awesome!, 29 April 2007
Author: michaelann-1 from Canada

This movie is definitely one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time. It's warm, funny & sweet. It's a great movie for watching with the kids. I have found this movie to contain little-to-no violence, and no unnecessary splashy special effects, just good, clean, old- fashioned entertainment, like you would expect from Disney studios. This movie is a classic good vs. evil, and it's a great morality tale for children, on the subject of greed. A wonderful movie for cat lovers too! George Wyner was a hilarious bad guy, clumsy and ineffectual.

I would recommend it to anyone & everyone, who love animals, and who loves a happy ending!
