5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! April 2, 2001
I think one of the most annoying things about movie critics is that they're supposed to know their stuff, but in the end they come across as just being college guys looking for something dirty to watch! Isn't it funny how they can't help but get down on a hilarious, old fashioned comedy like this and yet show them something like American Pie and it's great intellectual humor! A modern classic! Sickening! This movie was totally hilarious with hardly any sexual humor at all! Allright, just a hint here and there that wasn't necessary. Beyond that this movie was such a perfect comedy for everyone! I absolutely loved this movie! They used every cartoon trick in the book to try and stop that mouse! And wasn't Christopher Walken just incredible?!!! The casting in this was soooo great! It makes me so sad when movies like this come out and hardly get noticed by the public for whatever reason! Probably the lack of sex humor is evident and the previews and it keeps the movie goers away. Anyway I loved it! Do yourself a favor and pick it up! I've got it on VHS but hope to get the DVD eventually!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A delight from start to finish November 12, 2005
Mix in the elements of an early Coen brothers film with some Disney magic, a mouse that could star on digital cable's "Bridezilla", some Laurel and Hardy slapstick with generous portions of "Home Alone" and "The Money Pit" and you've got "Mouse Hunt", an offbeat comedy that is great for everyone.

Comic actors Nathan Lane and Lee Evans star as the Smuntz brothers, a pair of schlemiels that inherit a rickety factory and even more rickety house. Through a freak, they learn the house is potentially worth big bucks and the brothers do their best to turn it into their personal cash cow amidst failures in their professional and personal lives.

The fly in the ointment is a mouse that lives in the house and won't be discarded. This little critter is surely the star of this show and the one you root for over and over again during this happy time DVD. The little guy seems to have a brain bigger than Chicago the way he outwits everyone in the movie time after time.

Kids will enjoy this with you although they won't enjoy the echt-Coen brothers production values. The factory scenes seem stolen from "Hudsucker Proxy" and many of the characterizations are cacricatures you may have seen in "Miller's Crossing". A lot of people will simply call this "Home Alone" with the rodent substituted for the kid and the dopey brothers for the crooks.

Still this is an enjoyable and amiable two hour venture into laughs and wonder that you won't often see on DVD. The script is clever and the action plenty in this little flick. Take it home tonight and look forward to an evening of fun for the whole family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Stupidity At It's Best December 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I can't believe that this movie was marketed strictly as a children's film. There are at least 4 scenes I can think of which make me laugh out loud just remembering them. Mouse Hunt is a live-action Road Runner or Tom & Jerry cartoon. I guess if you have a thing about violence then you shouldn't watch this, but it's really more cartoon violence than anything else, and there's something inherently hysterical about watching two adults get the stuffing kicked out of them mainly because of their own moronic actions.
This is the movie that you watch when you've had a really bad day and need to laugh.

4.0 out of 5 stars We're not dealing with an ordinary mouse. February 16, 2000
I can't belive some of these awful reviews this movie is getting. "2nd worst movie i have ever seen"? come on , i have seen bad movies and they don't look like this. Lets start with the look, what year is it? what lush and rich backgrounds, great costumes, GREAT lighting. This film looks fantastic. Now throw in a fantastic cast, Nathan Lane is one of todays jewels, a real genius, Lee Evans , i think is amazing , like a Charlie Chaplin reincarnation( you must see some other movies with him to understand fully what i mean). To top it off we have Chris Walkin, oh come on, and you say this is a bad movie! Bad movies have Lou Ferigno in them, not Nathan Lane. I am not saying this movie is perfect, i had some problems with the continuity and i thought the characters could have been flushed out some more. But this was Gore Verbinski's 1st film. Not bad for a 1st film. Now i might be a tad bias on this film, you see i have 2 young boys who watch this movie non-stop, so in turn i watch this movie non-stop. I liked it the first time, i liked even more the 34th time and i really like it now after 243 times. I think that says something about a film in itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild and Funny.. January 4, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What was surprising was that a single mouse could be so funny.When I saw this picture for the first time, I laughed so hard I could hardly catch my breath, and I couldn't wait to add it to my collection.If one is into comedies,this one is definitely a must. Nathan Lane and Lee Evans are a blast together.
