Mouse Hunt (1997)
Although it ends up being a bit too much and too fast, Mouse Hunt is for almost its entire running time a fine piece of film. Directed by newcomer Gore Verbinski, the film looks vintage and behaves like a classic with great vigour, colours and tone. Nathan Lane displays his unique comic talent (and leading man industry) in the lead, and the mouse is portrayed brilliantly - both from a technical and an artistic level. This is a film that knows exactly how stupid to be - expect for in the last few scenes. The highlight of the film comes with Christopher Walken who brings a hilarious character to life.
