In New York City, you would come across a small house, home to a family known as the Littles. You would happen to think of them as the nicest family you'd ever meet. One day, Fredrick and Eleanor, both parents and Littles, ho to and orphanage to find a brother for their son, George. While at it, they meet Stuart, a small, but charming mouse, who apparently, is human-civilized. They adopt him, and everyone, even George, loves him. But there is one problem with Stuart's life, Snowbell, the Little family cat, who wants him. But when trouble starts up almost immediately, Stuart must make it back to his home-before snowbell's friends find out about him
In December 2009, Gergely Barki (an art researcher at Hungary'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 and 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 five hundred dollars 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 one hundred ten thousand euro (one hundred thirty thousand U.S. dollars). See more »
No front load washing machine would fill in the manner depicted. First, the water level would never be as high as it is shown, especially with such a small load. The washer would be partially full. Second, the water spigot would not be in the rear of the machine, let alone mounted on the drum. It would be either above the door or in the area around the drum, but not mounted on it. Third, once started, the machine would most likely tumble while filling, or at least do some tumbling before "deciding" on a load size (and thus, "deciding" on how much to fill, how much time it will take, etc.). This machine appears to behave more like a top loader, in that it fills completely and then washes. See more »
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.
