The Great Mouse Detective, Mystery in the Mist

Alanna is into scary movies lately.  Nothing too scary, but kid scary like Coraline, or The Witches. 

When I was offered the opportunity to watch The Great Mouse Detective, I jumped on it because I knew Alanna would love it.

The story takes place in London in 1897.  The evil Professor Ratigan kidnaps the toymaker.  The toymakers daughter Olivia is left behind, and befriends a Mr Dawson.  Together they seek out Basil of Baker Street.  He is the Sherlock Holmes of all of Mousedom.

When Olivia is taken by Ratigan to persuade her father to preform the evil plan against the Queen of Mousedom, Dawson and Basil must work together to save both the toymaker and his daughter.

After the movie Alanna looked at me and said, "I didn't think they would be able to save her, momma, they did and thats a great movie." 

The movie, The Great Mouse Detective is digitally restored and has special bonus features.

If you have a suspense seeker or a Sherlock Holmes on your hand, this movie would be great for all ages.
