Fun kids film about a family of tiny people who live under the floorboards of a house and their mini-war with the unlikeable lawyer resident who's trying to exterminate them.
The children's books are adapted to the big screen quite well, with some good visual effects to add to the adventure and comedy.
An entertaining family flick which will be particularly enjoyed by the little ones.
