STUART LITTLE (Theater Release USA 1999)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Stuart Little—based on a children’s book by E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web—co-ops live action with very good computer animation to make a classic that belongs in the family home video library. While the anthropomorphic mouse, Stuart, does not have the jaunty appeal of a Mickey Mouse or any particularly distinguishing personality characteristics like Donald Duck, the movie, overall, still classifies itself as a one-in-a-million movie in the lineup of B-grade films. Great work for all involved in producing a loveable film that the whole family will enjoy from its beginning to its ending.

Storyline

An adult couple adopt a mouse who behaves and acts human. Their son does not want to accept his new ‘brother’.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Rob Minkoff for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Jeff Franklin and Steve Waterman for making the film possible.

Fox), Mrs. Little (Geena Davis), Mr. Little (Hugh Laurie), George Little (Jonathan Lipnicki), Snowbell (voice of Nathan Lane), Smokey (voice of Chazz Palminteri), Monty (voice of Steve Zahn), Lucky/Detective Allen (voice of Jim Doughan), and Red (voice of David Alan Grier).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie performs as one of the cutest films built during the late 90s decade for the child/adult share. Provides some good after movie discussion on assimilation into new family situations, how that takes time, effort, and cooperation.
