The Borrowers (1997)

PG 02/13/1998 (US) AdventureFantasyActionComedyFamily 1h 26m

Little People. Big Trouble. Lots of fun.


The four-inch-tall Clock family secretly share a house with the normal-sized Lender family, "borrowing" such items as thread, safety pins, batteries and scraps of food. However, their peaceful co-existence is disturbed when evil lawyer Ocious P. Potter steals the will granting title to the house, which he plans to demolish in order to build apartments. The Lenders are forced to move, and the Clocks face the risk of being exposed to the normal-sized world.
