Storyline

The siblings Noah and Emma travel with their mother Jo from Seattle to the family cottage in Whidbey Island to spend a couple of days while their workaholic father David Wilder is working. They find a box of toys from the future in the water and bring it home, and Emma finds a stuffed rabbit called Mimzy, and stones and a weird object, but they hide their findings from their parents. Mimzy talks telepathically to Emma and the siblings develop special abilities, increasing their intelligences to the level of genius. Their father becomes very proud when Noah presents a magnificent design in the fair of science and technology, and his teacher Larry White and his mystic wife Naomi Schwartz become interested in the boy when he draws a mandala. When Noah accidentally assembles the objects and activates a powerful generator creating a blackout in the state, the FBI arrests the family trying to disclose the mystery. But Emma unravels the importance to send Mimzy back to the future. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When Noah first controls a spider at the beach house (at around 19 mins), director Robert Shaye mentions in the commentary that Visual Effects Supervisor Eric Durst "got hold of the special effects house in Australia that did all of the visual effects for Le petit monde de Charlotte (2006) - they happened to have the computer program for making spiders crawling on webs."

Quotes

Emma Wilder: [about Mimzy] I think Mimzy's sick. Can you tell? Something's wrong. She's getting weaker. I'm afraid she's going to die.
David Wilder: She's a *stuffed animal,* Emma! Now you've got to stop it with this "Mimzy" stuff.

I thought this was an excellent movie
10 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

I took my daughter to a screening and was very surprised at how good this movie was. My 13 year old could not decide whether she liked this movie or the Bridge to Terabithia better. There was never a dull moment. We were both very entertained. It was definitely worth the price of admission. The younger kids (10 and under) did not seem to enjoy it as much as the adults and teens though. If you are planning on seeing this, stay away from trailers. You'll have a much better experience the less you know about it. During the last 10 minutes, the reel or film broke. You should have heard the uproar that caused. Everyone in the theater waited impatiently while the projectionist repaired the film. I'll probably go see this again when it does open.
