* BerserkButton: During an argument Ernie finally flips out when Lars says he can't cook. Ernie used to be a quite competent chef so his reaction is kinda justified.

* AmusingInjuries: The whole movie is built on "What if 'TomAndJerry' was live-action? And everything actually ''hurt''?"

* CatsAreMean: Catzilla is the pet of your nightmares. It's apparently unkillable (they tried gassing it at least once in the animal shelter), permanently kept in a sealed container because it's so vicious and is portrayed as a Franchise/{{Godzilla}}-like monster from the mouse's perspective. In fact, when Ernie puts the box down Catzilla's paws punch through the wood with ease and walk around with Catzilla still inside, just so it can hide outside the mousehole. When the mouse investigates, it breaks out of its container, and ''roars'' like Godzilla.
** Making it all the more impressive when the mouse proceeds to BreakTheBadass.

* MouseHole
MouseHole: The mouse retreats into one at every opportunity, usually to inflict some misfortune on whoever or whatever dares to follow him in.
* MouseTrap: This is the first attempt to get rid of the mouse. They find the trap sprung and the olive pit left behind. Undaunted, Ernie goes for his good cheese to bait the next one. The mouse steals the entire wheel while the two are busy waiting for it to spring the trap. Finally, they go for broke and set up [[UpToEleven Hundreds hundreds of them.]]
them]]. Cue EpicFail as the mouse shows them just how intelligent he is.
* NailEmNailEm: Lars nearly kills the mouse by accident as he's nailing in some wooden trim along the floor. Lucky for the mouse, Ernie provides a distraction.

Given its odd combination of {{Slapstick}} and BlackComedy in a RetroUniverse setting, the movie will probably become a CultClassic one of these days. Don't confuse it with the {{Facebook}} [[MouseHunt app]].

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Lars' wife April, who outright states that she is not content being "middle class" and angrily tosses Lars out of the house when he refuses an offer for his father's string factory. She only comes back to him upon learning of the auction for the valuable house he's staying at, having the audacity to cuss out Ernie when the house nearly sells for ''eight million'' just before the bid goes up; she ultimately makes off with one of the millionaires, not giving a second thought of Lars.

* DownerBeginning: The movie starts with the Smuntz brother's accidentally dropping their father's corpse down a sewer drain on the day of his funeral. [[FromBadToWorse It goes downhill from there, and that's all before they even meet the infamous mouse.]]

This was the 1997 directorial debut of Creator/GoreVerbinski, who later gave us the ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' films and ''{{Rango}}''. This was also one of the first movies released by a fledgling little company called Creator/DreamWorks and the one which established their rivalry with Creator/{{Disney}}. One wonders if they made the film center around a mouse just to be ironic.
