Mousehunt (1997)

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.
