Boring and worn out as this is, it is also shown in the most blunt and unsophisticated way.

We found this film charming and entertaining, and were impressed that its creators were able to preserve the basic premise of the books: People seem to easily accept, and sometimes even overlook, the fact that Stuart is a mouse who talks and wears clothing.

A delightful, engaging story .

"Stuart Little" goes through the predictable motions of a cute little family fantasy.

It's more of a technical showcase than an entertaining movie and reminded me of the similarly themed film "Cats And Dogs".

A very entertaining movie, though they don't get the mouse in the end!

Boring, predictable and not the least bit amusing .

I don't know if the director believed that he was being creative by introducing a mouse to the cliché, or he was just trying to fill in minutes, but he only upgraded the cliché from boring to abhorrent.

Overall this is an enjoyable family film.

Some critics thought that the movie might have had some moments too intense or unsuited for young children.

Old fashioned fun meets with nice animation in this film about an upper class family who choose to add an orphan to their home.. For cat lovers this is especially entertaining...

Worst movie adaptation of a book ever .

It's so entertaining.

The human performers in the movie are forced to play second fiddle to their animatronic co-stars, and it's just as well, because every one of them is bland and uninteresting, two things that the 'animals' on show here are not.

This movie is really sweet, and I enjoyed it enormously.

Aside from the humour, there are other memorably entertaining parts, such as the boat race, and the story gets more exciting later on.

However, it quickly becomes apparent that thefilm has no such pretensions, that it really is just a dumb,predictable story about ...

As an adult, I found the movie clean, very entertaining and enjoyed it thoroughly.

This was just a solid, entertaining movie, sure shows Van Damme a thing or two.

Engaging family flick in the mould of "Toy Story" and its sequel.

You would be doing way better by seeing (even again) either of the "Toy Story" movies, which are very much more entertaining and original.

We expected a mouse to bring life in a boring family.

Based on the children's story by EB White, the story is funny, cheerful, engaging and translates well to the screen.

This overwhelming cuteness, together with the rather predictable story-line prevent this from being a great family movie, though it is still a good one.

However, the latter half of the movie is kind of boring, so it is not so great a piece to be remembered.

My entire family enjoyed it - the afternoon was a very rewarding experience.

Stuart Little is definitely one of the most enjoyable that has come along in several years.

Sure, the plot is predictable and manic at times.

Since the movie never really soars as an imaginative fantasy, it is free to trot out all the predictable cliches one expects to find in a story about an adopted child, even going so far as having Stuart's "real" parents come and take him away from the Littles.

This movie is sooo predictable.

Very entertaining, not exactly like the book .

Your small adopted child will likely worry about two things after the movie:(1) Your adopted parents only keep you until your "real" parents come along and want to take you away - and you must go even if you do not want to leave your adopted parents.

Stuart Little is simple movie but very enjoyable to watch.

The CGI effects are stunning.

I don't know what gripes anybody might have had with this lovely film, but don't listen to them, just believe ME, this movie has the most engaging characters and is a joy for everyone at any age.

Overall this is an enjoyable family film.

Worth watching!

Very predictable .

See this movie is excellent because it re cute, has excellent performances, excellent script and excellent story, is a fun and entertaining movie for the whole family.

Alley cat language aside, this is a slow, mildly entertaining film.

I had a great time at this movie due to being there with my 7 year old daughter who was fully entranced and immersed.

He did get a little bored in the middle, which I did expect.

Standard children's entertainment which has a more likable Stuart Little than the book's, and predictable.

The kids enjoyed it and that's all that really mattered.

I went to see it with two of my friends, all of us around the ages of 20 and 21 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's great to be able to safely take your children to the movie theater and see an entertaining, positive movie.

It had kept to the funny gigs, like Stuart trying to outwit the cat, and had left out boring clichés which don't even match with anything else.

Fox / Cast: Hugh Laurie, Geena Davis, Jonathan Lipnicki, Julia Sweeney: A great computer generated mouse placed within a screenplay that bares no plot.

The movie is so engrossing that the viewer hardly realises when it comes to its end.

The film contains an internal problem: Stuart's emotionally empty space inside; he feels that he'll never be a real member of the Little family.

The plot is stupid and predictable, the mouse is annoying, and the funny moments are only funny in laughing-at-them-not-with-them sort of way.

For the kids, a good fun but adults will yawn sometimes.

You might want to see Stuart Little as a family film or more likely a children's film but if you have the time, look for something a little more entertaining and finely polished.

Curious premise is developed with some sharpness until the first half hour but the movie goes adrift after, with predictable, sentimental and unfunny situations.

It's boring, unrealistic, unfunny, a waste of talent and cheesy!

I took my 4 year old niece to see it, and I think I enjoyed it as much as she did.

and Really Really Exciting.

The movie was moderately entertaining and reasonably well done.

This film also has a hint of comedy which I found enjoyable and Michael J.

Fox as Stuart and the exciting scene in Central Park (especially for children).

well, kind and supportive and cliché and cheesy.

Nevertheless this is a lovely, funny, extremely entertaining adventure for everyone.

That would leave the story confusing and boring.

It is funny, witty, and totally entertaining even for adults.

but I just can waste my time.

The film is hammy and pretty predictable, and is still great.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who is not upset by movies that "are not like the book".

Our boys, age 9 and 7, really enjoyed it (for different reasons than my wife and I did).

It is a great entertaining children's movie.

This subplot is far more interesting and entertaining than the center line of events.

A movie that's safe to see, entertaining for both children and adults - well, what more could a daddy wish for?

Although this movie bears little (no pun intended) resemblance to the book on which is was based, it is a quite thoroughly entertaining adventure and enjoyable story.

It's thoroughly enjoyable from the first few minutes it begins.

One of the most empty, banal kid's movies I've seen in ages.

The way most of it plays out will come off as standard movie fare - predictable to those of us over 10, perhaps - but the winning charm of Fox as the loveable Stuart coupled with an engaging and appealing cast of characters makes up for any familiarity you might feel.

) The rest is pretty much the usual cliché, about family problems, jealousy from the elder "brother", and at the end all issues are resolved and they are all a "happy family".
