Based on the acclaimed sci-fi short story by Lewis Padgett, The Last Mimzy tells the story of two children who discover a mysterious box containing strange devices they think are toys. As the siblings explore the unique objects, they begin to display higher and higher intelligence levels -- growing far beyond genius. Realizing that something extraordinary is happening, the children embark on a mission to save our future before time runs out and things quickly spin wildly out of control.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics 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.

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

Quirky sci-fi adventure best for fantasy lovers.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that despite its whimsical title, this fantasy adventure incorporates many sci-fi elements that may frighten sensitive children. It's unclear whether the mysterious toys the children find are alien, from the past or future, good or evil. Mimzy (a talking stuffed rabbit) speaks in a buzzing whisper that only Emma can hear, and the toy's many close-ups border on the menacing: Just what does the white rabbit want? FBI agents bust in the family's door and take everyone into custody under the laws of the Patriot Act. The young protagonists speak telepathically with each other and the Mimzy. Ultimately it's a harmless fantasy, but some scenes featuring the strange devices can be creepy, even for adults.
