By turns frenetic and flat-footed, Mr. Magoo is an uninspired live-action comedy.

If you ever wanted to know how awful a Jackie Chan movie would be without Jackie Chan, this is it.

Silly live-action '90s remake of cartoon; pratfalls abound.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mr. Magoo is a 1997 live-action adaptation of the popular cartoon series dating back to the late 1940s. Just like the cartoon, this Mr. Magoo (played to the hilt by Leslie Nielsen) creates frequent and unrelenting pratfall violence due to his extreme nearsightedness, resulting in, among other things, explosions, car chases, falls from great heights, etc.. There's also some fighting involving kicking, punching, and gunplay, as well as slapstick violence in which male characters fall from high places and injure their groin regions by straddling whichever objects they manage to land upon. There's also some mild sexual innuendo due to misunderstandings. Infrequent profanity includes "hell" and "damn." At the end of the movie there is a disclaimer informing the viewer that Mr. Magoo is a fictional character not intended to represent the visually impaired, and that many visually impaired people lead healthy and productive lives.
