YMMV / Stuart Little

  • Critical Dissonance: The sequel film actually earned better reviews from critics than the first film (81% on Rotten Tomatoes and 66/100 on Metacritic, versus 66% and 61/100 for the first film), but ended up grossing much less than the first film at the box office.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: In the second movie, Stuart takes on a peregrine falcon in an Alleged Plane and wins - by using the stolen wedding ring own ring to throw off his stoop, and then using an aerial version of Car Fu on him.
  • Ending Aversion: The original book, by way of No Ending.
  • Fridge Horror: In the books, Stuart is born to human parents, making him a severely deformed human being who resembles a mouse. Yikes.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Stuart nearly drowning in the Washing Machine.
  • Sequelitis: Averted with the second film, which is seen as just as good as, if not better than the first film. Played straight with the third which, while better-animated than the TV series and bringing back most of the actors from the films to voice their characters, was seen to be pretty lackluster.
  • Tear Jerker: A mild one, but Margalo flying south for the winter for the first time.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: A non-acting example: The first film so happened to be co-written by one M. Night Shyamalan. Yes, that one.
