The Last Mimzy (2007)



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.

Critic Reviews for The Last Mimzy

All Critics (124) | Top Critics (35)

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?

Does an excellent job both making science fiction accessible for a younger audience.

Classic kids' fantasy in the spirit of Flight of the Navigator and ET.

I like to refer to it as "Donnie Darko" sans the violence if aimed towards kids...

Cinema Crazed

Considering that parts are frightening, parts are nauseatingly sweet, and it's all confusing, it's not clear which demographic Mimzy is aiming for.

Washington City Paper

O'Neil and Wryn convey the occult and the mysterious with greater depth than you'd expect them to possess at their respective ages of 13 and 7.

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