It’s Rodent Against Men In Inventive, Cute Comedy ‘Mouse Hunt’

An inventive, visually dazzling comedy, "Mouse Hunt" is full of surprises. In its ads, "Mouse Hunt" looks a lot like "Home Alone," but it owes more to Buster Keaton and to Terry Gilliam's "Brazil." Instead of sledgehammer sight gags or irony-drenched dialogue, "Mouse Hunt's" humor is based in the yin/yang of exaggeration and delicate timing: Nathan Lane delaying his reaction when a house collapses around him, the bewildered Lee Evans watching his suit disappear when threads from his clothes get snagged in six turbine engines, or a mouse pirouetting through a room full of traps.
