E.B. White's classic children's story is brought to the screen in this fantasy, which combines computer-animated characters with a cast of live actors. Mrs. Little (Geena Davis), Mr. Little (Hugh Laurie), and their son George (Jonathan Lipnicki) live in a brownstone near New York's Central Park. The Littles have decided to adopt a younger brother for George, and while they're meeting the children at an orphanage, they are greeted by a mouse named Stuart (voice of Michael J. Fox), who can talk, walk upright, wear clothes, and do nearly anything a human child can do. The Littles are so taken with Stuart that they decide to adopt him, and soon the rest of the family is just as charmed by Stuart -- with the possible exception of Snowbell (voice of Nathan Lane), their house cat. The cast of humans includes Jennifer Tilly, Bruno Kirby, and Dabney Coleman; animal voices are contributed by Chazz Palminteri and Steve Zahn, Jim Doughan, and David Alan Grier.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
You will believe a mouse can talk. Oh, and pilot a toy sailboat, among other anthropomorphic feats. Directed by Ron Minkoff (codirector of Disney's The Lion King) and coadapted for the screen by Oscar nominee M. Night Shyamalan ( The Sixth Sense), this delightful film combines live action with state-of-the-art, Oscar-nominated visual effects. The story comes from E. B. White's beloved book: Hugh Laurie and Oscar-winner Geena Davis star as Mr. and Mrs. Little, who set out to adopt a baby brother for their son George (Jonathan Lipnicki of Jerry Maguire) but instead return home with a mouse (ingratiatingly voiced by Michael J. Fox). The fuzzy white rodent, whom they name Stuart, is not a hit at home. "He's only a mouse," George grouses. The house cat, Snowball (Nathan Lane, perfectly catty), is even nastier, especially after Mr. Little admonishes, "We do not eat family members." Shamed by his status as a cat with a mouse master, he goes on the offensive. A few climactic scenes of peril and some mild profanity (Snowball to Stuart: "Talk to the butt!") earned Stuart Little its PG rating. But the family themes explored here are heartfelt and thought-provoking, especially for children with new siblings.
All Movie Guide
Stuart Little surprised everyone by grossing a decidedly non-little $140 million and playing theaters for months, proving that the box-office rejuvenation of talking animal movies had legs beyond Babe. In fact, though much can be said for the digital title character and his agreeable family of human actors, the talking cats take the cake in this one, starting with the envious, salivating feline voiced by Nathan Lane. Beyond Lane's dynamite line readings, the animators do the subtlest job yet of giving the cat recognizable facial expressions that don't look cartoonish. Never has a house pet seemed so believably exasperated as with the marriage of Lane's sarcasm and the Oscar-nominated visual effects supervised by Eric Allard. This is to say nothing of the seamless way the CGI mouse blends with his human family and real backdrops, cleverly interacting with household appliances and other size-appropriate parts of his environment. Beyond the winning cat-mouse rivalry, Stuart Little offers useful messages to children about adoption and accepting those who are different. It also provides a wonderful showcase for Michael J. Fox, who proves he can remain active in the movies as a vocal talent even if his Parkinson's keeps him from appearing onscreen. Stuart Little may not have quite the crossover appeal to adults as other contemporary family hits, such as Babe or the Toy Story movies, but it's an unqualified winner with a stature that defies its name.

If you are looking for a movie that will make you smile Stuart Little is a perfect choice. This movie asks us to use our imagination and forget reality for a while. Stuart is addorable and the other animals (especially Snowbell) will make you laugh. The voices are a perfect fit, particularly Michael J. Fox and Nathan Lane. The movie also teaches a valuable lesson about firends, family and relationships. Pull up a chair, pop some popcorn and have fun watching this one. It is a winner!
