When Frederick little and his wife go look for a brother for their son George, They've adopted a mouse named Stuart, but their Cat Snowbell doesn't like it, and tries to get rid of him.
Why It Rocks
- Amazing acting and voice acting, especially from: Michael J. Fox, Hugh Laurie, and Geena Davis.
- The direction by Rob Minkoff was great and is arguably his best post-Lion King film.
- Great CGI animation for the animals, even for 1999 standards.
- The story is fantastic and obviously stays true to the source material.
- Great soundtrack that is absolutely charming. The score by Alan Silvestri was brilliant and "You're Where I Belong" by Trisha Yearwood was great.
- Likable and enjoyable characters, such as Stuart, George, Snowbell, Mr. Little, and Mrs. Little.
- The first sequel that followed it was good.
- Smokey is a great villain.
- Tne morals are spectacular.
- The humor is funny.
- Great, easily quotable, and memorable lines of dialogue, like "I'm a cat! You’re a mouse!" and "I'm Stuart Little!"
- The writing is really good.
- Brilliant cinematography.
- The Roadster is a really awesome vehicle.
- Snowbell can be an unlikable jerk sometimes (though that's the point of his character), due to how he treated Stuart before he changed.
- The story can be predictable at times, and can take some liberties from the source material.
- While the CGI was great for it's time, it hasn't aged the best and looks a little cartoony by today standards.
- The humor can be kind of annoying sometimes, despite being funny most of the time.
- The Little parents are incredibly stupid and irresponsible. For example, they let Stuart go away with the mice strangers (who claimed to be his parents), without getting any legal verification or proof.
- This was Estelle Getty's final film before her retirement and subsequent death.
