I just don't get how this got 4.5 stars. I'm baffled. I thought maybe it was me being too "dad," but my kids 5, 8, and 9, laughed 2-3 times in the whole movie. The concept is funny and I'm sure the book was good--remember loving James and the Giant Peach and Willy Wonka--but this movie is just loud and obnoxious with very little to laugh at.

Nothing special about this edition except extras. We want widescreen!

This Matilda has no spunk! It feels more like a vehicle for Danny Devito's character. Very disappointing. See the broadway show instead or read the book.

My 6 year old son didn't get it. Neglected kid and bully principal.

Sometimes you need art explained to you, and maybe that's why I had a mixed reaction to the film MATILDA. It did not bore me, that's for sure. I thought child actor Mara Wilson did a great job in the title role. Were the filmmakers telling the story through the point of view and imagination of a little kid? That would explain why this adult had trouble understanding MATILDA. Growing up helps you forget some of the confusion and pain - as well as free spirit - we all probably had in childhood. My favorite scene: Matilda's dance to "Little Bitty Pretty One," because through all that turmoil, she's making her life what she wants it to be.

The movie was great. Loved it. This is called a special edition release? Why? For a DVD released in mid 2005, why is this movie in full screen format and not widescreen? That doesn't sound very special to me. If anything, they should have included both formats on the disc at this time. This DVD should be released in widescreen format. I do have the movie, but am not very happy with it

I truly don't know why everyone else rated it so highly. The story is steeped in abuse and the characters are creepy and, from what I could tell, there's simply nothing to enjoy.

And predictable family fare. Amazon's low quality, overzealously compressed video didn't help. Come to think of it, let's make that 1-1/2 stars...

Not quite what I remembered. It is rated PG but I still expected it to be okay for my Y7 crowd. Not so - it's a little too violent and pointless. There are no life lessons to be learned with this one, and no entertainment value for the kids. I was hoping for a little more and got a little less.
