Looking back on it the acting was solid, the special effects were great, the story was fun but the movie just dragged. That tells me that it was poor directing. Over all the message for kids was great, be yourself and believe in your self and great things will happen. I think kids might like this movie but I would fear that it would move to slow for them. Director Zach Helm needed to make this movie move a little faster. For a 90 minute movie it seemed like I was watching it forever. Over all I would have to say wait until cable on this movie.

Cute movie though it seemed really long for a short movie. Good family movie to watch one time.

"If you want to sing out"

Zach Helm has delivered a lovely little film that tonally and thematically sits in the dead centre of Willy Wonka and Harold and Maude. Whilst the quirky nature of the script coupled with an overly whacky performance from Dustin Hoffman may be off-putting to some, those who perservere will find much to enjoy.
Portman is dependably solid as the lead but it is Jason Bateman who, in an impressive supporting role, provides the films beating heart.
Magorium manages to be both a hyper-stylized aesthetic treat and yet also remains grounded in genuine emotion (not unlike Juno). The montage sequence set to "Don't Be Shy" provides as much inspiration, melancholy and glee in one scene as most directors do in entire careers.
The potential Zach Helm shows in this, his directorial debut, is remarkab...

Uninvolving and unoriginal

Well, itís been predicted that consumers may not be spending as much this holiday season. Not if MR. MAGORIUMíS WONDER EMPORIUM has anything to do with it. One of the most noticeable things about the film is its sheer amount of product placement in the titular toy store. Thereís everything from Curious George books to Duplo blocks to Lego logs and everything in between. Unfortunately, the fact that these images are so present and memorable after the film indicates there is not much else worth remembering about it. And itís true; aside from an annoyingly catching title and a few recognizable items, MR. MAGORIUMíS WONDER EMPORIUM is a mess of wannabe originality that seems all too familiar.

This is most evident, however, in Hoffmanís performance as the titular character. Mr. Magori...
