Twice the fun, double the trouble. Zach & Brandon revisit the film their sisters had in heavy rotation back in the day.

Why did this upper-class family choose to waste their resources on adopting a rodent instead of the many children at the orphanage in desperate need of care? Why does this family look as though they live in a Wes Anderson movie in late-90's New York? Why does no one react to this talking mouse like a rational human?
