Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

An American Tail: Fievel Goes West—not as high-spirited as An American Tail—seems to have lost the imaginative freshness of the first film in the series. The music and singing stand among the best in animation films, the animation is as good as the original film, but it just doesn’t have the entertainment value of the original story.

Fievel’s (voice of Phillip Glasser) family continues to have challenges with the cats and decides to move west. They find that there are challenges wherever one lives and the west is no exception to this rule.

Additional Thanks 

Thank You to Director Phil Nibbelink and Simon Wells for their directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Kathleen Kennedy, David Kirschner, and Frank Marshall for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Wylie (voice of James Stewart), Mama (voice of Erica Yohn), Tanya (voice of Cathy Cavadini), Papa (voice of Nehemiah Persoff), Tiger (voice of Dom DeLuise), Miss Kitty (voice of Amy Irving), Cat R. Waul (voice of John Cleese), Chula (voice of Jon Lovitz), and Frenchy (voice of Jack Angel).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Watchable for the songs. But, besides that, it seems to lose it in imagination.
