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
The mousetraps scene was done without any digital effect whatsoever. Over 800 mousetraps were set individually and then rigged with wires under the floor. It took several takes, so each trap had to be reset, baited and wired one at a time. See more »
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.

'Mousehunt' was one of my favorites movies as a kid, thanks to its funny script, that held my attention, much more than I would've thought of. But even today, 'Mousehunt' remains as a fun fare, that hasn't lost its touch.
'Mousehunt' Synopsis: Two stumblebum inheritors are determined to rid their antique house of a mouse who is equally determined to stay where he is.
Don't ask questions & I can assure you 'Mousehunt' will prove to be nothing else but fun. Its twisty plot, coupled with the series of unfortunate events that happen to its protagonists, bring the house down on numerous occasions. Made with heart & joy, this 1997 box-office hit doesn't run out of gas, despite a few hiccups in its Screenplay.
Adam Rifkin's Screenplay, despite a few bumps, is a riot overall. Gore Verbinski's Direction is typically solid. Cinematography is grand. Editing is well-balanced. Art Design is comment-worthy.
Performance-Wise: Nathan Lane is stupendous, pitching in a genuine comedic performance from start to end. Lee Evans supports Lane, admirably. Christopher Walken is deliciously weird in a bit role. Vicki Lewis is first-rate.
On the whole, Wanna laugh & relax on a lazy weekend? Watch 'Mousehunt'. You won't be disappointed!
