An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991)

 

MPW-73451

A family of Emigre mice decide to move out to the west, unaware that they are falling into a trap perpetrated by a smooth talking cat. (IMDb)

The main story is as kiddish and small as its protagonist, but fun and exciting journey sequences (Fievel’s train and eagle ride; Tiger’s dog-filled misadventure), clever pun-filled dialogue (“Dog-gone it, I’m dog tired… fightin’ like cats and dogs against cats and dogs”), and delightfully nonsensical humour (“Dogfish…”) make this film enjoyable for adults too. Wylie’s surprisingly mature final speech (“One man’s sunset is another man’s dawn”) is another appreciable moment.

6.1/10
