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.

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).

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"Between Fievel getting separated from his family, with the cats attacking the mice, Fievel getting tossed overboard, and the giant mouse at the end of the film, there are a lot of jarring moments. But it all turns, okay in the end even after everything has happened during the movie, especially all of the close calls between Fievel and trying to find his parents."

Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (165 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"
