Consensus: Despite a promising turn by newcomer Yara Shahidi, Imagine That is another pedestrian family comedy that squanders Eddie Murphy's comedic talents.

Time Out

Murphy at least tries to stay in character rather than overdoing the silly voices and physical knockabout, but maybe the material was so blah that he felt it wasn't worth the effort.

Cutesy? My pain was acutesy as the entire plot yawned before me.

It's silly enough that its target audience should get a kick out of it and its bearable for adults, and as far as family films go that's a lot better than you can usually expect.

This is a fairly likable family comedy.

Gary Goldstein
Chicago Tribune

Fortunately, the picture's not-so-secret weapon, star Eddie Murphy, gives this uneven effort a reason for being.

Fan The Fire

You might chuckle a couple of times, but it is literally a couple, and that's nowhere near enough humour, especially for kids.

Imagine That has a few nagging problems, none of which is Eddie Murphy's fault.

Anders Wotzke

[Murphy] continues to treat his career like it were a game of limbo, as Imagine That sees the once gifted comedian stoop to a horrendous new low.

it couldve been funnier, but its a safe family friendly comedy film that is entertaining for the whole family

It had enough love and support to be good, but not enough follow through.

A horrid family film. While the child star is convincing, Eddie Murphy was so bad in this film. He was both a terrible father and buisnessman! A film so bad, it… More
