About this movie

When Mr. Magorium, the store's extraordinary 243 year-old proprietor (Dustin Hoffman), announces that he will at long last hand over the reigns of his wonder-expanding store to his unconfident young manager, Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman), the store decides to throw an unusual tantrum. As a skeptical accountant named Henry (Jason Bateman) comes in to audit the Legos® and Lincoln Logs®, not to mention the Whodathoughts and Whatchamacallits, the once sparkling, color-saturated Emporium is suddenly embattled by mysterious changes. The playful toys are all still there, but they've turned gray and quiet -- and only Mahoney and Henry can revive them if, with the help of a superdexterous 9 year-old (Zach Mills), they can find the source of magic inside themselves.

It speaks to the child-like joy of life we all hold somewhere inside. Granted it is a quirky little picture but all the actors are great in their weirdness and its magical qualities are unapologetic. A good time, as long as you don't have a black heart.

The only bad thing about this movie is that it ends too soon. I wish there was simply more film to take part in. Absolutely love every minute of it! A masterpiece from start to finish in every right

It makes you think about your life and what you have accomplished. I cried like a pansy but I love this movie to death!
