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.

I didn't think it was that bad!
30 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is far from Leslie Nielson's best movie, that's Airplane or Naked Gun, but Mr Magoo in my opinion is far better than the crap-fest that is 2001:A Space Travesty. As for Mr Magoo, I don't think it was that bad. It was far from perfect, being a little too short and have a story that was on the predictable side.

But I do think it is underrated, I thought it was entertaining and fun which is more than I can say for some of the movies I hate, some of which are only a couple of notches higher than this one (ie. Freddy Got Fingered). As for the rating, I do think 3.4 is too low, around the 5.9-6.0 region is more like it.

So what did I like about Mr Magoo? Well the fact I was entertained by it helped. The script is amusing, and there are some fun gags, including a hilarious scene in the kitchen. The film does look reasonably good too with good locations and the photography and editing doesn't look as cheap as one might think. The soundtrack is suitably upbeat, the film moves quickly and the direction is pretty decent. And the acting was at least okay too, Nielson was a genius when it came to comedy and while he has been better he does seem to be enjoying himself and Mr Magoo himself is a fun and likable character. Out of the supporting cast, Ernie Hudson, Miguel Ferrer and especially Malcolm McDowell were fun, and Jennifer Garner was okay.

All in all, the film is far from perfect but it wasn't bad either. 8/10 Bethany Cox
