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

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.

Goofs

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 »

Sweet and memorable movie.
14 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is really sweet, and I enjoyed it enormously. Sometimes it is a bit overly sentimental, and the human characters aren't as charming as the animal characters. Jonathan Lipnicki was sweet as George, but doesn't quite have the charm he brought to the The Little Vampire. Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie do amiably as the parents, but both seem subdued. Luckily, the human characters don't interfere too much with the animals, and still bring a certain charm to the screen. Stuart is wonderfully voiced by Michael J.Fox, and he joined by a hilarious Nathan Lane as Snowbell and a villainous Chazz Palminteri as Smoky. The script is intelligent and sweet, and there are plenty of charming scenes with Stuart and George. All in all, really sweet, fun and memorable. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
