A lonely 9-year-old boy makes a new friend when he discovers a magical little man inside of a cupboard, but when one of the man's spells goes awry, the boy's entire family is shrunk down to four inches in height.
Comedy about a boy who is bullied and therefore decides to boost his image by saying that he belongs to a mafia family. Rik Boskamp, son of a nerdy accountant, will not be bullied. Inspired by a mafia film he gets an idea. He causes his elders to move and that his father is looked at for the dangerous mafia boss Paulo Boskampi in the new village. It soon turns out to work the plan. Rikkie Boskampi is no longer bullied, everyone is afraid of Paulo and treats them with respect. Until a bully from the past emerges. How long Rikkie may lie still before its discovered? This family film is based on the book by Marjon Hoffman.
The movie begins with a what if scenario. A really funny one and it sets the tone really well. The fun really keeps going all the way through. There are moments where the movie seems to kind of stop and it doesn't really feel right what happens. But apart from the fact that the movie tries to keep it as real as possible, there is still a big fantasy part to it all.
Which brings us to the point of the message. Pretty sure some will think it's a wrong one to glorify things, but that would be seeing this the wrong way. It's supposed to be fun and just entertain, not give you a wrong life advice. To be honest, I do think the movie is pretty good at pointing out the wrongness in being criminal. Again, just watch this and be entertained
