Movie Info

E.B. White's classic children's story is brought to the screen in this fantasy, which combines computer-animated characters with a cast of live actors. Mrs. Little (Geena Davis), Mr. Little (Hugh Laurie), and their son George (Jonathan Lipnicki) live in a brownstone near New York's Central Park. The Littles have decided to adopt a younger brother for George, and while they're meeting the children at an orphanage, they are greeted by a mouse named Stuart (voice of Michael J. Fox), who can talk,

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

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.

This simple story features amazing computer effects to render Stuart and a story that will bore anyone over the age of ten.

It is just as E.B. White envisioned it when he conceived of the children's story on a train to New York 50 years ago.

Too bad director Minkoff couldn't inspire his actors to show a little more energy.

Mouse tale with heartwarming emotion and eye-popping effects is anything but cheesy.

O filme se torna entediante a partir do momento em que nossa admiração pela proeza tecnológica alcançada pela Imageworks, criadora do ratinho Stuart Little, chega ao fim.

A fine and funny family film that adults will relish just as much as their children do.

This is that rare children's film that works perfectly for grown-ups as well with its witty story, sharp performances and astonishing special effects that never draw attention to themselves.

As kid's films go, this was not too bad. A little obvious here and there to crusty veterans, but a pleasant diversion for the shorter set without totally boring parents.

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.

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.
