A Knoxville-native mouse, disclosed only as â€˜Jerry’ by court-appointed lawyers, filed a lawsuit on July 26th alleging that the movie â€˜Stuart Little II’ was harmful to his health.
Hours after attending the movie that he reportedly looked forward to for weeks, even saving his allowance to take the entire family, â€˜Jerry’ rushed out to play as if he was Stuart himself. Flying around in a toy airplane and driving a remote control car went well, but it appears that playing soccer is simply outside the realm of mouse-human relations.
Although portions of the film were clearly handled by a stunt rat, no disclosures were made pointing out that a mouse should not play like Stuart at home. â€˜Jerry’s’ legal counsel quickly points out that when humans are making a movie they simply cannot know how it will look in the eyes of a young mouse and all possible precautions should be taken to avoid such accidents.
On a positive note, â€˜Jerry’ is expected to heal completely. A single soccer cleat punctured his lungs and mangled his testicles but he should be walking like new within 6-8 weeks.
