Stuart Little

Stuart Little DVD CoverBACK COVER TEXT

“A family adventure filled with excitement, fun and one absolutely adorable mouse!” – George Pennacchio, KABC-TV

Join the fun when the Little family adopts an adorably spunky boy named Stuart (voiced by Michael J. Fox), who looks a lot like a mouse. Mr. and Mrs. Little (Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis) fall in love with Stuart right away, but their older son George (Jonathan Lipnicki) isn’t so sure what to make of his new brother, and the family’s white cat, Snowbell (voiced by Nathan Lane), devises a dastardly plan to get Stuart out of the house…permanently. State-of-the-art special effects, laugh-out-loud comedy and rip-roaring hijinks make this the biggest adventure a Little can have.

WEBMASTER’S REVIEW :: WARNING — POSSIBLE SPOILERS

If you don’t like this movie, it’s really a shame, because this thing is chock full of mousy goodness. And most of them are very informative, if you’re at all interested in how movies are made. Even if you aren’t there are plenty of fun extras including the music videos and the ‘gag reels.’

The “If You Can’t Rock Me” video by the Brian Setzer Orchestra is a great video. Good song, nice visuals, silly cats running around in long coats and some great swing dancing. The special effects aren’t that great, but it just brings back memories of the ’80’s when music videos were new and oh so tacky.

Oh yeah, the movie. The print and sound on this disc are excellent and you can hear every little throw-away joke made by those wise cracking kitties there at the end. Along with Michael J. Fox, Steve Zahn (voice of Monty the Mouth) seems to have made a sub-career out of doing voice overs. (Dr. Doolittle 2 is another film Zahn has provided a voice over for). Monty is my favorite character in this entire film. Fortunately, he will be back for Stuart Little 2: Stuart’s Revenge.

Okay, I made that title up.
