Mouse Hunt (1997) DVD Approx. 1 hr 38 min. (with optional English subtitles) Color
Starring: Nathan Lane, Lee Evans, Maury Chaykin, Christopher Walken, Vicki Lewis, William Hickey, Eric Christmas and Michael Jeter. Written by Adam Rifkin. Directed by Gore Verbinski.
Two brothers (Nathan Lane and Lee Evans) inherit a string factory and a decaying country home after the death of their father (the late William Hickey, in his last role). After moving in, they learn that the house has historical architectural importance and is valued in the millions. However, they are constantly tormented by a mouse within the walls. They engage in cartoon-like combat against the rodent, but it manages to outwit the brothers in successive situations. Both live and animatronic mice portray the title role, and some scenes assume the mouse's point of view.
The film is dedicated to William Hickey.
