Looney Tunes: Back in Action
Film Review November 14, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Brendan Fraser, Jenna Elfman, Steve Martin, Timothy Dalton, Heather Locklear and Joan Cusack. Warner Bros.’ Looney Tunes franchise has been going for 73 years, and from the bug-eyed, black-and-white Bosco to Bugs and Daffy, it’s been a helluva run..."
License to Wed
Film Review July 6, 2007, by Josh Rosenblatt
A couple seeks connubial advice from a celibate with an affinity for Popeye impressions.
"...I may be alone in this sentiment, but jumping from memories of Ingrid Bergman and the Epstein brothers (Casablanca screenwriters Julius and Philip) to a shot of Williams grinning in a clerical collar struck me as particularly deflating. Warner Bros.' latest half-hearted misstep follows two attractive twentysomethings, Ben (Krasinski, from NBC’s The Office) and Sadie (Moore), who meet, fall in love, and get engaged during the film’s breezy, amusing opening montage sequence..."
Cats Don't Dance

Film Review November 15, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Dexterously mixing live action and animation, the movie tosses NBA champ Michael Jordan onto the 2-D court with the entire Looney Tunes gang and the opposing Monstar team of cartoon characters from another planet. Space Jam also represents the debut film from Warner Bros.' new Feature Animation division..."

The Ant Bully
Film Review July 28, 2006, by Marc Savlov
Childhood's fascination with all things small and squirmy makes this story of a boy who becomes an ant a pleasant, if undernourished, tale.
Film Review October 17, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...It’s ingratiating in that nice doggie way, but the dogs, who have had their lips enhanced via CGI to aid in the illusion of speech, don’t have much more on their minds than where the next stick is going to sail in from. Far more interesting was Warner Bros.’ similarly themed Cats and Dogs two years ago, which took the age-old battle between the species into giddy new realms..."

Dennis the Menace
Film Review June 25, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
This film adaptation is based more on the TV series than on the comic strip.
"...If that prospect makes you shudder, then you have some sense of what I'm driving at when I talk about John Hughes causing us to hate our children. Based more on the TV series than on the comic strip, this Dennis the Menace is Warner Bros.' summer bid for family entertainment..."

Music Story January 27, 2006, by Bill Bentley
"...By the time Gone came out on Warner Bros., Williams had already had a lot of high hopes and dashed dreams to experience. In the Sixties he'd been a member of High Country, which released an album on Atlantic, and upon going solo shortly thereafter, he found a guardian angel in producer David Briggs (soon to find fame working with Neil Young) and his Spindizzy imprint on CBS..."

"..."What we're trying to do in Austin," says Dowd, "is basically replicate a normal commercial release so that the folks at Warner Bros., who would like to believe in this, can do something that's very different than they ever do, which is to pick up an independent film. Studios are not in the business of picking up independent films...."

"...Just who are the bands that will define Austin nationally in 1997, and
what are the hopes and expectations of their labels? So far, the list of
names and labels seems to hint towards a crop that's not only more diverse
than last year's alternative-heavy offerings (Fastball, Spoon, Prescott
Curlywolf, etc.), but also somewhat more traditionally rock-oriented --
ranging all the way from Sister 7 (Arista Austin) to Sixteen Deluxe (Warner

Getting to the gist of screwball's golden age
Screens Review March 25, 2005, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Warner Bros., $26.99 Frank Capra's It Happened One Night (1934), Gregory La Cava's My Man Godfrey (1936), and Leo McCarey's The Awful Truth (1937) are routinely, and rightly, celebrated as the collective genesis of screwball comedy. Why Howard Hawks' Twentieth Century (1934) is rarely mentioned in the same giggle is unfathomable..."
