Film Review

The quality plunges drastically in this uninspired direct-to-video sequel. Gone is the charming mix of live action and CGI used in the original two films, replaced by full animation whose flatness and simplicity is symbolic of the entire tale. Surprisingly, the core voice talent remains the same with Michael J Fox, Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie wasting their efforts on a weak plot that sees boy mouse Stuart demonstrate his bravery when Snowbell the family cat is kidnapped during the Little clan's lakeside vacation. Undemanding humour, a sprinkling of mild peril and the obligatory life lessons offer enough substance to keep the very young happy, but only the short running time will impress anyone older.

Plot Summary

Animated fantasy adventure sequel featuring the voices of Michael J Fox, Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie and Virginia Madsen. During a summer vacation with his human family, mouse Stuart befriends a conniving skunk called Reeko and does battle with mountain lion The Beast.
