At first I was a bit nonplussed, but it all seemed to come together when I saw it alongside "Dick Cheney in a Cold, Dark Cell."

My gerbil bit me so I let it go in the Boston fen-ways. It's sometimes hard to tell freedom from punishment.

Profundity comes from the simplest of earth's creatures.

As forewarned, one can't un-see it, but glad I did. Can't say the same about, say, Scrapple.

I will try to watch it a few more times so as to effectively counter any memories of that infamously fictitious image involving one of my favorite actors, Mr. Gere. After all these years I realize now I have been very unfair about my opinion of this fine creature.

This is stupid and amateurish. I can easily "un-see" this.

Much like the Wunterspringmaus, I am very happy.

2 minutes too long.

ummm....no

Well, I watched this again and changed my review from one star. It's still a bit simplistic in my view, but I did enjoy it far more the second time. Nothing of great merit here, but an oddity worth viewing.

Didn't like it.

like mothers milk, but celluloid and rodent. and still can't get the rhythm out of my cha-cha heels

well it didn't take long . . .

yay for gerbils

Unique

Loved the little mouse.....

I thought it was from Syria, but I guess that's the hamster?

Ummm....yeah...?

meh. I would have left the capitalist BS out.

dumb

odd

i've seen better

Wüstenspringmaus was a story about Wüstenspringmaus, that is all.

Weirdly funny.

I will watch this many times. In a row even.

Delightful!

WÜSTENSPRINGMAUS is one of those films I find incredibly funny but cannot articulate why. "The wustenspringmaus is like a summer rain..." Genius!
