Mr. Magorium's Wonder EmporiumDirected byZach Helm
This is hands down one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Genuinely offensive, this movie bastardized the hallowed themes of whimsy, fantasy, and adventure. The fact that this abomination was even conceptualized is a blemish on the cinematic record. It is beyond me that three actors as relatively talented as Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, and Jason Bateman could have signed on to such a project.
