Parents, who are more apt to be bored by the simple story line, are going to be amazed nevertheless by the smooth, convincing animation that lends Stuart his lifelike physicality and expressive facial gestures.

New York Post
Such astounding computer-generated effects you'll suspend disbelief and root for the hero, a 3-inch talking mouse.

Charming Stuart Little improves on original tale.

Entertainment Weekly
A Little goes a long way.

Christian Science Monitor
Lacks the subtle sense of mystery that distinguished E.B. White's lovely novel, but nicely conveys its playful spirit and amiable tone.
75
Both a dazzling technological achievement and a really sweet movie.

Mr. Showbiz
A bright, lively picture.

USA Today
At least a few good things are found in this small package.

Doesn't have the exuberant inspiration or seamless, polished dazzle of "Toy Story 2," but if the latter is sold out at the multiplex this weekend, the mouse is a passable substitute.

San Francisco Examiner
An enervated adaptation of E.B. White's Stuart Little escapades.

The other, unintentional lesson taught here is that it's easier to make a mouse talk than to come up with something interesting for him to say.

San Francisco Chronicle
Doesn't quite measure up to the extraordinary sweetness of the classic children's book by E.B. White on which it is based. But then again, how could it?
