The result is a much more playable film than recent efforts, though Murphy will have to share the applause with young Yara Shahidi.

Variety
An undemandingly pleasant, mildly amusing fantasy.
67
Austin Chronicle
All in all, Imagine That is an amiable detour from its star's usual scatological skronk. Kids will empathize, parents will breathe a sigh of relief.
63
Amusing without ever being break-out funny.

While Imagine That falls short of its feel-good aim, its feel-nice vibe is a good Father's Day diversion for Dads and their spawn.
60
Village Voice
Imagine That does manage to get a crowd tearing up on cue for its emotional climax; as much as it works, it's through the personal charm of Murphy and Shahidi.
60
For the first time since "The Nutty Professor," Eddie Murphy successfully mixes his adult and kid-film personas -- imagine that.
58
There's something sweet about the way that Murphy throws himself into this piffle. Thomas Haden Church does too.

Eddie Murphy in another mediocre family comedy? Imagine that.
25
The A.V. Club
Though he commits to a lot of embarrassing silliness, Murphy projects so little genuine warmth that his transformation barely registers.
