Predictable..... But Fun!
Nathan Lane and Lee Evans star in this fun and sometimes touching film as brothers Ernie and Lars who inherit a mansion from their father. They are really dissapointed when the mansion turns out to be an old dump! They're keen when they find out that it's worth an absolute mint! They go about selling it to a collector of LaRue houses for loadsa dosh but there's one problem.....the mouse living in it! Throughout most of the movie we see the two comic stars chasing after the mouse and coming off the worse for it! It's fairly predictable but still very funny and the storyline and the scripts are actually quite original. Nathan Lane was pretty good in this movie as was Lee Evans. I'd say that this movie appeals to adults and kids because it has a decent storyline and engaging comic moments. 8/10

Quotes

Lars: Hold your end up higher, you're not holding it.
Ernie: I am too.
Lars: You are not.
Ernie: Don't worry about me. Hey, isn't that suit charcoal?
Lars: No.
Ernie: Looks charcoal gray to me, some gray polyester blend. Couldn't even find a black suit for your own father's funeral.
Lars: It's black.


Goofs

When the vacuum cleaner is attached to the sewage line, the mouse watches from outside. He sits on top of the upper ("outer") window panel which has been pulled down to the bottom position of its track (for easier cleaning - consistent with the boys housecleaning). Based on interior and exterior shots in the scene, the lower ("inner") window panel appears to run the entire length of the window. In addition, the position of the curtains change from framing the window to pulled back.


Alternate Versions

DVD version contains six deleted scenes:

  • Lars Smuntz explores his late fathers office in his very own style;
  • Caesar presents his 'weapons' and tools;
