This film is not worth seeing...
Watching the opening credits I was impressed with the voice
talent. There are several top actors listed: Matthew Broderick, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Kline, Christopher Lloyd, William H. Macy, Tracey Ullman, & Sigourney Weaver. One would prepare one’s self for an impressive film. This is a case where the trailers are better than the actual film and where there is a ton of talent, but the material does not match.
The story starts out with narration about Despereaux but then the action begins focused on a rat, which is totally confusing. The rat attends a town festival celebrating soup and gets left behind by his shipmates. Anyway, about 20 minutes into the movie it finally gets around to Despereaux. Who is an unusual mouse because he isn't full of fear, like other mice. The only cool thing about the movie is the cat. Wait until it comes out on video and then rent it, don't buy it. I even found myself dozing off at several points in the film.
