Genre: Comedy/Drama

Starring: Nathan Lane, Lee Evans

Rudolf Smuntz is a millionaire who has made his money by manufacturing string. With his death, all his assets and properties are transferred to his sons Ernie (Lane) and Lars (Evans). Ernie is a chef whose once famous restaurant has been shut due to contaminated food. Lars was put in charge to run the ailing string factory, whose sales have fallen miserably due to lack of demand. Both having failed to make any reasonable income, decide to move out and live at an old and isolated house which they inherited from their father. The house was in a poor shape and the brothers soon find out that the house was made by the famous French architect, LaRue and is worth millions. They decide to restore the house and auction it and split the income in half. During their restoration process, they come across an unknown resident of the house, a mouse. The mouse is determined to throw the intruders out of his mansion and the brothers want to do precisely the same. The movie at first glance seems to be a laugh riot, but as it progresses you realise you're badly mistaken. The movie tries very hard to get you to laugh and the performance of Lane and Evans isn't too exciting either. The movies humour is based on tried and tested jokes which don't make you laugh anymore. Your kid brother might have a good time but you definitely wont.

Thumbs up: The smart mouse if anything else isn't
Thumbs down: Bad humour, even worse performance

Rating: 4.5/10
