Trivia

A set decorator assistant for the film purchased an abstract painting for $500 in an antique shop in Pasadena and used it as a set prop; in the film, it is visible in several scenes hanging above the fireplace in the Littles' living room. Hungarian National Gallery art historian Gergely Barki recognized the painting while watching the film in 2009 as a work by Hungarian artist Robert Bereny titled "Sleeping Woman with Black Vase". The painting had not been seen since the late 1920s and was considered lost. Barki tracked down the painting, which had been bought by the set decorator assistant after production on the film had ended and was later sold to an art collector. The painting is set to be auctioned in December 2014 in Budapest with a starting price of $137,000. See more »

Colorful, Charming, Nice Story Most People Should Like
16 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, there are lots of name actors are either in front of the camera or being used as voices in this unique animated-real life film. They use real people and animals (except for fake mouths when the animals "talk") and an animated mouse (Stuart, voiced by animation favorite Michael J. Fox.) who looks incredibly life-like.

The colors in this movie are terrific, especially with the house that the Little family lives in. The story has some clever stuff in it but it strictly played for laughs and reactions since credibility is about zero in many parts of this story. However, it's supposed to be outrageous. I don't think Geena Davis has ever played a nicer role than this. It was good to see. The husband was just as nice, played affably by Hugh Laurie.

The jokes are good for the kids and adults. I know a couple of parents who liked this movie even better than their kids, so don't believe it when someone writes that this is a film strictly for kids. That is not so. I did object to some profanity in here at the end, which seemed so out of place, but it's hard to expect Hollywood to get everything right.

The sequel to this film is even better!
