MPAA Rating: PG

Michael J. Fox reprises his role as the voice of the mouse who joined the human Little family as a full-fledged member. This time the Littles have a new baby girl named Martha, and Stuart meets a little bird named Margalo (voiced by Melanie Griffith). Margalo is being harassed by a falcon named Falcon (voiced by James Woods) and Stuart, with the help of the reluctant cat Snowbell (voiced by Nathan Lane) does his best to prove that even the littlest Little can be brave. Also with Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie and Jonathan Lipnicki. [1:15]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A man and woman kiss in a TV movie. We see a married couple in bed together a couple of times, and one time the man switches off the light after making a romantic remark. A woman is shown in a nightgown that reveals cleavage and she wears other outfits that reveal cleavage and bare shoulders. A man and woman talk about a boy mouse being smitten and having a crush on a girl bird. A girl bird rests her head on the shoulder of a boy mouse.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A falcon grabs a mouse, the mouse shoots an arrow at the falcon but it bounces off his beak, the falcon drops the mouse off the top of a building and the mouse lands in a garbage truck. A mouse's parachute is cut in half and a bird catches him before he hits the ground. A falcon and a toy plane crash together in mid-air. A cat is stuck in a paint can that rolls to the ledge of a very tall building; it then rolls off, falls, catches onto a flagpole, it is knocked off, lands on the street below and is nearly hit by a car. A falcon crashes through a glass popcorn cart, grabs a toy plane, takes it high into the sky, pulls a wing off the plane and lets it go and the plane nearly crashes into the ground. A bird is grabbed out of the sky by a falcon and is imprisoned inside a paint can. A falcon falls into a garbage can and a cat eyes him as lunch. A falcon chases a bird, which is snatched out of the sky by a mouse in a toy plane. A mouse floats in a balloon to the top of a very tall building and jumps onto the beak of a decorative cement bird. A mouse dangles from a string and hook and is lowered down a sink drain, the string breaks and he falls down farther. A man throws a cat into a dumpster. A bird falls from the sky and lands in a moving toy car driven by a mouse; the car drives recklessly as they are chased by a falcon -- they are nearly run over when they drive under a truck. A falcon threatens a mouse several times (to eat him), and a cat asks, "can I eat him?" about a mouse. A mouse flies a model plane through a house recklessly nearly hitting two boys, a cat and a woman, as he flies out the front door and into a park where he flies toward a group of people and crashes (we see the wreckage of the plane on the ground). A boy is charged by other boys during a soccer game, a boy is hit in the stomach by a soccer ball, a boy is hit in the head by a soccer ball and a mouse is carried through the air by a kicked soccer ball and he ends up dangling upside down from a net. A mouse skateboards; he flies over a ramp and ends up landing head first in a flowerpot. A mouse falls down some stairs and a newspaper lands on top of him. A cat eats a fly, and a cat coughs up a fur ball. A cat describes what happens to you after you are dropped from the sky. A taxi is driven recklessly.

PROFANITY 1 - 3 mild scatological terms, 1 mild-mild obscenity and some insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Friendship, bravery, guilt, being different, being lonely, adventures, scams, orphans, accomplishments, dreams, parental over-protectiveness, Moses and the burning bush, giving up, lying, promises, inter-species romance.

Our Ratings Explained

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.
