We gave it a B+

Stuart the philosopher rodent here becomes a cute-as-a-button CGI creation (ably voiced by Michael J. Fox) in this retelling of the E.B. White classic about a human family with a mouse child. Sure, the film downplays the book’s lyrical poignance in favor of cartoon-bright special effects and cat-and-mouse high jinks, but that’s exactly what will appeal to Nickelodeon-pumped little viewers.
