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.

At the end of the movie, the entire family goes back inside from the deck. Mr. and Mrs. Little, George and Stuart on Mrs. Little's outstretched hand. However, her hand is empty, Stuart is not there. See more »
Truly a family movie, especially made for kids. That explains all; the absurdity, the irrational acts, the incredible story and yet the finale.
Don't mess the story by thinking how can it happen in real life, because it won't.
The casts are well chosen, unfortunately Jonathan Lipnicki is less adorable than his appearance in Jerry MacGuire. Geena Davis is very standard as well as the other casts. But look at that little mouse! He's so adorable indeed, very sweet and beautifully made to make you fall in love with him from the first sight.
Well, it worked well, at least from the ratings and the gross income.
A family classic movie. Watch it on a Sunday morning. It will lift your spirit up.
