A family film about a mouse that lives in an old house where the geriatric owner dies, and Nathan Lane and Lee Evans have plans for, but they have trouble getting rid of the mouse. Its like Home Alone with a mouse.

This review is from: Mouse Hunt (DVD) My husband usually does not like comedies, but he laughed and cried all the way through Mouse Hunt because it is so funny.
This review is from: Mouse Hunt (DVD) I received good customer service from Amazon. I had surfed the net for several days for this viedo, and the only place that had it available was Amazon. Keep up the good customer service Amazon.
i thought the movie was funny it made me laff and for those people that gave it 1 star you people are just 2 mature!! IMaturity all the way!!!
I really had no idea I would like this movie. Based on thecategorization as a family movie, and the bits of it shown asappetizers before it aired on TV, I thought it was just anotherbumbly-cute'ish but bland and pointless movie, the kind you let yourkids watch, but only if it keeps them away from greater evils. Well, it is, and then it isn't. First of all, it has a great deal oftongue-in-cheek about itself - as it's directed by Gore Verbinski, onemay compare this streak of self-irony to the same attitude in(particularly) the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. Furthermore, it plays out sorta like "Home Alone", but with a mousesubstituted for the annoyingly smug kid. This is so silly it actuallyworks, especially since creative animal wrangling (and probably thestate of computer SFX at the time of shooting) means there is somealmost baffling footage of an actual mouse doing stunts worthy of "DieHard" - and if it's unreal for an 8-year-old to beat two burglars it'sutterly ridiculous for a 4-inch rodent to beat, well, anyone, givingthe movie an absurd twist that elevates it above its piers.The movie is full of references to popular action flicks, and thepsychotic pest control guy who is a staple in this kind of story isamusingly overplayed by Christopher Walken.In short, I chuckled warmly many times throughout Mousehunt - the leadsare funny, the battle against bankruptcy, brotherly rivalry and, ofcourse, the mouse from hell is considerably less of a waste of timethan watching paint dry...
When I first saw Mouse Hunt I thought it would be another dreary twohours with the kids sitting through endless, childish, tiresome sceneswhere the mouse always wins etc etc. How wrong could I have been. Thisis easily the best kids movie for adults I have seen. The casting isbrilliant, the script is sparkling, intelligent and genuinely funny,the story line is absorbing and moves quickly, the direction ismasterful, the cinematography is excellent and the music is ageless.Obviously everyone who worked on this project put that little extrainto making it a true classic. The attention to detail is what makesthis film an absolute must watch and the best part is the kids willlove it too. Many people have scored this movie poorly but then theyprobably gave Finding Nemo a ten.
This movie is a laughfest. The first time I saw it, I couldn't control my funny bone, and its comic brilliance continues from start to finish. Its stars are totally believable as two men who are trying to "outdo" a mouse who lives in a house they move into. The slapstick is original and the premise is also original, and what the cast does to the house in order to route out a mouse is outrageous fun.The only downside to this film is the little side trips into sexual innuendo, which I thought spoiled the movie in spots, but overall....This is a classic movie, and you won't go wrong with viewing it. Some parental guidance is necessary if the kids are watching, but it's something out of Laurel and Hardy movie or Keystone Cops caper.The ending surely sets a new standard, too, for redeeming what appeared to be a totally helpless situation. Watch it and roar, and keep the kleenex around, for the tears of laughter!!!
I guess it was just one of the good trailers. The latter seemed quiteattractive and I was looking forward to go and watch the movie. However itwas an utter disappointment. The story seems to go on forever and nothingactually happens - it's always the same old story: men try to kill mouse,think they succeed but mouse gets above their heads. Finally, obviouslythey make friends and open a big factory. Rubbish. Crappy. Unbelievablefrom beginning to end. A waste of time.
This review is from: Mouse Hunt (DVD) Looking for a great laugh you can have with the family? Well this is it one of the few pictures in the last few years that is suitable for all members of the family and it won awards as well. This one goes on my shelf to watch again and again.
This review is from: Mouse Hunt (DVD) I Love this movie. It is gut splitting funny from beginning to end. My VHS made from TV copy bit the dust. So glad to find it in DVD.
MouseHunt has a plot that wouldn't have looked out of place in a Tom &Jerry cartoon. The idea is very simple. Two brothers inherit a rundownhouse from their late father. Hoping to renovate it, and auction it offto the highest bidder, they first have to evict a mouse that's made itshome there. And what follows is an increasingly hilarious series ofoutlandish schemes, traps and slapstick.The plot may be wafer-thin, and it is really a one joke film, but Ilove MouseHunt! It really is that funny. Director Gore Verbinski knowsall about cartoon slapstick in live-action. Something that would reachoverkill in his Pirates of the Caribbean films. But in MouseHunt, theshort running time means that this is a more tightly plotted endeavour,and all the more enjoyable for it.The film uses a combination of animatronics and CGI to create themouse. And they really are very inventive. They undoubtedly used realmice for some stunts. Like the cute scene of the mouse running on topof a wheel of cheese like a giant hamster wheel. But the more difficultones, such as swinging from a light-bulb cord, jumping onto a spoon, orhanging on for dear life to avoid being sucked up by a vacuum are allaccomplished by some very impressive special effects. They recall thebrilliance of the exceptional Roald Dahl film adaptation The Witches.The mouse is the real star of the film, and you can tell Verbinskiconsiders him the hero of the piece. Placing him up againstinsurmountable odds like an insane cat, fire-hoses and propaneexplosions, the mouse emerges triumphant every time. There is somewonderful slapstick in these scenes, and they're all perfectlyorchestrated. I love the part when cat and mouse are inside a piano,running on the keys, and it sounds like an ominous film score.Providing the human element, the two brothers Ernie and Lars Smuntz(Nathan Lane & Lee Evans) are both on top comic form. Evans gets tosport his usual stand-up shtick, and Lane is on fine form as thescheming older brother. He gets the lions share of all the best lines:"He's Hitler with a tail. He's The Omen with whiskers. Even Nostradamusdidn't see him coming!"The two of them take quite a beating over the course of the film. Likewhen they mousetrap themselves into a corner. Or a marvellouslyexecuted sequence that has them sliding down a flight of stairs in abath, over a hill and onto a frozen lake. Then they go in the lake.It's an energetic piece of inspired lunacy that has you laughing sohard your sides feel like they're going to split open.A lot of people who've reviewed MouseHunt have compared it to HomeAlone. And not without reason. The violent slapstick is just about on apar, but believe me, the mouse is much more endearing than MacauleyCulkin ever will be.There's also a fine supporting cast. Vicki Lewis is perfectly horrid asLars' scheming wife. But look out for Christopher Walken's star turn asthe slightly mad and very twitchy exterminator Caeser. Like Ahab afterMoby Dick, his mouse catching contraptions turn out to be his undoing.Verbinski ensures that things never run out of steam, because wisely,he doesn't allow the mouse-catching to be the sum of the film's parts.MouseHunt avoids a pitfall most other films would have fallen into. Heincludes interconnecting subplots that form a more substantialbackbone. Such as Lars' wife, April agreeing to help them with theirfinancial problems so she can turn a larger profit when the house issold. As well as the future of the string factory they too inheritedfrom their father, who a couple of heavies are interested in buying.They're weaved into the plot and called upon when required.All the different plot strands converge in the inspired last 15minutes. The night of the auction. In one long, continuous runningjoke, the slapstick builds until it reaches critical mass. Itssomething that wouldn't have looked out of place in an episode ofFrasier.The final scenes are actually quite touching, and I liked the way themouse proves to be Ernie and Lars' salvation in the end. MouseHunt is areal treat. Delivering laughs, heart and fun in equal measure. And themusical score by Alan Silvestri is one of his best in years.Not to be missed!
This film was obviously directed at kids when you see all the cartoon likeviolence. I'm not sure why so many people get so worked up over theviolencein this film and never say a word about the brutal violence that hasexistedon this planet for centuries. It's all in the name of fun and to make youlaugh. Nathan Lane and Lee Evans were funny and had great chemistrytogether. This was an enjoyable film and a sure winner. Thumbsup.
My children watched this video, and my yougnest began to cry. Not needed slapstick and black comedy combine to form an overall disgusting performance. there are so many good movies out there, and I don't see how producers get away alive with these kind of videos.
It's very rare that I laugh out loud at anything, but every time I watch this movie, I do just that. It's tear-running-down-my cheeks-from-laughing funny.What a delight to watch this movie and forget about all the daily cares and problems.
I think that we all have movies that we think of as the greatest movies of all time. For me this was one of them. This is some of the best slapstick humor I have ever seen. It is hilarious. Of course, there will always be great movies that just won't appeal to some people. So, I can't say for sure that you will like it, but I think that generally, most people really like the movie. I've seen it about twenty times and it gets old really really slow because there is just so much goodness in it. If you're not sure about buying it then rent it for sure.
I thought the plot and characters were very funny and interesting. Christopher Walken almost steals the show. BUT, it is so frustrating to take my children to see what is advertised as a "family" film, and see a woman rip her clothes off and seduce another character. Also, the "one mean p****y" line was totally tasteless, vulgar, and not at all necessary. Sometimes I think the film makers deliberately attract children to these movies and then slip the dirty stuff in on purpose.
"Mousehunt" was the first Dreamworks movie that I ever saw in thetheaters; when I saw it, I never would have guessed that director GoreVerbinski would later helm "The Ring" and the "Pirates of theCaribbean" movies. Considering how neat this movie was, I now feel likeI should have seen it coming. This one portrays brothers Ernie (NathanLane) and Lars Smuntz (Lee Evans) trying to rid their new house of arodent who appears to be more clever than either of them. Some peoplemight call this movie a mishmash of Laurel and Hardy with "The MoneyPit" (some may even include "Home Alone", but I reject that totally).Maybe it is, but it's probably at heart an excuse to have fun, and theending was pretty interesting.So, just expect a really wild time with this flick. And you'll probablyhave to agree that during the short time that Christopher Walken is inthe movie, he totally steals the show. Also starring Vicki Lewis, MauryChaykin, Michael Jeter, William Hickey (in his final role) and WilliamFrankfather (best remembered as the albino in "Foul Play").And remember, a world without string is chaos.
In the wrong hands this could easily have turned into a cruel slapstick and nothing else. It's easy to see this sort of thing turning into a Home Alone type thing with the mouse dishing out cruel punishment after cruel punishment. However it's more than that, although it has elements of those films. The film is witty - mixing the slapstick with a more adult humor and, although the slapstick is cartoony, it is also clever and imaginative in most cases.The strength of the film is in three performances. First and second are Lane and Evans, both having an air of Laurel and Hardy (especially Lane) and they make for a good double act. Lane gets to do his usual stuff while the more goofy antics of Lars suit Evans' stand-up routine background to the ground. However the main success is the mouse. In other hands he would have been a mere excuse for destruction, however here he has `humanity' - a character if you will. This is perfectly demonstrated by the unintentional chase with a nail gun - how dramatic! How tense! But also how touching - the mouse is given intelligence and has a motivation for what happens.Of course at heart this is a kid's film and it is a very good one at that. However these other points give it the feel that it was made for adults too. Certainly the inclusion of Walken as a pest controller is one no child will get.Overall this is well made and is more that just a crude slapstick affair. It can be enjoyed on that level but it just feels that little more mature. To illustrate what I mean - can you imagine the difference if Chris Columbus had directed it? Now you've got me!
My wife Andrea and I waited several months for this film. We love animals.In fact, we have 17 gerbils, two cats, a dozen or so raccoons who come tothe door, not to mention a wild house mouse we call Beatrice. But,unfortunately, Mouse Hunt is not funny. We never really get to know themouse. Sad really. It could have been so entertaining. Instead we findcliches and stereotypes.
Mousehunt is the kind of children's movie adults can watch with the youngsters. It actually works on two different levels. The slapstick and the cute mouse will thrill the young, while the old can enjoy the amazing and slightly dark art direction (Tim Burton flashback!) and some hilarious performances (Christopher Walken is unreal!). The movie does lose it in the end, but by then, the viewer has had so much to laugh about already, that it can be forgiven. Also, the DVD is of exceptional quality, with nice menus and decent extras. Way to go Dreamworks, keep up the good work.
I saw this movie when it first came out. I forgot just how funny it was. Lane and Evans are a great team. Maybe they should team up with..say Jim Carrey....and do a three stooges remake. Anyway, if this movie doesn't have you laughing, you need to get checked for a heartbeat. Scene 14 had me laughing so hard my jaw hurt, but there were many funny scenes all the way through the movie. Highly recommended for the whole family and anyone who needs a good long laugh.
