[Uses] class and ethnic stereotypes in support of the idea that it's best to be adopted by rich white people.

Common Sense Media

A likeable, highly entertaining film that endears in spite of the odd spot of Disney-esque schmaltz.

I found myself caring for the humble little mouse, and that's the whole point.

Audience Reviews for Stuart Little


This movie for me as a kid, even as an adult now, down right creeps me out. I dont know why. Michael J Fox isn't the best voice actor ever, neither is he that charismatic about voicing the "adorable" titiluar character. The plot is flimsy and as for the laughs, some but very few work. There's barely any action for the kids either. It's not that bad but it's just a bit rubbish.

A childhood favorite of mine, I loved it.

Some parts are interesting, but surely, not fresh. Stuart Little, could be a good film to watch with our kids, without a doubt, but really the movie presents some boring scenes and plot, that go annoy the audience. Rotten.
