Father of reviewer says: Great kids movie. Below is quote from my youngest.

"All I want to say is that it's a really funny movie. That was like the funniest movie ever." I'll just add that I've always enjoyed Leslie Nielsen's acting, both serious and comic, and he definitely delivered a fine performance in this somewhat maligned flick. It's really interesting how many people couldn't rate this movie according to the opinion of the target audience (grade school), and instead tried to see it as something like "Airport" or "Naked Gun". Unfair comparison. Those movies were made with adults in mind, even if teens were more its market. But "Mr. Magoo" is definitely for young children. I loved hearing my youngest cackle every few minutes. And frankly, by letting myself just be a kid for 88 minutes, I found myself laughing here and there and the cuter gags. Oh, and I'm sorry, but that scene with Magoo not realizing his cooking channel got switched to an aerobics channel and starting to do the workout with his chicken is comic genius. That was hysterical by any standard. So, yeah, this movie deserves a 10 in its genre -- which is really how any movie should be judged, if you think about it.

You people are soooo mean!

Mr Magoo was a hilarious movie. I don't know why everyone gives it so much grief. First of all, Leslie Nielsen is one of the funniest actors alive, and I personally like movies in which the characters just happen to walk right into a worst case scenario. And after three Naked Gun movies, who's better qualified for that job than Leslie Nielsen. In this movie, Nielsen's character, Mr. Magoo, has to solve the case of a stolen ruby from his mueseum. Coming along with him are his dog, Angus and his nephew, Waldo. To those of you who saw the film and hated it, remember, the film is directed toward kids and Disney fans. It wasn't meant to be an "A" class movie. PS: Would you like it more if you knew that Jennifer Garner is in it?

A nostalgic guilty pleasure

There's a part of me that knows what a godawful, scattershot mess Mr. Magoo is. That part of me begs reason, implores myself to recognize the boldfaced stupidity and flagrant dips into shameless, moronic lowbrow humour barely worthy of a troupe of chimps. There's also another part of me that absolutely loves the movie for all of the reasons just outlined. OK, so I watched it a lot as a kid, and have that nostalgia for it that one can only have with a fond childhood memory of something. But even so, all ridiculousness taken into account, it's a silly bit of fun that doesn't quite capture the tone of the famous cartoon, but fires away on its own whacko cylinders for ninety minutes of eyebrow raising, idiotic bliss. Leslie Nielsen, who has made a career of playing disastrous buffoons, portrays Mr. Magoo, a near sighted elderly gent whose visual impairment leads him on all sorts of adventures and odd situations, which the movie doesn't hesitate to illustrate in bold, silly fashion that gives the animated source material a run for its money. When a valuable foreign jewel which his charitable foundation is tasked with presenting is stolen, he and his asinine nephew Waldo (terminally awkward Matt Keesler) are led on a goose chase to find the two thieves, laughably sultry Kelly Lynch and dimbulb Nick Chinlund. That's about as far as plot goes, and it's all the blueprint you need for the cascade of slapstick muck that bombards your good taste for the better part of an hour and a half. One has to give credit to the stunt crew, who create scene after scene of madness for Nielsen and crew to parade through, from a snow chase on an ironing board, to a South American waterfall derby and all kinds of messiness in between. Some truly talented people got dragged into this, including Jennifer Garner as an Eastern European (HA!), Stephen Tobolowsky as an overzealous, bumbling fed who borders on certifiable, beloved Ernie Hudson as another law enforcement stooge, Miguel Ferrer as a Peruvian drug lord, and the one and only Malcolm McDowell as a sinister crime boss (who else?). The Vancouver locations are cool, especially an over the top Grouse Mountain set showdown. Like I said, it's a whole lot of dumb dumb, and don't say I didn't warn you. But it's also so much Fricken fun, man.
