Did You Know?


This is the only "American Tail" film not to have Tony Toponi pursue with anymore female mice. The concept that was given to Tony in An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island (1998) (involving him pursuing Cholena) was found as a canonical mistake. This concept is removed from Tony for the finale due to the well-regarded pairing between him and Bridget since An American Tail (1986), declaring Tony and Bridget as the franchise's official main couple.

Wholly disposable kid fodder.
24 August 2000 | by GazHackSee all my reviews

While this film is not as teeth gratingly bad as "The Treasure of Manhattan Island", this straight to video story hopefully marks the end of the Fieval franchise. Without the luxurious artwork or star vocals of the cinema films, the blandness of the regulars is all too obvious. There's a small respite for older viewers in the newspaper office scenes because they are based on films such as "His Girl Friday" but the wit isn't sharp enough to cut mozzorella. Oh yes, most of the characters are named after cheeses (ho ho!) As with all video sequels to cartoons, the songs are hopeless pastiches of the Disney formula and I was forgetting them mid-song. The mystery of the title manages to be sub Scooby Doo in its simplicity. In short, only watch this film if its a choice between this or its predecessor.
