    more from this reviewer

    A movie parents can appreciate

    Although this film did not do well in theatres it is a well acted and scripted movie for kids and adults alike. It reminds the viewer about friendship and finding joy in life and the inquisitive and believing nature of children. It has many underlying messages but most important is to believe in yourself. A good message for anyone.

    Outstanding Movie!

    Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is a wonderful film for the entire family, charming and engaging, while curiously touching and compelling. And, of course, Natalie Portman is as wonderful as she was in her role as Padme Amadala in Star Wars.

    Wonderful movie for children of any age.

    I loved Dustin Hoffman as the eccentric Emporium owner. It was a majical two hours with my niece. I loved it so much at the theater that I bought it for our collection.

    A reviewer

    Cheesy headlines aside, this movie is incredible! It's been awhile since a movie has given me a "magical" feeling, seeing how I am 18 years-old, but this movie is just amazing. It's child humor still makes me laugh. I already have it on my iPod and I'll be purchasing it just to compliment their work. This isn't the usual movie I'd want to see, in fact, I didn't want to see it, but I highly recommend this.

    complete waste of time

    I thought it was really dumb. There were a couple of funny parts, but overall, it was pointless. I wasted at least two hours of my life that I can never get back. The movie was cheesy, annoying, and I don't want to waste any more time talking about it.
