Charlotte's Web
The Bugs Bunny Roadrunner Movie
Scrooged (To interest cats in watching TV, Francis X. Cross casts a mouse as a reindeer in his Christmas special.)

(Also, fwiw, Who Framed Roger Rabbit didn't have a question mark at the end.)

Don't recall the movie too well, but I figured that there would be rats on board, which would likely appear in some form at some point. (Is Anchors Aweigh in the same category?) There have probably been hundreds of movies where rats or other vermin have been seen briefly just scurrying around. The intent was to not include those, but we're not keeping score, so it isn't all that important where the line is drawn.

Well, they were used as a plot mover (and quippy one liner) in Titanic; couldn't have the line without the rats.

As far as Anchors Aweigh...

All works for me.

Good! I was wondering how long it would take for Charlotte's Web to come up. :) That's actually the last one on my list of more obvious answers.

If Donnie Darko counts, how about the House Bunny? Legally Blonde? (Reese at the "costume party")

OK to pile on more than 3 now? If so....
[spoiler]The Lost Weekend - Ray Milland's character's hallucination/DT-induced dream involves a mouse creeping out of a hole in the wall
The Princess Bride (ROUS's - you know, Rodents Of Unusual Size)
Shrek - the three blind mice
Babes in Toyland (Laurel and Hardy version)- one of the citizens of Toyland was a Mickey Mouse ripoff who bombed the attackers from the air (don't know why Disney didn't sue - or maybe it did)
1984 (rats used to torture Winston Smith)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - rats in Venetian mausoleum
Not sure if it was a big enough scene, but in Raiders of the Lost Ark a mouse was zapped by the crated ark[/spoiler]

Okay, here's an obscure one... Being a silent-movie nut, I've seen this a good number of times.

The Rat's Knuckles (1925)

Charley Chase (as his "Jimmy Jump" character) has invented a better mouse trap... A HUMANE one! The full movie is 11 minutes long, but here's an even shorter version: The video is 8 minutes, what is shown of the movie after the intro is about 7 minutes.

Many of my favorite gags, including the entire "We're gonna get rich" dream sequence, are missing from this edit. The ending, where "Jimmy" reveals how his "fabulous" invention works, is very much intact.

No, shorts were purposely excluded, as there are probably a zillion of those. In a moment of weakness, I listed the silent short.

Apparently so, http://www.amazon.com/Runaway-Ralph/dp/B00366E1B4, but not as a theatrical release.
