Hollywood Reporter - 06/07/2009
"What quickly yanks the story into a fresh realm in this screenplay by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson are a daughter's imaginary friends."
Variety - 06/07/2009
"[It's] likely that parents and their young offspring will be enchanted by those scenes in which the only special effect is the warm chemistry generated between sly pro Murphy and charming newcomer Shahidi."
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/10/2009
"Murphy stays interestingly in character....The film is really about the father-daughter relationship, and Murphy comes through as sincere, confused, lonely and with a good heart."
Los Angeles Times - 06/12/2009
"Murphy's his usual creative, quicksilver self....When he's on top of his game, particularly during several virtuoso comic sequences, you remember why Murphy ears the big bucks."
Wall Street Journal - 06/12/2009
"[The] child -- she's played by Yara Shahidi -- leads Mr. Murphy back to his own gifts, and she complements him in one delicate comic sequence after another."
Washington Post - 06/12/2009
"[A] redemptive act for Murphy....[He's] believable, sympathetic and often very funny..."
A formerly successful businessman (Eddie Murphy) watches as his own stock plummets, but his salvation may be found in his daughter's imagination in this fantasy-fueled comedy.
What if your daughter's imagination was the secret to your success' When a highly competitive money mogul (Eddie Murphy) finds his financial kingdom slipping, he turns to his 7-year-old daughter (Yara Shahidi) and her fantasy world of imaginary princesses for help. Embarking on a whirlwind journey of comic proportions, father and daughter are about to discover that sometimes all you need is a little imagination – and a lot of love – in this “feel-good winner with something for everyone” (Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com).
