About the Movie

The clues are in, the chase is on, and the case of the century is about to break wide open in Disney's greatest little mystery in history! Let the creators of Aladdin and The Little Mermaid take you on an adventuresome journey through the cobblestone streets of 1897 London, where some suspicious "mousechief" is the suspenseful start to this thrilling musical adventure. Olivia, the brave daughter of a beloved London toymaker, turns to Basil of Baker Street for help with her father's disappearance. Basil's jolly assistant, Dr. Dawson, and loyal dog Toby lend a hand ... and nose ... as they sniff out clues through their charming miniature world. The final chase leads to Professor Ratigan (voiced by Vincent Price), a hard-hearted criminal whom Basil must outwit to save all of Mousedom!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Small children may be afraid of some of the bad characters -- the Disney Studio's gift for creating really nasty bad guys means that they are scary -- but they will love the cute, brave mice and cheer their triumphs. Adults will enjoy the wit and style. – Nina Darnton, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It's a lot of fun. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: As usual with film noir, however, it is the villain who steals the heart and one is rooting for in the breathtaking showdown high up in the cogs and ratchets of Big Ben. – Time Out, Nov 16, 2009

A great movie!

As I launched iunes 7 on it's release day, I was hopeful and doubtful this movie that I've been looking for would be on here. But was I ever pleasantly surprised! I love this movie, start to finish. It was somewhat dark yet still fun, great animation and voice acting, and a cute story that will make you laugh for years to come. Definitely my favorite children's movie, and probably one of my favorites ever.

A Fantastic Film

The title tells all.

Great Movie

Very good movie, it really is up there in quality of plot and entertainment. If you're looking for something for your child that isn't so overdone and flashy like the A.D.D. giving movies you find in the theatres now, you would love this movie.
