What if your daughter's imagination was the secret to your success? When a highly competitive money mogul (Eddie Murphy) finds his financial kingdom slipping, he turns to his 7-year-old daughter (Yara Shahidi) and her fantasy world of imaginary princesses for help. Embarking on a whirlwind journey of comic proportions, father and daughter are about to discover that sometimes all you need is a little imagination - and a lot of love - in this 'feel-good winner with something for everyone' (Pete Hammond,

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly cute, even, and enjoyable November 18, 2009
As a teenager over 20 years ago I remember laughing long and hard at "Beverly Hills Cop" and even Eddie Murphy's generally irreverent and profane humor. But as a parent I am glad to see him using his talents in a more family friendly way, even if it usually borders on slapstick or over-the-top humor like Jim Carrey (this one didn't quite go that far). And I must admit that the commercials featuring that stupidly annoying kid throwing plastic balls at him in the playground didn't put this one on my "must-see" list. But my wife rented it one night and I was pleasantly surprised.

Murphy plays Evan Danielson, an aggressive workaholic investment consultant with no time for family - in fact, he's divorced and has no connection with his daughter, Olivia (about 6 years old, I think). But when he's forced to care for her for a week he's insensitive to her security blanket and imaginary friends... until he realizes that these friends are giving surprisingly accurate investment advice. And thus begins a relationship with his daughter that, although not initially based on the right reasons, opens his eyes to what he's missing out on.

I'm not exactly a devotee of this type of movie and haven't really seen any of Murphy's films since Disney's "The Haunted Mansion" (which was very disappointing compared to "Pirates of the Caribbean"), but my kids and I really enjoyed this one. I didn't notice any foul language and any crude jokes must have gone right over my head. Yara Shahidi was perfectly cute as his neglected daughter, and Thomas Hayden Church was particularly funny as Johnny Whitefeather, his main competition at work with phony Native American investing advice. The plot-line may be formulaic and in some ways the moral-of-the-story done a bit too Hollywood-ish, but I thought the movie was quite fun, and definitely better than I expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Movie February 1, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a different Eddie Murphy movie and one that should have done better in the ratings than it did. I bought it for family members who are very particular as to what they allow children to watch. It was funny, had a message regarding a father's need to
take time to be a real father. The little girl in movie was excellent in the part. I have bought this movie for future viewing.

Eddie Murphy is a long ways away now from his box office days, which goes to show just how hard it is to stay on top and to stay relevant. IMAGINE THAT follows his trend of starring in kid-friendly flicks, except that this one isn't as good as the SHREK films, as as good as DR. DOLITTLE or even DADDY DAY CARE. That IMAGINE THAT is watchable at all is due to some nice interplay between Murphy and the little girl who plays his daughter in the movie.

The story elements couldn't be more trite or unoriginal. Workaholic investment adviser Evan Danielson (Murphy) is intent on climbing that corporate ladder and barely finds time for his 7-year-old kid Olivia. When his separated wife sticks him with babysitting Olivia, Evan agrees - after all, he does love his daughter - but Olivia, cute but peculiar, is no match for his work portfolio. Olivia's favorite thing in the world is her googah, which is this blue security blanket and also her portal to an imaginary world and her invisible friends.

For Evan, it's hard to do work when your kid is incessantly talking silly nonsense to herself. But is it really nonsense? When Olivia's make-believe princess friends end up dispensing savvy investment tips, Evan decides that he ought to spend more time with his daughter. Er, because he loves her.

Kids may like this, probably, because Yara Shahidi is cute and earnest and simply very good as Olivia. But the story follows a predictable path. Its payoff is weak and involves Murphy's character having to get to his daughter's big school concert. Not that it matters, but we never do learn for sure if the fantasy element really is of a magical nature or rooted in a more earthbound explanation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine That! November 1, 2009
By Jersey
I wasn't sure if this movie was going to be corny or not being a childrens movie and all - but I was surprised at how funny it was! I loved Eddie Murphy in "Daddy Day Care" and loved him in this movie equally as much! This movie isn't appropriate for younger ages (it's rated PG) and I believe it's PG because of some adult humor - but it's nothing you wouldn't see on TV and no foul language is used! "Imagine That" has a really cute message for all ages!

A Kid's Review
A Review over "Imagine That"

I can honestly say "Imagine That" is one of my all time top favorite movies I have ever watched! I may be only twelve years old, but I have watched many movies!
"Imagine That" is a wonderful family movie about this young, imaginative little girl who believes she has a `magic' blanket that she talks to. Her father, who is Eddie Murphy, pretends that she is truthful, and he ends up imagining stuff with her in her magic world. Pretty soon, the blanket and his daughter make decisions about his major job, which gets him promoted to a fabulous work job as head executive!
This movie is excellent, and the father, mother, and child have a history and background that resembles life now. The little girl's parents are getting a divorce, which sadly happens often now, and she pretends in her own world they love each other. "Imagine That" is a heart-wrenching movie you just can't miss!
Eddie Murphy did an excellent job with his role, and he made you feel right there in the movie. As always, he was so funny! To be so young, the little girl did a major part in the movie. It was amazing just to watch her! She was really into her part, something you don't see everyday from someone so young. This is a movie you'll want to watch again and again. It is awesome and my top favorite!
