Storyline

Mr.Magoo is an eccentric millionaire with very bad eyesight who refuses to use eyeglasses and therefore always gets into trouble. During the museum robbery he accidentally gets a priceless gem called the Star of Kurdistan, and begins to trace the way for the arch-criminals whose idea was to steal the gem - Austin Cloquet and Ortega "The Piranha" Peru, while two federal agents Stupak and Anders lead the manhunt for Mr.Magoo himself.

Good when I was 8 ... bad when I'm 18.
5 January 2008 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

I remember when I went to this movie with my mom in Germany. I laugh so much watching it ... and like for 10 years I kept it in so good memories. Then came the day when Mr.Magoo was being showed on our TV station in Latvia, I wanted to see it so much ... I even taped it. But when I watched it I was so disappointed. I didn't even smile while watching it.

Well what I wanted to say with this, you can't rate this kind of movies like a grownup. It's not a comedy made for us but for the kids, and watching this they won't be disappointed. And the parents won't be disappointed too because they will see their kids smiling and smile with them.

Because of the grate memories 10/10.
