This live-action version of EB White's novel doesn't have quite the magic of, say, Toy Story. Instead of entertainment the whole family can be enthralled with, Stuart Little is squarely aimed, and successfully so, at the four to 10-year-old viewer. Does this make it a bad family film? Not in the slightest. The gee-whiz visual effects (created by original Star Wars wizard John Dykstra) and the film's ebullient wholesomeness make this a welcome addition to the home library. In EB White's world, it's hardly surprising that human parents would adopt "outside their species". The smooth-talking mouse Stuart (voiced by Michael J Fox) seems the perfect new child for parents Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie, especially with an adorable wardrobe of very small sweaters and pants. Stuart has more difficulty fitting in with the Little's family cat, Snowbell (voiced by Nathan Lane, who also deftly voiced Timon in director Rob Minkoff's last feature, The Lion King). The simple story deals with Stuart trying to fit in with his new life, including big brother George (Jerry Maguire's scene-stealing Jonathan Lipnicki). And of course there's an adventure when Snowbell's schemes put Stuart into real danger from the devious plans of an alley cat named Smokey (voiced by Chazz Palminteri). Brisk--85 minutes--amusing and tolerably cute, Stuart Little stands tall. Two curios: The effects are so cleanly done that we could call Stuart the first successfully computer-animated actor, and the screenplay was co-written by M Night Shyamalan, who made bigger waves in 1999 writing and directing The Sixth Sense. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com
Advantages: Fascinating insight into the very interesting House of Stuart Disadvantages: Can only provide an overview of their history
...The Royal Stuarts: A History of the Family That Shaped Britain by Allan Massie chronicles the Stuart (or Stewart) monarchs who ruled in Scotland for 300 years, and a further century in the United Kingdom following the Union of the Crowns. The most famous of these monarchs and their descendants are Mary, Queen of Scots, James VI & I, and Bonnie Prince Charlie, but The Royal Stuarts takes us right...
...Stuart Little is a lovely film if you are under six years old or in your second childhood.
It is a beatifully made film and the casting is superb as you would expect from Rob Minkoff who co directed the lion king.
It follows the Little family( Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis) going to the orphanage to adopt a brother or sister for their son George played by Jonathan Lipnicki. They fall in love...
...Father Christmas bought my five-year-old son the Stuart Little, Big City Adventures CD-ROM game for Christmas and now we have to prize him off the computer so we can have a go.
