Imagine That Movie Preview

Imagine That Movie Preview - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 08, 2009
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Eddie Murphy is back on the big screen in the new kids’ comedy Imagine That opening on June 12, 2009. Kidzworld has the following preview to whet your appetite.

Funnyman Eddie Murphy is back on the big screen and he’s doing the warm-and-fuzzy family thing again, starring in the new kids’ comedy Imagine That. You won’t be able to go watch the full-length show in theatres before June 12, 2009, but Kidzworld has the following preview to whet your appetite.

Coming out just in time for Father’s Day, Eddie Murphy plays a totally work-obsessed businessman and barely-there dad who finds his career in chaos and crisis until he starts listening to what his daughter’s imaginary friends have to say.

Imagine That is rated PG, which means some of you may need to take your mom and/or dad along when you go see this movie, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The story basically serves as a warning to parents to start listening more closely to some of the imaginative things their kids have to say!

More Movie Details

Going a little more in-depth, you’ll get to know Eddie Murphy’s character – Evan – pretty well in this flick. Evan’s a business-world heavyweight who is divorced from the mother (Trish, played by Nicole Ari Parker) of his daughter (Olivia, who is played by Yara Shahidi). While Evan climbs the corporate ladder, Trish is pretty much left to raise Olivia as a single mom.

Unfortunately, Olivia is having a really hard time adjusting to school, especially because she refuses to go anywhere without her blanket (named Goo-Gaa), who she has lots of conversations with. So Trish decides to send her daughter to live with her dad and try to sort out her problems.

But Evan’s been so focused on his career that he’s really not put any time or effort into being a dad to his daughter, and he doesn’t really know how to do the whole parenting thing – and isn’t really into it, either. He’s the kind of father who’s more worried about magnesium stocks and fluctuations in the Bolivian dollar than listening to or spending much time with his kid.

Luckily for Olivia (and unluckily for her dad) a guy named Johnny Whitefeather (played by Thomas Haden Church) starts vying for a promotion that Evan had his heart set on. Evan finally starts paying attention to his daughter when he finds out that her talking (and, apparently, psychic!) blanky, Goo-Gaa, can actually make accurate predictions about the stock market.

Olivia, however, is so used to her dad ignoring her that she starts getting suspicious about the amount of time Evan is spending with her – and her blanket. So she decides to teach her dad an important lesson in parenthood.

If you want to find out what happens, you’ll have to go see the movie!
