Young Luke and his grandmother, on vacation in England, have just checked into a hotel.

Charming and enjoyable. I was quite impressed by how they did the little talking mice. The witches conference scene was very well done as well.

Decent, though it departs a fair bit from the classic Roald Dahl novel.

I watch this movie every year at Halloween. I enjoy the story very much. The story is well written and the acting above average. The young protagonist is very photogenic and keeps his humanity intact even after being turned into a mouse. The witches seem to enjoy being witches very much.
