"You have to believe it to see it."


  • Director: Zach Helm
  • Genre: Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Science Fiction
  • Studio: Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC)
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 105 Mins

Stranger than Fiction writer Zach Helm makes his directorial debut with this family-friendly tale of an enchanted toy store. Dustin Hoffman hams it up as the eponymous 243-year-old proprietor, whose time on Earth is running out. He plans to pass the baton to his young assistant (a cutesy turn by Natalie Portman), but she has her heart set on becoming a composer. As you'd expect, the setting allows Helm to conjure up a colourful array of bells and whistles, but the paper-thin yarn fails to draw you in. Helm provides no context for the existence of the toy shop where supernatural shenanigans are an everyday occurrence, and he loses a vital sense of wonder when he veers from the point of view of the story's young narrator Eric (Zach Mills). Sadly, there's just not enough magic here to make it memorable.
