Movie Review: Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007)

Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Justin Bateman
Director: Zach Helm
Genre: Family
Rating: G

I gave this movie a try because I'm a fan of Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman and Jason Bateman. You get a magic movie store run by Dustin Hoffman who plays Mr. Magorium who also is an avid shoe wearer. Natalie Portman as the loyal employee of the store and Justin Bateman at the mutant, I mean accountant, who tries to make heads or tails of the finances of the store.

It is a decent G rated movie. A good cast who seemed to have fun with their roles. A movie about believing and using your imagination to achieve the impossible. Well, having a magic store helps too.

It should be liked by kids as it is funny as well as having a good story. The cast plays it off well and most will find it as a entertaining movie.
