3.0 out of 5 stars Funny But Not Particularly Memorable
As I write this, the average rating for MOUSE HUNT is 3-1/2 stars, which strikes me as a pretty fair evaluation. The movie is funny, and the chemistry between Nathan Lane and Lee Evans is good. In fact, the performances are generally good. Walken is hilarious as the overly intense exterminator. Even the mouse is great. Beyond that, though, the broad slapstick humor is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny,
I am so sick of political correctness I could throw up!
Do you think this will want to make people hurt the animals in they're lives?
Come on, it's funny, rent/buy it.
Of course unless you are offended by humour that involves animals.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious,
This review is from: Mousehunt (VHS Tape)Although you'd think this is a children's movie, it's much funnier. Ernie (a realistic/pessimistic cook who's teetering on the line between polite buisnessman and used car salesman) and Lars Smuntz (clumsy, try-to-be-nice guy with occasional psychotic outbursts) inherit an old string factory and run-down house from their dead father. When both of them are cast out of society (the mayor eats part of a cockroach at Ernie's restaurant and Lars' wife throws him out of the house) they head to their only home: the creepy house their string-obsessed dad left them. When they found out it's actually the missing link in a famous architect's designs, it turns out to be worth over a milllion $. But the house's resident, an intelligent mouse who has kept intruders out of his house for the longest time, begins a chain of laugh-out-loud catastrophic events and outsmarts the brothers, a cat, and even an exterminator (a weird performance by Christopher Walken.) You will like this movie. It's smart, the acting is great, the physical comedy is funny, and I like the little theme music the composer did for this movie. Wonderful film.
5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FUNNIEST MOVIES EVER MADE!!,
This review is from: Mouse Hunt [DTS] (Widescreen/Full Screen) (DVD)I am glad I didn't see this movie in the theater. I would have been CARRIED OUT IN A STRAIGHT JACKET!!!! I was laughing so hard watching this movie I almost passed out! My kids started laughing at me as much as the movie!! If you are depressed, watch this movie. If you are not crying while laughing like a hyenia by the end, you are in ba-a-a-ad shape!

Mouse Hunt, one of the most hilarious movies that DreamWorks produced in 1997 is just fantastic! After Peacemaker (1997), DreamWorks produced another children's movie, this time with a mouse. Even though this movie did not get huge attention like Cinderella or any of the Disney movies, it sure did capture not only the children, but also the adults' attention. It gives children laughter and happiness.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny...funny...funny,
This review is from: Mousehunt (VHS Tape)This movie is a laughfest. The first time I saw it, I couldn't control my funny bone, and its comic brilliance continues from start to finish. Its stars are totally believable as two men who are trying to "outdo" a mouse who lives in a house they move into. The slapstick is original and the premise is also original, and what the cast does to the house in order to route out a mouse is outrageous fun.
The only downside to this film is the little side trips into sexual innuendo, which I thought spoiled the movie in spots, but overall....This is a classic movie, and you won't go wrong with viewing it. Some parental guidance is necessary if the kids are watching, but it's something out of Laurel and Hardy movie or Keystone Cops caper.
The ending surely sets a new standard, too, for redeeming what appeared to be a totally helpless situation. Watch it and roar, and keep the kleenex around, for the tears of laughter!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny & Creative,
This review is from: Mousehunt (VHS Tape)This is a funny and creative movie for all ages. I first saw this movie when I was very young, and loved it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, at least to most people.,
This review is from: Mouse Hunt [DTS] (Widescreen/Full Screen) (DVD)It seems that people either like this film, or hate it, with little middle ground. Count me firmly among those who like it. It's extremely funny, and has a heart as well, with characters that you grow to care about as the film progresses. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars A world without string is chaos....................,
This review is from: Mousehunt (VHS Tape)Mouse Hunt is definitely a comedy to watch and while the concept about two men trying to rid their house of a pesky mouse might seem silly, after watching it you will find yourself laughing. Ernie Schmuntz played by Nathan Lane and Lars Schmuntz played by Lee Evans are brothers who after the death of their father inherit an ancient house from him. After finding out from the historical society that the house is an ancient goldmine they start to renovate the house in order for it to be ready for the auction to be sold. In the process Ernie and Lars and trying everything in their power to get rid of this pest from adopting a ferocious cat named Katzilla to hunt down and eat the mouse, to hiring a very eccentric exterminator named Caeser wonderfully played by Christopher Walken. This movie has a lot of slapstick comedy, great acting, and a mouse that just steals the show.
