Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007)
Critic Consensus: Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium's title is much more fun that the film itself, as the colorful visuals and talented players can't make up for a bland story.

Critic Reviews for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
The film may occasionally strain too hard for magical whimsy, but there's no disputing its sweetness or poignancy.
The trailers make the movie look like the ickiest kind of whimsy, accompanied by obstreperous special effects, but the film itself is gasp-worthy.
Better to prepare your children for the world with a DVD of Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy.
In its favour, there's nothing here to upset the children. (Not, that is, unless they're allergic to Hoffman's hammy, Method-derived acting.)
No wise child, let alone grown-up, will touch this with a turkey baster.
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
