Patronizing and predictable where E.B. White's episodic 1945 book...is odd and open-ended.

What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
This isn't your father's Stuart Little, but youngsters will be delighted. Mostly.
A treat for the eyes and the heart.
It's (Stuart's) utter believability that lets us follow him into the ecstasy of absurdity that is the rest of the film.
Parents, who are more apt to be bored by the simple story line, are going to be amazed nevertheless by the smooth, convincing animation that lends Stuart his lifelike physicality and expressive facial gestures.
The other, unintentional lesson taught here is that it's easier to make a mouse talk than to come up with something interesting for him to say.
Boring, irksome family movie.
Such astounding computer-generated effects you'll suspend disbelief and root for the hero, a 3-inch talking mouse.
Its hero upstages anything the plot can possibly come up with.
Sustains a lovely balance between enchantment and playfulness.
