On his ninth birthday a boy receives many presents. Two of them first seem to be less important: an old cupboard from his brother and a little Indian figure made of plastic from his best friend. But these two presents turn out to be much more magic than the rest... Written by

In the hallway of the school, Omri and Patrick are arguing because Patrick is trying to show Little Bear and Boone to some classmates. Patrick is against the wall as Omri yells at him. Note the goof when the young actor playing Patrick mouths much of Omri's dialogue in anticipation of his own lines. See more »
Where may I ask, is my coffee? I always start my day with a cup of coffee.
Okay, if you're good, I'll make you breakfast.
Cook? Like a woman! You are a woman!
Oh please, you guys are so old fashioned.
I'll have you know I'm a civilized man.
[looks at Little Bear]
Where do you come from?
I come from Texas, Mr. Half-a-brain!

Forget reviews saying this is not as good as the book. No films are are a good as the book! Watch this movie with an 8 year old child and you will see how good the film is.
Thank you Frank Oz for a wonderful film. The acting from the young children is above average and the tearful ending just right for a young audience. Interesting to note Steve Coogan plays a miniature model come to life - something he repeats later in his career in A Night At The Museum. Typecasting?
The effects are also very good. Remember this is 1995 when CGI was in it's infancy - but the miniaturisation of the cast is flawless.
