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.

Nielson is hilarious
23 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Only Leslie Nielson could pull this movie off, not Jim Carrey, or Robin Williams. Nielson can play silly comedy straight, and make all awkward situations appear normal. It was original ideas in this comedy that seemed to work. Silly and incredibly close to the cartoon; this film entertained, and the humor is geared for everyone.
