A family film about a mouse that lives in an old house where the geriatric owner dies, and 'Nathan Lane' and Lee Evans have plans for, but they have trouble getting rid of the mouse. It's like Home Alone with a mouse. Written by
A rare commercial spot for the film not included in the either the VHS or DVD features a dramatic voice-over introduction "A story about a mouse..." which slowly pans to the shadow outline of the famous Disney character. Then the camera quickly cuts to show that it's actually the little guy from Mousehunt holding a pair of toothpick speared olives which he had been holding close to his head. See more »
In the shot when Ernie and Lars head to the factory and we see the striking workers outside the building, a cargo container and a palm tree that are off-set are clearly visible to the left of the screen. See more »
[at their father's funeral, they carry his coffin down the steps of a cathedral]
Hold your end up higher, you're not holding it.
I am too.
You are not.
Don't worry about me. Hey, isn't that suit charcoal?
Looks charcoal gray to me, some gray polyester blend. Couldn't even find a black suit for your own father's funeral.
No, I'm sure it's gray.

Nathan Lane and Lee Evans star in this fun and sometimes touching film as brothers Ernie and Lars who inherit a mansion from their father. They are really dissapointed when the mansion turns out to be an old dump! They're keen when they find out that it's worth an absolute mint! They go about selling it to a collector of LaRue houses for loadsa dosh but there's one problem.....the mouse living in it! Throughout most of the movie we see the two comic stars chasing after the mouse and coming off the worse for it! It's fairly predictable but still very funny and the storyline and the scripts are actually quite original. Nathan Lane was pretty good in this movie as was Lee Evans. I'd say that this movie appeals to adults and kids because it has a decent storyline and engaging comic moments. 8/10
