Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Watching Imagine That, I was beset by a feeling of intense depression.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average 'Imagine That' is amusing without ever being break-out funny — except for one scene,...

USA Today Full Review
Average Though Imagine That's message is benign, its adult focus is off-base, and every move feels too familiar, formulaic and telegraphed.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Evan Danielson (Eddie Murphy) and his seven-year-old daughter Olivia (Yara Shahidi) find it impossible to connect. He's too distracted by his career demands to understand the value of quality father-daughter time and she has all but given up on her Daddy. When the promotion of a lifetime is suddenly within his reach, Evan finds himself torn between his parental responsibilities and staving off his company rival, the annoyingly pseudo-mystical Johnny Whitefeather (Thomas Haden Church). Evan has always been a man in complete control, but when he really starts to lose it, Olivia steps in with her own bit of advice - winning stock tips courtesy of the princesses and queen who she visits through her security blanket - her "Goo-Gaa."

With Olivia and her imaginary friends leading the way, Evan is suddenly plunged into a world of dragons and other magical creatures - most of whom prove to be much less dangerous than some of his co-workers. He finds himself singing and dancing in public, eating ketchup-and-mustard-covered pancakes, and laughing with Olivia well into the night - and prospering in his career at the same time. Evan's growing need to climb even higher on the corporate ladder leads him to do some insanely childish things. It also makes him lose track of what is most valuable in his life. In the end, he learns that true success cannot be found in a stock portfolio.
