  1. Not often does a family film come along that is literate, clever, mischievous and just plain fun.
  2. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    Sweetly macabre charmer.
  3. 63
    A generally likeable cast atones for the underwritten script with fine comic spirit.
  4. A dreary poke-along adaptation of the Angela Sommer-Bodenburg children's stories.
  5. 40
    Has a terminal case of the cutes.
  6. 30
    Slight and goofy, this cut-rate attempt to mine "Harry Potterville" is undermined by its ostensible draw: the lead casting of Jonathan Lipnicki.

    Some things just don't translate . . . not with Lipnicki attached, at any rate. Stick with the books.
