A pale imitation of the original, An American Tail: Fievel Goes West tries to recapture the magic but it's an obvious knockoff. Once again the Mousekewitz family pulls up stakes in search of the American Dream, this time they head to the Wild West (where they hear tell that mice and cats live together in harmony), but Fievel discovers that it's all an elaborate mousetrap. The absence of Don Bluth's influence is readily apparent by the lack of sincerity to the characters and the cartoonishness of the story. However, the voice talents of John Cleese and James Stewart add some charisma to the film. An American Tail: Fievel Goes West is entertaining, but it doesn't have the charm and sophistication of the original.
