I grew up watching this movie and it has definitely withstood the test of time in my books. Roald Dahl stories tend to lend themselves quite well to films and this one is no different. The Witches and James and the Giant Peach are a couple other examples. This movie is chock full of metaphors, good dialogue and lovable and outrageous characters. Matilda represents a voice for the underdogs of society. Her intelligence, gifts and positive nature shines right through the ignorance and selfishness of her philistine parents. Danny directed this as well as starring in it as Matilda's father. You could say that the negative nature of Matilda's parents and Agatha Trunchbull is altogether too common in today's world. I suppose that would be a question of whether the glass is half-full or half-empty though. This movie offers a lot of philosophical meanderings, despite being a kid's movie. It's an excellent movie for all ages. Great for those young at heart.

Some of my favorite quotes:

"Listen, you little wise acre. I'm smart, you're dumb; I'm big, you're little; I'm right, you're wrong. And there's nothing you can do about it."

- Harry Wormwood

After Matilda uses "Super Super Glue" to very sturdily glue her father's hat to his head; Zinnia is in the process of removing it]
Harry Wormwood: [rants at no one in particular] I will not be a figure of ridicule! I want respect and I want it now!
Zinnia Wormwood: I still don't see why you glued your hat on, Harry. I know you say you didn't, but you obviously did.
Harry Wormwood: I did not glue my hat to my head! The hat shrunk, the fibers fused to my hair!

Matilda Wormwood: [in a small voice] Hi, Dad.
Harry Wormwood: Are you in this family? [silence] Hello? Are you in this family?

Every now and then I see a movie intended for younger viewers that impresses me. Matilda, based on the book by Roald Dahl (Witches, James and The Giant Peach, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) is one such movie. This is the story of a young girl who is special. She is very intelligent, self-sufficient, and inquisitive.
When Matilda's parents (Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman) realize that she is old enough for school (sort of late) they send her to a private school run by a horribly mean woman who hates children. This environment, coupled with her life at home with a family that barely knows she is there, causes Matilda to discover and develop telekinetic powers. These she uses to help a friendly teacher and the rest of the students.
Once again a Roald Dahl book has been made into a very good movie. DeVito is excellent as a crooked used car salesman and Perlman is great as his wife. Matilda is played by the same actress who was in the remake of Miracle on 34th Street. The imagery and story are of the type that can only be found in stories for younger audiences. Although the movie does differ from the book this is a movie that I highly recommend.

Matilda [mara wilson], finds that she can have her own powers that come to her just like that. Her family never bother with her, and her teacher miss honey adopts her. EXCELLENT SCENERY, AND FUN FOR ANYONE.
