Review of Mr Magoriums Wonder Emporium

(I left out the apostrophe, because I don't like what punctuation does the the URL.)

Last night the family saw Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.  Dustin Hoffman plays a somewhat Willy Wonka-like character in a large toy store (in New York City?).  The store is magic, and Mr. Magorium possibly is as well.

Natalie Portman plays the store manager (and only other employee??!!), who is struggling with the prospect of taking over the store after Mr. Magorium's approaching death.

It was pretty decent.  Worth seeing once for the kids.  I think adults could get by without seeing it -- but if you've rented (or streamed!) it for the kids, you may as well see it as well.

Rated "G" -- so, hey:  good family fare.
