Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

It's a live-action comedy in the tradition of "Tom & Jerry," with 2 humans versus an adorable little mouse.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo. A man puts his hand down a woman's blouse to catch a mouse. He keeps moving his hand around her bosom for a while and she seems to react positively. Another woman grabs another man's hand and puts it his down her own blouse. He also seems to react positively. A woman lies on a desk as her naked husband approaches (with a strategically placed ball of twine); obviously pre-coital but nothing else seen.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Played for laughs, slapstick-type violence: falls, chases, objects falling and hitting people, scuffles, lots of property destruction. Two men hit each other with hammers, brooms, get snapped with mouse traps and accidentally set a woman's hair on fire. An obese man in a restaurant has a heart attack and dies. A cat walks through a field of mouse traps (offscreen) and cries in agony as the traps cling to each foot.

PROFANITY 2 - An anatomical reference, a few mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Brothers and inheritance, property destruction, mice and cruelty towards animals.

MESSAGE - Live and let live.

Special Keywords: S3 - V3 - P2 - MPAAPG

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
