A family film about a mouse that lives in an old house where the geriatric owner dies, and Ernie and Lars Smuntz have plans for, but they have trouble getting rid of the mouse. It's like Home Alone with a mouse.Written by
In the scene when Lars is alone inside the factory, you can clearly see an arm behind the big fan pulling the thread from his jacket. You can even see a watch on the arm. See more »
[at their father's funeral, they carry his coffin down the steps of a cathedral]
Hold your end up higher, you're not holding it.
I am too.
You are not.
Don't worry about me. Hey, isn't that suit charcoal?
Looks charcoal gray to me, some gray polyester blend. Couldn't even find a black suit for your own father's funeral.
No, I'm sure it's gray.

Nathan Lane and Lee Evans star in this fun and sometimes touching film as brothers Ernie and Lars who inherit a mansion from their father. They are really dissapointed when the mansion turns out to be an old dump! They're keen when they find out that it's worth an absolute mint! They go about selling it to a collector of LaRue houses for loadsa dosh but there's one problem.....the mouse living in it! Throughout most of the movie we see the two comic stars chasing after the mouse and coming off the worse for it! It's fairly predictable but still very funny and the storyline and the scripts are actually quite original. Nathan Lane was pretty good in this movie as was Lee Evans. I'd say that this movie appeals to adults and kids because it has a decent storyline and engaging comic moments. 8/10
