What's fun is the carefree way the animators swing through their story, using the freedom of the cartoon form to blend 19th century realism with images that seem borrowed from more recent special-effects pictures. For a long time, I was down on the full-length animated efforts of Disney and others, because they didn't seem to reflect the same sense of magic and wonderment that the original animated classics always had. Who, for example, could ever equate "101 Dalmatians" (1991) with "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"? But now, maybe thanks to computers, animated movies are beginning to sparkle again. It's a lot of fun.Click here to read the full review
Parents need to know that The Great Mouse Detective is a Disney tribute to Sherlock Holmes that has potentially frightening themes such as kidnapping, blackmail, and world domination. Although it's rated G, it does feature a menacing evil genius who wants to kill the reigning Mouse Queen and uses his creepy henchman bat to commit crimes. There are also a couple of cartoon-violence scenes (a pub brawl and a climactic duel) and notable drinking/smoking scenes. But for young tweens -- especially those interested in detective mysteries -- this should be a fun bet.Click here to read the full review
Yet another shining example of how Disney seems to side-step the EPA rating system. A female mouse does a kiddy strip-tease in a Bar, and there is some pretty intense violence between Ratigan and Bassil. Not to mention multiple instances of the characters dinking alcoholic beverages and getting drunk. There is a fair amount of smoking as well. This is a PG-13 movie in my opinion. The show has some appeals on a kiddy level, but overall it is a most predictable which makes it very forgettable. Forgetting this mediocre Disney flick would be a good idea.October 3rd, 2011 · Details
