There are a number of wild cartoons in movies that are live action and aren't considered animated films. When movies include these wild cartoons, it is usually to make the scenes really stand out to the audience and convey a vastly different feeling from the rest of the film. What is interesting is that these wild cartoons in movies are in stories of all genres, from comedies to relatively serious films. Sometimes these wild cartoons are effective in these movies and other times they can't save a bad script.

  1. "The Ten." This hilarious comedy from "The State" creator David Wain tells a series of short, funny vignettes that are loosely based on the ten commandments. In one of the vignettes a story is told by a number of heroin junkies about a rhino who poops on things. This story is, for the most part, animated and is relatively graphic, offensive and, most of all, funny.

  2. "Cool World." This movie mixed wild cartoons and animation and starred the sultry Kim Basinger and rising star Brad Pitt. It was meant to follow in the popularity of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" but was critically panned and generally considered to be relatively unwatchable, with the exception of the wild cartoon world our main characters inhabit. 

  3. "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" Still considered the biggest and best movie that has wild cartoons through out it, living in concert with human beings in the real world, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" may be one of the best movies ever made. This is partly for the incredible technical achievement the movie represents, but also for the near-perfect script, acting, directing and characters. An instant modern classic.

  4. "Osmosis Jones." The Farrell Brothers have done some truly hilarious movies like "Dumb and Dumber" and "There's Something About Mary," but "Osmosis Jones" is not one of them. The concept is quite good: a story about someone who is sick which is shot in live action and then the story about what the body is doing to fight off the disease inside the body through wild cartoons. The wild cartoons are the best part, by far, but unfortunately the live action story is so bad that this movie didn't do well at the box office.

  5. "Kill Bill: Volume 1." Quentin Tarantino is a master at just about every genre of film he takes on, usually making it his own through his own unique style, writing and direction. The first installment of "Kill Bill" is no different, illustrating some incredibly gory and violent sequences in the story of the film using wild cartoon japanimation. This allows for the movie to change in tone and style through these wild cartoons, so the audience can prepare for the next chapter.
