All sorts of fun! The mouse is the real star! A must watch!

In this late-90s movie, the period is a cool-weird 1940s vibe. Lee Evans body humor is perfection in many scenes. Christopher brings that creepy aura of his to his brief role. The mouse was real, not Cgi which is amazing. A corny movie for teens and adults. Two scenes are not suited for kids: Children do not need to see one character vigorously grope a woman's breasts - tho he was looking for the mouse of course. The kitty extermination chamber scene would have traumatized me as a kid! Truly. Quite a clever mouse. Movie sports an overall positive message of brotherly love and new friendships tho getting there takes muddling thru the muk, literally + figuratively.

In this oddly dark, slapsticky comedy from Gore "Pirates of the Caribbean" Verbinski, a pair of quarrelling brothers inherit a valuable-but-crumbling old mansion. Before they can fix it up and cash in with an auction, however, they must evict the house's occupant - a very resilient, resourceful rodent. Lots of cartoonish "Home Alone" style mayhem and destruction follows. My kids thought this one was a hoot. You'll be rooting for the mouse!

"I think one of the most annoying things about movie critics is that they're supposed to know their stuff, but in the end they come across as just being college guys looking for something dirty to watch! Isn't it funny how they can't help but get down on a hilarious, old fashioned comedy like this and yet show them something like American Pie and it's great intellectual humor! A modern classic! Sickening! This movie was totally hilarious with hardly any sexual humor at all! Allright, just a hint here and there that wasn't necessary. Beyond that this movie was such a perfect comedy for everyone! I absolutely loved this movie! They used every cartoon trick in the book to try and stop that mouse! And wasn't Christopher Walken just incredible?!!! The casting in this was soooo great! It makes me so sad when movies like this come out and hardly get noticed by the public for whatever reason! Probably the lack of sex humor is evident and the previews and it keeps the movie goers away. Anyway I loved it! Do yourself a favor and pick it up! I've got it on VHS but hope to get the DVD eventually!"
This has got to be one of the funniest movies ever made.

"It's very rare that I laugh out loud at anything, but every time I watch this movie, I do just that. It's tear-running-down-my cheeks-from-laughing funny.

What a delight to watch this movie and forget about all the daily cares and problems."
A delight from start to finish

"Mix in the elements of an early Coen brothers film with some Disney magic, a mouse that could star on digital cable's "Bridezilla", some Laurel and Hardy slapstick with generous portions of "Home Alone" and "The Money Pit" and you've got "Mouse Hunt", an offbeat comedy that is great for everyone.

Comic actors Nathan Lane and Lee Evans star as the Smuntz brothers, a pair of schlemiels that inherit a rickety factory and even more rickety house. Through a freak, they learn the house is potentially worth big bucks and the brothers do their best to turn it into their personal cash cow amidst failures in their professional and personal lives.

The fly in the ointment is a mouse that lives in the house and won't be discarded. This little critter is surely the star of this show and the one you root for over and over again during this happy time DVD. The little guy seems to have a brain bigger than Chicago the way he outwits everyone in the movie time after time.

Kids will enjoy this with you although they won't enjoy the echt-Coen brothers production values. The factory scenes seem stolen from "Hudsucker Proxy" and many of the characterizations are cacricatures you may have seen in "Miller's Crossing". A lot of people will simply call this "Home Alone" with the rodent substituted for the kid and the dopey brothers for the crooks.

Still this is an enjoyable and amiable two hour venture into laughs and wonder that you won't often see on DVD. The script is clever and the action plenty in this little flick. Take it home tonight and look forward to an evening of fun for the whole family."
