Critic Reviews for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Let's not be too Scrooge-like; there are pockets of charm, and some of the effects are quite good.
It's so intent on being whimsical, so aware of its own whimsicality, that it ends up being not very whimsical at all.
Helm gets huge bonus points for noticing everything that's annoying about modern children's films and including none of those things in his movie.
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is what happens when too many sappy sweet instincts chase too few original ideas.
In a season filled with depressing movies for adults, someone's finally thought to give equal time to the kids.
Audience Reviews for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
This cute little fairy tale about an ancient but quirky toy store owner with odd powers taking the matters of heritage for his store in his own hands is a deeply naive film. If you accept that or if you're young enough not to notice it between all those multi-colored toys, hugging monkeys and rockets, this is quite a charming and sweet film. Some parts feel a bit arbitrary and forced but there is no being mad at Dustin Hoffman when he does his little boy smile or when Natalie Portman finally finds her career of choice thanks to banker Jason Bateman. Kids should most certainly have fun with this, but even adults who still know about the feeling of wonder upon entering a toy store should have enjoyable 90 minutes with this little film.
Mr. Magoriums Crappy Emporium. This film was boring, and its exsistence is only for kids to come because of a magical toy store, woopdy freakin doo kids, have a magical time at this crap.
a movie that is like the toy shop version of "Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory" and the movie was good and i appreciate its kiddy feel to it
