Mousehunt (1997)

Two stumblebum inheritors are determined to rid their antique house of a mouse who is equally determined to stay where he is. (IMDb)
Does well to expand itself beyond the titular antics (which are undoubtedly hilarious-see the mouse on the cheese wheel, bathtub ride): Ernie and Lars have great chemistry and banter in between the slapstick moments and the other straight-laced elements (firing, falling out, failing factory, financial woes) give a real sense of stakes. Would’ve been cool if the quirky Coen brothers-esque edge was strengthened though, even if just by ending it at the auction disaster and before the cheese.
7/10 (Good)
