Storyline

Harry Putter is a mockumentary with interviews and stories about the 'real boy', Harry Putter, upon whom JK Rowling based her famous books. As Putter explains, Rowling (and Hollywood) took a lot of literary license to his life's tale, changing or outright omitting many of the actual facts about his life for "artistic" purposes. Harry now intends to set the record straight in this revealing and honest documentary about what REALLY happened. For example, not ALL wizards ride around on fancy Nimbus 2000 broom sticks; those who can afford it much prefer the more technologically advanced and smoother riding Oreck XL vacuum cleaner!

Cute for Potter fans, but don't expect a lot of magic
25 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

This film purports to be the real story of Harry Putter--the guy who was the inspiration for J.K. Rowling's novels. This guy, however, goes to a far less magical world and he and his friends use far more mundane magic. In fact, the dreaded "Sorcerer's Stone" is actually the just a sorcerer's phone--and it's great because it can make unlimited phone calls. Again and again, the truth is far less magical and, well, boring.

The film is reasonably well made but has all the look of a fan mockumentary. Die-hard fans of the series will love it, mild fans of the series (like myself) will see it as a time-passer and those not familiar with the books will probably care less. It's not a fancy or sophisticated film--just a nice film by some big fans.
