A fun family movie that will have you laughing until the end, while the story and the lesson being taught are predictable, it's the humor that sets it apart, while it may not do much new it's still an enjoyable movie for the family.

Way too cute for my taste. Eddie Murphy does try, but with material as sappy as this it doesn

You will have to imagine that Eddie Murphy is still funny if you want to get a laugh out of this movie.

Funny, light-hearted but predictable outcome. Vanessa Williams performance is pretty lackluster.

[***SELF-POLICING SPOILER ALERT***] Olivia(Yara Shahidi) is daddy's little executive. Although the film pretends otherwise, there's a strong possibility that she's the one with the shrewd business mind. The audience never sees [***SELF-POLICING SPOILER ALERT***] Olivia(Yara Shahidi) is daddy's little executive. Although the film pretends otherwise, there's a strong possibility that she's the one with the shrewd business mind. The audience never sees Olivia's imaginary friends. Unlike Disney's "The Barefoot Executive" where the audience sees the network television programming chimp that Steven Post(Kurt Russell) exploits for his own personal gain. Since you can compensate a lower primate with bananas, there's nothing particularly unethical about the opportunistic mailboy taking all the credit for Raffles' media savviness. But your own flesh and blood? Evan(Eddie Murphy) has no scruples. The financial executive never considers the possibility that Olivia might be a child prodigy. If he did, another Lennon-esque title, "Gimme Some Truth", would emerge out from the film's subtext and cannibalize the bizarre children's movie's premise about a cabal of princesses who crunch numbers. "Imagine That" knows less about its demographics than the concurrent "Land of the Lost". In "Drop Dead Fred", Phoebe Cates saw her imaginary friend, whereas the little girl in "Opal Dream"(based on the novel "Pobby and Dingan" by Ben Rice) doesn't. Both films knew its respective audiences. Meanwhile, "Imagine That" has Eddie Murphy mugging for the camera, to little comedic effect, before thrusting his business portfolios at the thin air. Blanket, my ass. Olivia is at that tender age where children don't want to beat their parents. That's why she takes no credit for her father's success. Expand

Our family enjoyed the movie, funny and charming. I think more people should keep an open mind. I think Eddie Murphy is getting a bad rap since his last few movies bombed.

Thomas Haden Church is brilliant as Johnny Whitefeather

Imagine That is simply a nice kids film.
A bit of a modern fairy tale, Imagine that isn't bad nor great. A decent kids film with a few laughs and not really very memorable. Murphy does well and overall its cute fun.

Mr. Murphy rises to every occasion, not only with the crisp wit that has long been his hallmark, but with restraint and tenderness that serve him well.
