My children really like watching Eddie Murphy and we have most of his films, I thought this looked like a fun one to watch with the kids and it was only £3 so I picked it up.
After watching it, I felt overall I had enjoyed it but it's definitely one of my least favourite films of his, it was a bit hit and miss, with some parts being great and others leaving me wanting to switch it off. All that said, Eddie was still funny to watch and my kids liked it, won't be watching it again though.

I'd call myself an Eddie Murphy fan, I've lost count of the number of times I have had to convince sceptics that he once ruled the cinema world back in the 1980s. There are those who seem to have a poisonous agenda about the man and his work post 1990. Yep, there's a lot of rubbish there on his CV, but quite often it's harmless rubbish with some value to the easy going film fan, in fact the number of outright offencive stinkers are surprisingly low in his 30 year career (Norbit, good grief!).

Which brings us to Imagine That, a genuinely sweet film that is devoid of blunderbuss effects and plays out via good human interactions. True, it's fanciful fluff that ends up as you'd expect, while a splendid cast featuring Thomas Haden Church, Ronny Cox and Martin Sheen are going through the motions and earning an easy dollar. But it never once gets tired and Murphy gets on occasion to show his comedic chops.

Some of the more adult threads involving corporate politics will go over the heads of the kids, and likewise the father/daughter imaginary friends angle only resonates with those of a similar persuasion, but the film is trying to cover all bases. Clearly it doesn't all work, otherwise the picture would be better thought of, yet a decent family time filler it rounds out to be. I wouldn't advocate spending money to rent it, mind, but there are worse things in cinema life than watching this with a child you hold dear. 6/10

The topsy turvy carrer of Eddie Murphy (Beverly Hills Cop) takes a decent footing in this fun family comedy, which is quite similar territory to Dwane Johnson's The Game Plan from a couple of years prior to this offering. Imagine That, takes to the World of financial advisement, as Evan Danielson's (Murphy) promising carer has hit some bumps, as he comes up against the eccentric & successful Johnny Whitefeather (Haden Chruch). Evan's estranged wife Trish (Ari parker) and more importantly his 7 year old daughter Olivia (Shahidi) who he hasn't shown much time for, start to re-connect & she introduces him to her imaginary friends, who it turns out, have some hot tips to help Evan's carer, but it's not going to be all smooth running.

Overall i found this film hit the mark more often than not. For the most part Eddie Murphy was very good & believable, as he played things in a sensible manner, although with a couple of those OTT shouting scenes. Yara Shahidi (The First Family) was perfect as the sweet daughter with imaginary friends & had a good rapport with Murphy. Thomas Haden Church (Sideways), Ronny Cox (BHCop), Nicole Ari Parker (Soul Food) & a cameo from Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now) added good backbone to the story in support to Murphy.

'Imagine THAT' is a fantasy comedy-drama movie, which upon its release received a mixed response from critics and shockingly flopped at the box-office.

'Imagine THAT' concentrates on the relationship between a busy father, Evan Danielson (Eddie Murphy) whose priority is his work, and his daughter, Olivia (Yara Shahidi) who has access to an imaginery world where she has imaginery friends. The movie shows how Evan who is a financial executive starts struggling at work and as a result seeks help from Olivia's imaginery friends, does it help, you need to watch it to find out.

The only minor flaw of the movie is the main story, which shows the father not having time for his daughter due to his work. This subject is not new and has been dealt with too many times before. This flaw however, is greatly compensated with a sweet all-round good movie.

The story is straight forward, which is perfect for the whole family including the kids to watch. The imaginery world theme will be a HIT with the kids. If I had watched the movie when I was a kid, it would've been so exciting. Saying that, I'm an adult and I was still excited.

I simply loved the chemistry between Murphy and Shahidi, their portrayal of the father and daghter relationship was simply touching.

Murphy is on-form after a long time, his comic timing is brilliant and his acting in general is top-notch. Shahidi is also a treat to watch and performs naturally with Murphy. Thomas Haden Church who plays Murphy's work rival in the movie is entertaining.

The direction provided by Karey Kirkpatrick is competent as he manages to extract fine performances from the cast and succeeds in making the movie touching and emotional.
