Stuart Little is a film series about an American meglomaniac professor, Professor Stuart Little, played by British actor Hugh Laurie. Little is a normal scientist who when his fellow scientists leave out of protest Little finds himself alone, with a colony of rats. The rats and Little go through many a year of experimentation before finally Little finishes work on creating an extensive rat army. With this army he plans to take revenge on his ex-collegues from his dark, dank cave dungeon, and in turn, take over the world.
The Box Office
The first "Start Little" film was a phenominal hit when it was released in 1999, especially in Laurie's home country Britain where all his work is praised with upmost reverance. In America the psychological thriller aspect confused many citizens, but was praised by critics who saw it as a turning point for the genre. In Britain the film took £28 Million (the equivalent to about $368 Billion) in it's first week, and continued like this for several more weeks after release, whereas in america the film wildly fluctuated from state to state taking $3.57 in Alaska and a astonishing $72 Million in California alone (though this is probably due to thousands of those in California having worked on the film).
