You dont notice how clever this film is untill you watch it as an adult. On a childish level..ooh look mice are wearing hats; but on an adult level it is a sophisticated representation of cultural conflict, racism and immigration.

A family of Russian mice emmigrate to America, fleeing cats. Labouring under the misconception that;

I loved this movie when I was a kid and still like it now. For starters it's cute. It's also short and sweet with lots of moral lessons in it which is perfect for young audiences with short attention spans.
The only real hang up I have is that the Russian mice don't always sound Russian, well that's the adults anyway and the young mice don't sound Russian at all, but I'm sure kids aren't go... read more

Following the critical success of The Secret of NIMH comes American Tail, which was created with Steven Spielberg's help (protagonist Fievel was named after Spielberg's great-grandfather). As a result, this movie raked in a haul at the box office thanks to audiences that enjoyed it, but the critical reception from Siskel and Ebert was a little frosty.

Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (69 movies items)

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★½ NOTES: A few shots looked cloned, most of the changeover cuts destroyed several transitions and there were a few brief frame cuts that in particular botched one of Henri’s ‘never’s, but a good print for what you’d expect nonetheless. Cut out the Don Bluth logo but did keep in the rating card, the full Universal logo, the Amblin logo and the Universal Studios bumper, basically everything the Land Before Time print forgot to include. DATE: August 11"
