Trivia

Eddie Murphy was nominated for two Razzie awards, as he was nominated for Worst Actor and won Worst Actor of the Decade. This marks the first Nickelodeon film to be nominated for a Razzie award, an award ceremony dishonoring the worst in motion picture industry. The second was its next film, The Last Airbender (2010).

Goofs

In the big meeting with D'Enzo, he states (referring to Johnny Whitefeather) "And your great-grandfather was one-half Navaho. So what would that make you? One-thirty-second?" This is factually wrong. If his great-grandfather was half Navaho, then he would be 1/16th Navaho (his grandfather would be 1/4 and his father would be 1/8th). Martin Sheen either read the line wrong and it should have been "great great-grandfather", or it was simply written wrong. See more »

Quotes

Tod: Mr. E, I talked to the lawyer guy upstairs and he confirmed my hunch, uh, about the whole stabbing of Mr. Whitefeather thing. It's a definite no can do from a legal standpoint.

Fun but forgettable
11 October 2009 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a high ranking executive in a financial corporation, who falls into his daughter's fantasy world.

"Imagine That" is a fun movie that is suitable for both adults and children. Eddie Murphy does a good job to entertain, but this time he dances and sings with his daughter. It is a refreshing change that his movie is without any gross or crude humour. In between the fun scenes, it explores family relationships and how people prioritise their loved ones. It is particularly sad that parents nowadays may be emotionally distant from their children because of heavy work commitments, which is so well portrayed in this film. Of course, "Imagine That" does not dwell in such a topic, but instead is a forgettable comedy.
