Believe In Yourself and the Magic Happens
Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman) is the manager of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, the awesome toy store owned by Mr. Edward Magorium (Dustin Hoffman). Molly was a promising composer and piano player when she was a girl, and now she is a twenty-three year-old insecure woman that feels stuck in her job. Among the costumers of the Emporium is the lonely hat collector Eric Applebaum (Zach Mills), who has only Molly and Mr. Magorium as friends. When the last pair of shoes that Mr. Magorium bought in Toscana is worn, he hires the accountant Henry Weston (Jason Bateman) that he calls Mutant to adjust the accounts of the Emporium. Further, he claims that he is two hundred and forty-three year old and his time to go has come; he gives a block of wood called Congreve cube to Molly and asks Henry to transfer the Emporium to her name. Molly tries to convince Mr. Magorium to stay in his magical toy store instead of “going”.
“Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” is a pleasant fantasy with a positive message that anything can happen, even magic, when you believe in yourself. The ambiguous story told by Eric may be metaphorically interpreted by the adults or just be seen as a magical toy store by the kids and the result is equally good. The sweet Natalie Portman is perfectly cast in the role of Molly, but Dustin Hoffman plays a quite boring Mr. Magorium. The special effects are amazing. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): “A Loja Mágica de Brinquedos” (“The Magical Toy Store”)
Magic without boundaries equals visual effects without heart…
Toy store manager and one-time piano prodigy, unhappy with the direction of her life and seemingly blocked artistically, is willed ownership of the store by her boss–the magically feckless Mr. Magorium–who knows the exact day and time he will pass on to another world. Writer-director Zach Helm has obviously seen a lot of movies and knows many card tricks, but he doesn’t write characters–only occupations. There’s the store owner (Dustin Hoffman, channeling Ed Wynn from “Babes in Toyland”), his beautiful-yet-unmarried assistant (Natalie Portman, all doe-eyed smiles and half-laughs), the humorless accountant who learns to loosen up (Jason Bateman, pulling a Jason Bateman), and the wizened youngster (Zach Mills) who helps out in the store and knows all its incredible secrets. Turns out the Emporium really is magical, with dolls that come to life and rooms that change completely with the turn of a knob. How far did Helm want to take this scenario before it became utterly ridiculous? The filmmaker is so concentrated on the visual accouterments (and bowling his audience over with sparkly eye-candy) that he fails to develop the story. The movie opens on a sleepy bookmaker who lives down in the basement, but we rarely see him again. As for Hoffman, he doesn’t really get into the personage of the happy-go-lucky toy specialist; worse, the irresponsible nature of Mr. Magorium–whose business office is awash with unpaid bills–lingers over the upbeat finale like a dark shadow. There are good moments, particularly in the budding friendship between Bateman and Mills, but if Helm was hoping for a romantic sub-plot between the man and the woman, it got lost somewhere in the shuffle. In fact, “Magorium” is all shuffle and show, and its heart is hard to find. ** from ****
