The eccentric owner of a magical toy store surprises the shop's manager by turning over ownership to her in a warm-hearted comedy fantasy directed by Zach Helm and starring Jason Bateman, Dustin Hoffman, and Natalie Portman. Portman plays the manager of the store that seems to be a reflection of the people who run it, and Bateman stars as the detail-oriented accountant assigned the task of assessing the establishment's monetary value. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I see about 5 movies a week and this one was my favorite of the year so far.
Natalie Portman was terrific and can quietly steal most any scene she's in and Dustin Hoffman couldn't perform bad if he tried.
It's a magical story that any younger kid will love seeing a few times. Even the teenagers will like it, though they'll not admit it.
I'm willing to buy a copy to add to my very small collections of "keepers".
