What a delight to watch this movie and forget about all the daily cares and problems.
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.
Some notable things about this movie. First, it was the first big outing for Gore Verbinski, who would go on to make Pirates of the Caribbean. Second, one cannot spot a single brand name in this movie. Only one other movie has such a distinction; Dick Tracy. And like Dick Tracy, the viewer really cannot guess the decade in which this movie takes place. For sure it happened in the 20th century, since a television, radio, and automobiles are present. But the dress, hairstyle and even language are nondescript. This movie is fun to watch, and a piece of art; I highly recommend it.
