When the Littles go to an orphanage to adopt a new family member, their son, George, insists on a little brother as opposed to a big one. His request is honored more literally than he ever imagined when a charming young mouse named Stuart is chosen. While George is disappointed and initially unwelcoming to his new brother, the family cat, Snowbell, is even less enthusiastic at the prospect of having a mouse as his "master" and plots to get rid of him. Against these difficulties, Stuart resolves to face them with as much pluck, love and courage as he can muster. In doing so, he shows his beloved new family that great things can truly come in small packages. Written by

The painting that hangs over the fireplace in the Little family's New York City apartment is "Sleeping Lady with Black Vase," an avant-garde work by Hungarian painter Robert Bereny that was thought to be lost since 1928. It was bought by a set-designer as a prop for $500 at an antique shop in Pasadena, Calif. Its significance was made public when Gergely Barki, a researcher at the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest, discovered it while watching the film with his daughter on Christmas in 2009.

Mrs. Little starts the washing machine without adding detergent. It's possible that there was already detergent in the machine (since it's a front loader), but when we see Stuart in the machine for the next few minutes, the water is clear enough to be rinse water (without detergent). See more »

Gee George, what did you do, get that out of a cereal box? I'm glad you're here George, somebody's got to finish last.

During the first portion of the end credits, George and Stuart are shown fooling around in Stuart's bedroom as Snowbell tries to catch Stuart. Snowbell goes as far as he can to catch Stuart to the point where he is launched out the side window and into a nearby dumpster. See more »
I didn't want to see this movie. Oh no, it looked to cute for me. But one day I turned on HBO and heard that voice. That voice would be Michael J. Fox's voice. He does the voice of little Stuart Little. This made me start watching. So anyway, not only does Michael J. Fox do an excellent job with the voice of Stuart, but Jonathan Lipniki who plays George Little is one of the best child actors, and this shows in Stuart Little. Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie also do a great job playing parents Eleanor and Frederick. This is a must see family film. I promise you will find something about it you like. I didn't think I'd enjoy it, but I'm already ready for Stuart Little 2.
