Movie Reviews

An american animated classic
James A. Pantano | beacon, new york United States | 03/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"one of the nice things about having kids is taking them to the movies. and these two films, an american tail and feivel goes west were definite favorites. we had these two movies on vhs and wore them out. my kids are all teenagers now and probably not as interested in watching these kinds of films as they once were, but i really liked these two films a lot so i kind of bought them for myself! if you have seen them then you know how good they are. if not and you are searching for something good for your kids to watch, then i highly recommend. the story is about the experince of the immagrant coming to america, family and friendship, and the determination to persevere. the story and animation is top notch, on par with disney. many of the characters are voiced by popular actors, john cleese and dom deluise to name a few. this dvd contains both movies on one disc and even though it would have been nice to see them get the royal treatment that disney lavishes on their films, im still glad to have them. these are five star animated classics that your children will love and if youre a big kid then you'll love them too!"
Somewhere out there
Drez | Barberton, Ohio United States | 05/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)


Every now and then, a classic character is born. Enter Fivel. In Russia, Fivel's family is threatened by cats, so they go on a boat that's bound for America--where there are no cats. The truth is that America has as many cats as Russia did. Fivel gets seperated from his family, who believe that he died. Fivel spends the rest of the movie making new friends in America (including a cat). The first time I saw this movie, I fell in love with it. This is a truly family classic.

Fivel Goes West is one of those rare sequels that's just as good as the first movie--if not better. Fivel and his family head west for a simpler life. But there are cats in the west too."
Double Feature: Very Cute Tale

"American Tale is a classic. My kids were not born when it first came out. I have always heard the song "Somewhere Out There." but not seen the movie until now. It is heart-warming and at the same time educational, showing the immigrant experience, with opportunities to explain how people came to America to seek new lives, and how they can collectively stand up to oppressors.

My kids enjoyed it thoroughly as well as the sequel "Fievel Goes West", which parallels the American experience of moving westward. Yes, there are cats (problems) out there too."

"This movie is excellent for children under 4 years old. Years ago we purchased this for our now 22 year old. The story never gets old and the mouse fievel is so cute and loveable that children are captivated by his adventures. Great for any collector. Timeless story ."
