More Detail:

THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE is a welcome re-issue of the 1986 Walt Disney delight, which ranks among the most entertaining of the studio’s animated films. Set in London in 1893, THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE features the ingenious Basil of Baker Street, who lives under the residence of Sherlock Holmes and emulates the great sleuth’s remarkable powers of deduction. Requesting his help is young Olivia, whose toymaker father has been kidnapped by the evil Ratigan. This villainous rat intends to foist a mechanical Mouse Queen on London’s mice, whom he will thus rule with an iron paw. Basil, with the assistance of portly Dr. Dawson and an enormous bloodhound borrowed from Mr. Holmes, cleverly tracks down Olivia’s father at Ratigan’s hideout. Unfortunately, all are captured by the rat. Their escape is topped by an exciting battle between Basil and Ratigan amidst the clockwork maze of Big Ben.

THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE works at multiple levels of sophistication, including a number of gags which only adults will appreciate. The pacing, characterizations and music are first rate. Far more entertaining than most contemporary movies, this film is well worth seeing even if one can’t locate a child to bring along.
