The Rock As Johnny Bravo!?!
In the history of bad ideas, this ranks right up there with New Coke, Crystal Pepsi, that Pepsi tastes like Lemon Pledge, and...umm....other beverages I don't particularly care for. Yeah, I know that he's getting kudos for doing comedy in The Rundown, yadda yadda yadda, but taking on a live-action Johnny Bravo is whole different ballgame. It simply cannot be done.
On the other hand, I don't really see who could play the role. I'm still scarred by the image of Patrick Warburton as The Tick. The whole thing comes down to this: Don't make live action movies out of cartoons.
I think every studio head who is considering greenlighting a project like this should be forced to watch a back to back loop of cinematic dreck like The Flintstones, Scooby Doo, George Of The Jungle, and Rocky And Bullwinkle.
Can I smell what The Rock is cooking? Yes, and it's eerily similar to what I'd imagine a whiff of the bathroom in Trainspotting would smell like.
