When a note in a bottle from a little girl named Penny (Michelle Stacy) came into the hands of a group of mice called the Rescue Aid Society, Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor) was the first to volunteer. She, along with a janitor named Bernard (Bob Newhart), set off to save the girl in “The Rescuers.”
The “Rescuers” series has never been my favorite Disney work. I think both movies are off mark in one way or another. They’re both well done and somewhat groundbreaking in their own aspects, but I can’t see myself caring whether my kids ever see them like I do with a lot of other Disney movies.
The main problem I have with this one is the music. It’s horribly dated. The sort of music that’s in here is only heard in elevators today. I think it’s good music, but I don’t like it and I don’t even think it fits with the movie. It’s soft and mellow, which I believe contradicts the actual mood of the movie. It’s probably just me though.
“The Rescuers” just isn’t my thing I guess. You might enjoy it, and I recommend it to Disney fans, but I probably won’t be watching it much now that I’ve reviewed it.
Final Score: 6.6/10
