A wonderous film....By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 03 Dec 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A piece of true cinemagic for young and old alike in the vein of Lemony Snicketts and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this is an amazing blend of mischief, fun and entertainment that just had the whole cinema riveted. Dustin Hoffmann was wonderous as the centuries old eccentric toy shop owner, aided by a lacking in confidence assistant (Natalie Portman), a straight laced 'by the book' accountant and a boy (Zach Mills - again excellent) who finds it difficult to make friends, partly because of his particular liking for hats. It just has all the mad fun and escapist magic that childrens (and olders) films should have and some sadly miss. For us this will be one of those played again films that when it comes to DVD we will end up wearing out the disc far before we ever wear out our enjoyment of the film, yep trust me it is that good. Definately recommended.

Mr Mgoriums wonder imporiumBy a customer from Birkenhead , 16 Sep 2009My sons and I watched this film on a sunday afternoon, allthough we all enjoyed it, it seemed a very short film and probably wouldn't want to watch it a second time.
