    Cannily weaving cross-cultural comedy with we-can-do-it humor in the spirit of "The Full Monty," the film builds to a rousing climax.

    Such astounding computer-generated effects you'll suspend disbelief and root for the hero, a 3-inch talking mouse.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Altman and Rapp skirt the fine line between satire and caricature, stopping just short of ridiculing the women who pack Dr. T's office.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Strictly a love it-or-hate-it proposition, it requires viewers to work at a movie with a narrative that could support at least half a dozen interpretations.

    Williams triumphs by exceeding both in sheer actor's craft - and the depths he plumbs in his character's tortured soul.

    A real high in a season filled with unfunny comedies.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
