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

Posted by JungleBoot on May 2, 2008

Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium ( 2007 ***** ) stars Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Zach Mills, and Jason Bateman.  The story takes place in a magical toy store owned by an eccentric 243 year old man — Mr. Magorium (Hoffman).  His one employee, Molly Mahooney (Portman), feels stuck in life and doesn’t know if she wants to continue working in the store.  However, Mr. Magorium goes about his business of preparing to hand the store over to Molly and hires an accountant, Henry Weston (Bateman), to get his “financials” in order.  What follows is a magical journey of discovery and imagination that the whole family can enjoy.  This movie gets 5 stars out of 5.  I’ts an extremely clean movie and lots of fun to watch.  If your inner child doesn’t come out, then something is wrong with you.
