    Mouse Hunt is inane, antic cinema in the extreme. But even if half the gags don't quite work, the other half are inspired. show more

    The biggest factor working against Mouse Hunt may be its chilliness. Like some of the Coen brothers' work, it's so stylized that it often keeps you at an arm's length instead of sucking you into its whirlwind. show more

    Not very funny, and maybe couldn't have been very funny no matter what, because the pieces for comedy are not in place. show more

    Unnecessary profanity for PG, a little slow for grown-ups, but good for laughs and promoting sibling peace. show more

    Lane, with his extensive stage experience, is acerbic, profoundly cynical and endlessly disgruntled. As the foil, Evans strike the right comic nice-guy note; he has fun with the character's sweetness and refuses to degrade him. show more

    If you're a five-year-old, or the mental equivalent thereof, and love Saturday morning cartoons, the more violent the better, then Mouse Hunt may just be the movie for you. show more

    Lane as the greedy schemer and the timid, gangly Evans make a good slapstick team, with great support from a cast of larger-than-life characters including Walken as the exterminator who approaches his task with military precision and outrageous hardware. show more

    Mouse Hunt is the best funny type of movie I've seen. The mouse is so talented and cute.
