In each episode of Not Playing, Lex Friedman and Dan Moren watch movies they've never seen – but that everyone else has. Watch the classics again for the first time, with Lex and Dan!
We’re not bad podcasters. We’re just drawn that way.
Dan somehow never saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the 1988 American fantasy comedy classic directed by Robert Zemeckis, and starring every awesome cartoon character that ever was. And Roger Rabbit murders a guy. Or does he?!
Hot topics include whether Donald Duck utters a racial epithet (no), whether it’s okay for humans to find Jessica Rabbit attractive (also no), and whether Christopher Lloyd has ever portrayed a young man (also also no).

As with every episode of Not Playing, there are two versions of this episode available:
The Bite-Sized Version: We discuss what we know about the film before we watch, and then share our reactions immediately after the credits roll.
The Commentary Track: We still discuss what we know about the film before we start watching it. Then, we provide a real-time commentary track on the film as it unfolds—and you can tag along. We’ll tell you when to press Play.RSS | iTunes
