Disgusting looking, awfully unfunny, poorly shot mess. I had no intention of seeing Matilda, even if I did like the novel, but I wasn't expecting it to be this cringe-worthy... god this is cringe-worthy disaster of a family film with really unlikable characters. This is a reminder of why Gremlins and The Goonies were so good, they had realistic characters, interesting plots and most of all, laughs. This film has none of those. This is like a 90s Cat In The Hat (film). Please skip it. Out.
