For a film industry determined to open itself to a diversity of voices, this is very much a safe, back-to-basics play for British audiences in need of some reliable comfort food.
This is high adventure in safe hands.
The film’s pleasures are simple – soaring landscapes, old-school DIY adventure and some sweet performances by the child actors. It makes for a charmingly old-fashioned family adventure.

Did You Know?
- The book's character, Titty, was based on a real girl who used it as a nickname. She got the nickname from the poem about "Titty and Tatty Mouse". The filmmakers decided to change the name to the other mouse.
- Mr Jackson (Harry Enfield) is frequently shown with a pipe in his mouth yet the pipe never appears to never be lit as we do not see him puffing on the pipe or smoke arising from it. Whilst this could be said to show a 21st century sensibility towards smoking in a childrens film we do however see a character smoking a cigarette at Portsmouth railway station earlier on.
