  • Rating: G
The Don Bluth-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced An American Tail, a lighthearted animated look at immigrants, comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, respectively. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a singalong section for the film's famous song "Somewhere Out There" and a handful of interactive games to entertain children. While the disc offers nothing of interest for those who want to learn about the animation process, kids will enjoy the extras on this Universal release. The DVD was released the same day as three of the film's sequels, including the theatrically released An American Tail: Fievel Goes West.

    Synopsis


    An American Tail
    An American Tail is a beautifully rendered animated flim that tells an overly familiar story in terms children can easily understand. Fievel Mousekewitz and his family of Russian-Jewish mice escape from their homeland in the late 1800s, boarding a boat headed toward America to evade the Czarist rule of the Russian cats. Fievel, however, is separated from his family upon his arrival in New York City, and he discovers to his horror that there are cats in America too (his father said there weren't). Fievel meets his share of friendly and hostile mice, and he eventually befriends a cat as well. Former Disney animator Don Bluth co-produced and directed this often heartwarming yarn, the first animated feature presented by Steven Spielberg, and it has its charms despite a number of cliché situations. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

      Love the movie, but I didn't give it 5 stars because I bought it 'cuz it came with a digital copy. Didn't have an expiration date for the digital copy on the package. I had to look it up online. Expired in 12/17. I bought it May 2018. Its great if you just want the physical disc and don't care for digital movies.

      To tell the truth, I secretly bought this for myself, since I love the song "Somewhere out there". But now that I have grandchildren, it really is for them. A little bit scary, a little bit sad for the young ones but they still liked it. And it ends well.

      I remember this movie Very fondly from my own childhood and wanted to share it with my little ankle-biters as well. I was not disappointed with their reaction at all, they loved it too. They especially appreciated the sing-along that was part of the bonus features on this DVD.

      The song "Somewhere Out There" is probably more popular than the film itself. But Bluth's animations always hold a special place in my heart. Picture quality slightly better than DVD and the only two extras are the song and a trailer. What a let down. But the animation is still worth the purchase.

      This is a classic that I'm excited to share with my kids. It's a movie I enjoyed thoroughly when I was a child and I know we're going to be singing "there are noooo cats in America...." Primarily excited that for $5, this also comes with the digital, Ultraviolet version as well.

      An American Tale is such a great movie that kids of all ages would love. It has a deeper meaning of showing what a strong loving family is meant to be that even all adult ages would love and appreciate the family values being portrayed!!!

      Growing up I thought this movie had it all when it came to showing kids the morals and values of life, and I still do. New and old generations can enjoy this classic and will not be disappointed with introducing this movie to anyone.

      Was my son's favorite movie as a child. Looking forward to sharing it with him again. The lessons about treating each other fairly no matter what your background need to be revisited today
