Movie Review: Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Our Friday Night Movie this week was Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.

Description: When the 243 year old Mr Magorium discovers his health is failing, he turns over his toy store to the quiet, depressed Molly Mahoney. Since the store reflects the energy of those who run it, Molly must work to lift her spirits and help the shop recapture its magic.

Rated:G
1 hour and 40 min long

What did we think? I thought this was a great family movie. There was no bad language, inappropriate behavior or anything I found objectionable. It was a sweet movie about the magic of being a kid, something we forget as adults. There was one comment made about death that Mr. Magorium said he may be going to Heaven, Shangri La, or returning as a bumble bee, that none of my kids noticed. Chelsea (11) and Nicholas (6) both gave the movie 5 stars. For Alex (4) and Anthony (2) the movie did not hold their attention. Christian (11 months ) did not have an opinion. I think it was a great movie for kids 5 and up and Adults too.
