Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

[Robert Zemeckis film; Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy]

Roger Rabbit is a cartoon character who, along with many others, exists along with real humans. Eddy is a private eye who has seen better days and has been on the skids since the death of his brother at the hands of a Toon. Rogers' boss hires Eddy to see if his sexy wife has other male interests, but things get out of hand as Roger is framed for murder with no one but the Toon hating Eddy to go to for help.

At 1:24:20, a stand-in for Bob Hoskins juggles 3 large black balls, made to look like bowling balls. He makes 2 throws in a cascade pattern and then 3 high throws in a shower pattern that all land on his head, after which, in a daze, he slips on a banana peel and falls.
