Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

In December 2009 Gergely Barki (an art researcher at Hugary's National Gallery) was watching the film with his daughter and saw a painting on the wall in the background of the Little apartment. He recognized it as the long-lost work "Sleeping Lady with Black Vase" by Robert Bereny, which Barki had only ever seen as a black & white photograph from 1928. Barki hunted the painting through the studio, finding it had been purchased from an antique shop by an assistant to the set designer for $500 to use in the film; she then purchased it from the studio once the production was completed. The painting was sold by the American owner to a collector. As of November 2014 the painting was to be auctioned in Budapest, with a starting price of EUR110000 ($137000). See more »

A cheery little holiday film
15 December 1999 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

Stuart Little: The Little family set out to adopt a child, and choose a amiable talking mouse instead, much to the chagrin of their son and the family cat.

There are two words that describe this movie - words I swore I would never use in a review- : cute and sweet. Based on the children's story by EB White, the story is funny, cheerful, engaging and translates well to the screen.

The filmmakers obviously realized that making Stuart look real was essential to the movie's success and spared little expense (approximately half the film's $60 million budget went to Stuart). The results are phenomenal - you can see each individual hair on his face, his movement is amazingly fluid and when he talks, you forget he's animated . The same techniques are also utilized to make the film's felines talk. The voices - Michael J. Fox as Stuart and Nathan Lane as Snowbell - were ideal choices and help to enhance the experience.

Everyone left the premiere sporting a big silly grin and I think you will too. One note - you'll never look at pest control quite the same again.
