Stuart Little 2

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.

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.
