Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman) is the awkward and insecure manager of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium; the strangest, most fantastic, most wonderful toy shop in the world. But when Mr. Magorium (Dustin Hoffman), the 243 year-old eccentric who owns the shop, bequeaths it to her, a dark and ominous change begins to take over the once remarkable Emporium. Molly must do her dandiest to preserve the store's magic.

Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium is not exactly sappy, but the light fanciful stuff becomes weighed down by boring grown-up issues of self-doubt. Most kids will get very wriggly and restless during this surprisingly empty, laugh-free, family drama...
