that their dilapidated estate is
actually worth millions. But
before they can cash in,
they've got to rid the house

Review
MOUSEHUNT was an enjoyable funny movie that it was the first family movie made from DreamWorks and it is a kind of a mix of HOME ALONE and the cartoons of TOM AND JERRY. The only good features of this movie is the actors Nathan Lane and Christopher Walken as well as the character of the mouse who is very intelligent and a clever little rodent who avoids booby traps set up by the two brothers.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
