Overview

Charming and fun, this sequel to the 1999's hit Stuart Little has so much going for it that hopefully it will be a bigger hit on home video that it ended up being in the theaters. The immediate response to the image, which includes both 1.85:1 anamorphic and full-frame transfers, is how brilliant the colors and detail looks. This truly is a reference-quality picture, perfectly captured from the original film elements. No signs of distracting elements can be found, and the animation is perfectly blended with the live action. The sound is also wonderful, with a 5.1 Dolby Digital track that shows some nice separation at times, while never losing sight of the necessity for clear dialogue. Just the right moments of surround material really enhance the listening experience. In a nice move, the supplemental features are geared both for adults and children. First up is a commentary track from director Rob Minkoff and visual effects supervisor Jerome Chen. Granted, it can be a bit technical at times, but it's still filled with enough anecdotes to keep it interesting. "Show and Tell" is an extra where, by using your remote, you can choose to watch some very brief featurettes that branch off from the movie. In addition, are two other featurettes, "A Touch of Evil" (specifically discussing James Woods' falcon character) and "Life in the Fast Lane" (a humorous sped-up look at the entire production). For the little ones, in particular, are "Read-Along: Stuart Little's Big Adventure" and "Stuart Little's Circle of Friends Game," as well as a preview of the PlayStation 2 game for this movie. Finally, along with trailers for this film, Master of Disguise, and some other Columbia/TriStar titles, is a visually interesting music video for the song "I'm Alive" from Celine Dion and some filmographies for the main cast and crew. While not an overly exciting group of supplements, the overall packaging as a whole well makes up for any single deficiency.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Stuart, the little mouse that could, soars to new heights in this superior sequel to the 1999 Oscar-nominated family favorite. Stuart (given indefatigable voice by Michael J. Fox) is by now a fully accepted member of the Little family. Even his former nemesis, the house cat Snowball (voiced again by Nathan Lane), has warmed to his presence. But Mrs. Little (Geena Davis) worries when her three-inch charge, Stuart, plays soccer with cleat-wearing human kids, and his brother George (Jonathan Lipnicki) is spending more time with his own friends. Into Stuart's life flies Maragalo (Melanie Griffith), a wayward bird whom Stuart rescues from a predatory falcon (James Woods at his menacing best). Is she the friend for whom the trusting, good-hearted Stuart has wished, or is she not what she seems? The nifty visual effects -- which allow Stuart to drive a miniature car on the streets of New York and pilot a model airplane over Central Park -- do not overshadow the very human story that teaches that size is not an essential determinant in stature.

Mr. Little, Mrs. Little, George and Stuart Little are back. And now some changes from the first movie happens in this movie. First, Stuart Little and George Little share the same room. 2nd George and Stuart has a baby sister. 3rd Mrs. Little lets Stuart drive to school and back (with George) walking with him. 4th, Mr. Little, Mrs. Little, George and Stuart are the only Littles that are back. As the movie opens, George Little (Jonthan Lipnicki) and Stuart Little (Michael J. Fox) has a big soccer game, and now Mrs. Little (Geena Davis) is well, doesn't give Stuart a whole lot of room. While Mr. Little (Hugh Laurie) wants his wife to give Stuart room and does be scare for Stuart Little. Now Geroge Little has a new friend named Will (Marc John Jeffries) and Stuart is loney. But then one day a talking bird named Margalo (Melanie Griffth) falls into Stuart Little. But Stuart Little doesn't know that Maraglo is all what she seems to be.
