It is indeed very interesting and amusing to see the cartoon Mr. Magoo 'come to life' acted out by non other than the great comedian Leslie Nielsen. I burst out laughing a few times watching this movie, for example, the part when Mr. Magoo was trying to prepare the 'chicken dish' for the lovely but fatal Prunela (Kelly Lynch). He was watching a 'cooking' program when it was changed to an 'aerobics' program and next to a 'carpentary' program. Mr. Magoo as usual being visually impaired, went through all the 'rituals' with his chicken. It was hilarious! Get this movie and laugh your way through with Mr. Magoo from the beginning when the jewel was stolen to the end when he restored it to its rightful place, all the while not realizing the dangers he was in. This is because as in the cartoon, he always walks away smoothly from all harm despite his bad eyesight. This is a wonderful movie for 'tired, sore' eyes!

This is definitely a botched opportunity. The plot involving a stolen jewel is too tedious for adults. It's also too complicated for children to enjoy. Sole redeeming qualities are Leslie Nielsen's game performance as the title character and an effervessant Jennifer Garner in an early role. Doesn't even qualify as a decent waste of time. The late great Jim Backus is probably rolling in his grave.

In my youth, I remember the Mr. Magoo cartoons, and due to his style of performing, Leslie Nielsen is probably the only actor who could pull this off on the big screen. There also was the inevitable spoof of the competition between the CIA and the FBI, and the movie also managed to parody the international intrigue of many movies. If we were going to identify a heroic character, it would have to be Angus the bulldog, and at times it appeared that Angus was the only character with a lick of sense. Then the scene where Mr. Magoo goes down a ski slope on the backside of an ironing board was hilarious. All in all, those who liked Mr. Magoo cartoons, would find this an entertaining movie.

Definately one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. I laughed from beginning to end. I've always been a big fan of Leslie Nielsen and he has played many a funny part. I saw this on the Disney Channel and wanted to own the movie myself. I, myself am 39 years old, but love a good comedy and am a great fan of Disney! Anybody who watches this movie and says it isn't funny, must not enjoy the simple things in life, or at least, making fun of it. Keep up the great work, Leslie!

This is probably the worst Leslie Nielsen comedy ever. It is just an attempt to use the name Leslie Nielsen to attempt to save a movie not worth making.
