Audience Reviews for An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster

Recapturing some of the magic of the original film, An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster is a fun adventure. In this chapter Fievel teams up with a local reporter who's attempting to uncover the truth behind a number of monster sightings throughout the city. With the voice talents of Thomas Dekker, Lacey Chabert, and Dom DeLuise, the performances are pretty good. And as usually, there are a couple of catchy, lighthearted musical numbers. However, the animation is mediocre, and lacks the depth and color that the first two films had. Though it's not quite up to theatrical standards, An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster is a whimsical family film that's sure to entertain.

I loved the first two American Tail movies when I was a kid, but this is subpar in comparison. For one thing, Fievel is a huge coward, and that is SO out of character. And this just lacks the heart of the original movies. This would be fine for a young kid who's never seen the originals, but don't bother watching it if you're just looking for something nostalgic. This isn't, at all.

This movie itself is demeaning to the title American Tale. Not to mention that the songs are hardly memorable.
