* NoIndoorVoice: Ernie. Nathan Lane's voice actor in Brazil said the movie was his hardest work ever because Ernie yells so much he barely had a voice after each day recording the dubbing.

'''[[Creator/ChristopherWalken Caesar]]''': Sure. That's how you perceive it. But to that mouse, ''you'' are the intruder.

* EveryoneHasStandards: The brothers did not have the heart to kill the mouse while he's unconscious (and hate themselves because of him) so they had him deported. [[TheCatCameBack The mouse still found his way back]], but [[ThrowTheDogABone throws the two a bone]] after their plans literally blow up.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Right off the bat, we know Lars is more doting toward their father as at the funeral, he gets on Ernie for not keeping the casket level, and is genuinely worried when their father's corpse gets lost in the sewer. Ernie, on the other had is outwardly indifferent. His only interest is wondering what shade of black Lars' jacket it, and when the body lands in the sewer, he gives out a meek "Ah, well."

Nathan Lane and Lee Evans are Ernie and Lars Smuntz, brothers with a recently deceased ruined father. In his will, he leaves them "the future of string" -- a SteamPunk string factory with NoOSHACompliance -- and a seemingly worthless Victorian mansion. Oh, and some spoons, a half box of cigars, and a ceramic egg. But then the duo discovers that the abandoned house could be worth millions if it were renovated. Unfortunately for them, the place is already inhabited by a single rodent and it ain't leaving. HilarityEnsues as the clever mouse thwarts the brothers' increasingly elaborate {{Zany Scheme}}s to kill it, all while they have to deal with improbable house payments and the string factory's revolting employees.

* AllClothUnravels: Lars ends up {{naked|PeopleAreFunny}} when he tries to run the family string factory. For the practical effect to work, the clothing unraveling had to be knit, and knit upside down. See [[http://www.knittingtipsbyjudy.com/cel2.html here]] for pictures.

** Catzilla is portrayed as being such a good mouse hunter because it's psychotic.

* 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.

** There are hints throughout the film that not only is the mouse very old but also more than just a trickster. Notably, Ernie comments on its culinary expertise in properly toasting a sandwich (thinking Caesar had made it).

* HumanMail: Unable to kill the mouse after catching it, the brothers ultimately mail it to Cuba. It gets sent back due to insufficient postage.

* KillerRabbit: The mouse. The last owner of the house before Rudolf Smuntz was found dead locked in a trunk in the attic. Later, the ambulance picks up Caesar the exterminator halfway through the film. He was found the same way, except it's implied this time ''the mouse'' called 911. Not to mention the rest of the stuff it does to Caesar and the Smuntz brothers.

* 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 of them]]. Cue EpicFail as the mouse shows them just how intelligent he is.

* MsFanservice: April in her lingerie with her bare shoulders showing and her hair loose with a little hat on.



* NoYou: The brothers' big argument is filled with these. Lars snarls that he betrayed him by trying to sell the factory behind his back, while Ernie snarls back that ''he'' betrayed ''him'' by keeping those deals secret when they had equal ownership in the first place. Lars complains Ernie blew up half the building trying to shoot the mouse, which Ernie points out Lars screamed at him to do. Ernie hates Lars, well Lars hates Ernie.

*** Also, when Catzilla smashes out of its box, it roars like Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. Rather apropos, given the cat's name.

Imagine if you were to create a comedic movie that's a cross between ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' and ''Film/HomeAlone'', have it star what looks like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]] (or Creator/LaurelAndHardy) as the protagonists, set it in a RetroUniverse of the 30's/40's and today, and for good measure, give ChristopherWalken an extended cameo. The result would be this film.
