The Last Mimzy (2007)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Last Mimzy makes efforts to be a fun children's movie, but unsuccessfully juggles too many genres and subplots -- eventually settling as an unfocused, slightly dull affair.

New Line powerbroker/director Robert Shaye has made a children's film for stoners, a trippy, psychedelic fable that belongs in the DVD section of New Age bookstores alongside the strangely similar What The Fuck Do We Know?

It's refreshing to be reminded that an intelligent, exciting family movie isn't always an oxymoron.

Occasionally arresting ideas and a non-condescending attitude to its pre-teen protagonists give this more character than many effects-driven family fantasies, even if it's ultimately too wonky in construction to sweep us along convincingly.

I don't know. I just really liked the Alice in Wonderland references.

The Last Mimzy is a more family-oriented version of "Donnie Darko". They both have to do with the future and they both have characters that are rabbits. The only problem is is that this movie is way too confusing for the little kids and promoting this as a family film was a big slip. What kind of family movie has two characters that are domestic partners??? Anyways, the storytelling is smart and intelligent. The acting is good. I really liked Rainn Wilson's character. He played it out well. The kid who played Noah was good but whoever played his little sister was great! Her performance was much better than most child actors these days. Michael Clarke Duncan was good as well. I went to see this at the theater and thought the film was going to be a E.T.-type sci-fi family film. WROOOOOOONGGGGG!! I was focused and at the edge of my seat the whole time. When I got out, I actually had to discuss the film's analysis with my sister and father. You know its a good psycological science-fiction film when you discuss the analysis. Is this review convincing you, parents? If yes, GREAT! This movie is highly recommended. But I suggest the film for kids age 8 and older. Too confusing for little ones. Adults will love it too. I think adults will like it more than the adults. When you see it, you'll enjoy it! LOL!!! The Mimzy doll was powered by Intel! LOL!!! "This is Mimzy. She teaches me everything."
