A rib-tickling tale of mouse and men. The Smuntz brothers (Nathan Lane and Lee Evans) inherit a decrepit mansion, which they find was designed by a famous architect and could be worth millions. Then they discover the crumbling pile is occupied - by a particularly intelligent mouse. Things quickly develop into a Tom-and-Jerry-style battle between the two grown men, and one teeny weeny furry creature... The two stars give highly skilled comedy turns that produce a lot of laughs, though they're upstaged by the wily rodent, by a ferocious feline and by Christopher Walken as a deranged exterminator. Even if the humour is very dark and most of the big laughs are in the first half, the best bits of this one will bring the house down.
