Excellent musical numbers and score, fairly great animation, John Cleese voicing the villain ... but unfortunately a rather mediocre, limping story that brings the sum total a bit down. ( )

This was supposed to be like Fiddler on the Roof but with mice. Other than they are Russians, how is this the same? I see that there is one small bit of Hebrew/Yiddish characters when they are in mourning for Fievel. Otherwise there is no real discussion about them being Jewish (plus methinks a Jewish boy would have listened to his mother more). Fiddler is in Russia, this is in the US. This story can be like any other story about immigrants during that time.
