tibet
Brad Pitt plays an animated bunny named Hans Heinrich who is accused of stealing a Tibetan monk, stuffing him in his pocket, and rolling around Tibet without paying duty fees. I remember back in 1997 the only crime this Brad bunny committed was taking two and a half hours of my time and making it seem like five. In retrospect, a more accurate title would have been Seven Years in my Seat.
2) Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play animated bunnies who are wrongly accused of cheating on Jennifer Aniston while on the set of a pretty decent action/comedy from 2005.
Wait, I remember this being true. And while technically not a crime, this is making me feel super-duper awkward.
I want to write about another movie in which an animated bunny is accused of a crime. A real crime.
Or if the movie just happens to have 4 words in the title. So far that hasn’t happened yet, but it will. Just you wait.
3) 12 Years a Slave
Brad Pitt plays a Canadian bunny named Bass who’s wrongly imprisoned as a slave for about a dozen years. He’s forced to do slave things against his will and—
Sorry, Brad Pitt just texted me and told me it wasn’t his character that was wrongly imprisoned but the one played by Chiwetel Ejiofor named Solomon Northrup. He texted that it was based on a true story and that I should be ashamed of myself for not knowing this important piece of history as it won the Oscar for Best Picture in 2013.
Remember earlier when I said I felt super-duper awkward? Well now I feel even awkwarder than that.
Fun Fact- Brad Pitt sends really long texts and fruit emojis.
There seems to be a pattern developing here...
4) Legends of the Fall
Brad Pitt plays a bunny that gets killed by a bear and he ugly cries. Probably before he gets killed by the bear.
5) The Tree of Life
Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt play married bunnies who are wrongly accused of--
Yeah, I have no clue as to what this movie’s about. I know it’s Terrence Malick and it’s supposed to be arty and stuff, but half the movie’s just shots of fields or possibly the same field. There are dinosaurs and four hours’ worth of voiceover, but all to no real end. Sean Penn’s in it, and he works in an office. Midway through the movie he just takes off and starts walking. I don’t think you can do that in a real job.
Why are all these movies starring Brad Pitt? Can’t you get another actor? Provide at least a shred of variety.
Fine. I’ll get different actors if it makes you happy. But these movies just happen to have animated bunnies accused of crimes.
Vote for your favorite movie in which an animated bunny is wrongly accused of a crime.
6) All the Right Moves
Tom Cruise is an animated bunny that plays football. Rumor has it that if you pause the movie just right you can see his bunny penis. It’s also a pretty decent movie, so don’t just rent it at your local video store for that reason. The proprietor of the local, possibly even family run video store will know just by looking at the position of the videotape exactly what you were looking for. A least rewind the darn thing.
Grateful this was something different.
7) The Color of Money
This 1986 Martin Scorsese movie has nothing to do with bunnies but it does have four words in the title. It won Paul Newman his first Oscar which he later ground into a very special bottle of Newman’s Own salad dressing. I want that shirt Tom Cruise wears that says “Vince”. My name is not Vince, I just want a shirt that says it.
8) A Few Good Men
Instead of playing a bunny, Tom Cruise portrays a lawyer that defends two wrongfully accused bunnies of enacting a “Code Red”. A “Code Red” is defined as “scooping up the field mice and boppin’ em on the head”. Very intense drama, and that’s the bunny truth. Can you handle it?
9) Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Tom Cruise once again plays secret agent bunny Ethan Hunt as he’s strapped on a plane against a nation of rogue rabbits called the Bun-dicate. Hunt is wrongfully framed for all kinds of action-packed shenanigans. Fun for the whole wire-dangling family

10) War of the Worlds
Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi actioner squeaks into this list by virtue of having 4 words in the title. I’ve checked to make sure there are no animated bunnies in this movie. If there were, they were destroyed by the aliens or eaten by Tim Robbins’ kooky character. Oh yeah, and Tom Cruise is in this as well. So random.
I don’t think this is random. It’s nothing but movies starring Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise that have four words in the title.
I’m pretty sure that, with the exception of 12 Years a Slave, that there are no animated bunnies in any of these movies. Is it just possible you could do a movie that doesn’t star Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt since you wrote there are eleven movies on this list?
11) Interview with the Vampire
The final movie on this list is special because it’s the rare movie that is has both four words in the title and involves animated bunnies accused of a crime. You remember back in 1994 Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt playing vampire bunnies and turning Kirsten Dunst into a little vampire bunny. I don’t.
Vote for your favorite movie with four words in the title.
That’s the list. Sorry if this was redundant since you pretty much guessed all eleven movies before you clicked the link.
Feel free to add your favorite wrongfully accused animated bunny/four words in the title movie in the comments below.
And be sure to vote. Someone’s children is depending on it
