The Borrowers


Shades of ''Home Alone'' and ''Mouse Hunt'' here in this 'family' movie. A mean nasty lawyer swindles a nice family out of their home. However, he did not know about the 'borrowers' - a family of 4 inch (10 cm) midgets that also lived in the house. This family decides to see that justice is done and outwit the lawyer, so that the rightful owners can return. Expect lots of slapstick humour, some of it gross.
