Storyline

Mr.Magoo is an eccentric millionaire with very bad eyesight who refuses to use eyeglasses and therefore always gets into trouble. During the museum robbery he accidentally gets a priceless gem called the Star of Kurdistan, and begins to trace the way for the arch-criminals whose idea was to steal the gem - Austin Cloquet and Ortega "The Piranha" Peru, while two federal agents Stupak and Anders lead the manhunt for Mr.Magoo himself.

Crazy Credits

(Closing statement) The preceding film is not intended as an accurate portrayal of blindness or poor eyesight. Blindness or poor eyesight does not imply an impairment of one's ability to be employed in a wide range of jobs, raise a family, perform important civic duties or engage in a well-rounded life. All people with disabilities deserve a fair chance to live and work without being impeded by prejudice. See more »

Mr. Blindgoo
16 August 1998 | by (Gatineau, Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

Ha! Ha! Ha! I laughed all the movie. Leslie Nielsen knows how to make "stupid" movies. It's not the comedy of the year but it's great for family and friends who want to take a break from BIG BANG movies.

My Vote: 6/10
