5
Die Burger
Jacques Lieberberg quote icon'n Stewige, genotlike prent oor die wonder van kindwees.
10
The Citizen
Peter Feldman quote iconWe all need a little bit of magic this holiday season and this could just be the source.
12
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis isn't quite the over-the-top fantasy you'd like it to be, but it's a charming enough little movie, and probably the younger you are, the more charming.
15
eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconProducing a film that endeavors to help children cope with questions of existence is all well and good, but kind of pointless when there isn't a shred of life in it.
1
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconIt's plodding and at times tedious and it never really goes anywhere.
10
ScreenIt
quote iconAs it stands, about the only fun thing about Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is its rhyming title, and that's clearly not enough to make us believe, or care, as much as we should.
