Consensus: The Last Mimzy makes efforts to be a fun children's movie, but unsuccessfully juggles too many genres and subplots -- eventually settling as an unfocused, slightly dull affair.

New Line powerbroker/director Robert Shaye has made a children's film for stoners, a trippy, psychedelic fable that belongs in the DVD section of New Age bookstores alongside the strangely similar What The Fuck Do We Know?

The special effects are kinda cheesy, and it's a low-rent E.T.

Heather Huntington

Does an excellent job both making science fiction accessible for a younger audience.

Wholesome, eager entertainment that doesn't talk down.

I like to refer to it as "Donnie Darko" sans the violence if aimed towards kids...

I don't know. I just really liked the Alice in Wonderland references.

One of the best kids movies that I have seen in the last decade. It has a very imaginative child-like story, and it does go somewhere, and for the most part,… More
