Synopsis

Nim Rusoe is a girl who joins her father, a scientist, when he does research on marine life on an island. It's just the two of them but she spends her time making friends with all the animals she encounters, chatting on the computer and reading the adventure books of Alex Rover. When her father goes to do some research but when a storm strikes the island he doesn't come back, she gets worried and frightened. She then e-mails Alex Rover hoping that he will come but what she doesn't know is that Alex Rover is a woman who is agoraphobic and germaphobic. But her creation comes to life and eggs her to go. Unfortunately she has never gone anywhere before and is denied her necessities like her sanitary gel by the customs officer at the airport. In the meantime, Nim tries to be strong while waiting for Alex to arrive. —[email protected].

    Lovely, insightful and heartwarming

    I adored this movie, as a writer and as a lover of odd, interesting movies. My only beef was the silly, wooden, way overdone "Buccaneers" scene frankly, best left out entirely. A modern child wouldn't say "coming, mother…" it'd be more like an angry snap "coming, moooom!" And the animal scenes were also somewhat cheesy -but looking past that -- Aside from that it was a lovely, inspiring movie, as I am also an agoraphobic writer. Not quote as bad as Jodie Foster's character, though I have other obstacles. My characters also talk to me :) So the scenes between Alex the author and Alex the character were funny and delightful to watch.I see quite a few have trashed this movie saying a 10 year old girl would not be so strong, insightful and intelligent. This usually would be the case, but here Nim has been brought up on fresh food grown (or caught) on the Island (so it's all organic) No junk food, microwave dinners, preservative laden chemical crap which affects the brains of children (and adults), so it stands to reason that Nim's brain and muscles would be more active than an average child her age as she has not been poisoned on over processed rubbish food and sugars and not brainwashed by the subliminal programming of television, now does she sit all day at the TV or playing computer games. A bit of time on the net, yes, but not hours and hours on end.It was a delight to see a child so insightful and intelligent, but also a child needing someone to be there for her when things went awry.Jodie Foster's character was also awesome in the trip she made, from being boxed up in her home with bottles and bottles of hand sanitizers and tins of processed tomato soup, to brave swimming in the ocean and eating live island food. And in the end, it didn't matter, her whole life turned around for the better. Alex the writer came alive and when the Alex character left her, a real man came into her life :) Who looked just like her sexy, dashing hero and somewhat of an adventurer himself ;) I'm guessing life on the island just got a little more interesting. All three characters went through challenges and came out wiser and stronger in the end. Life is all about learning, adjusting, growing and breaking free.This movie is about all four.Sail to Nim's Island. Of course you'll have to do it in your mind, and as it is a metaphor for growing and breaking free from whatever holds you back in your own life, and sail the seas of your own subconscious and be amazed at the wisdom you find there. The ocean is a metaphor for the unconscious mind. Think about that :)

    Think Like A Kid And This Will Be Tolerable & Fun

    Silly? Yes. Predictable? Yes. For Kids? Yes. Entertaining? Yes.....even for adults, IF you don't take anything seriously and expect something a little dumb but charming.nonetheless. Picture yourself as a kid watching a movie and you'll enjoy it a lot more, because it's definitely a children's film. It also has an involving story. Once it starts you have to stick around and see how it winds up. With some movies, I could care less but this one, I cared.For those who have kids age 5-12, this is highly recommended. For adults, well, it's not bad. If you're looking for "clean" entertainment, you found it. It's not goody-goody, either, and it's not always a smart family movie (a father leaving his kid all alone for several days?) but it's a nice movie, has funny animal characters, a lead kid who is not a brat, nice island scenery, one big-name actress (Jodie Foster) and is a diversion for an hour-and-a-half.The little dragon "Fred" is the best of the non-humans. I don't know if that's the real noise that lizard makes, but it's fun to hear. Seals are always entertaining, too. The one in this film is very talented. As for the humans, Abigail Breslin as "Nim Rusoe" is a cute, likable kid. Gerard Butler plays both male leads and does them well enough that you forget he's doing two characters. Seeing Foster do slapstick while being a female "Mr. Monk" was a little odd but, I'm not going to knock her for trying.As another reviewer said here, put yourself in a little kid's shoes and enjoy the film.

    textbook example of raw star power overcoming all obstacles

    And when I refer above to "all obstacles," I mean a script that comes across like one of the animals on the island (all of whom are simply adorable) bit a chunk out of it, no one noticed, and they filmed it anyway.Butler, Foster, and Breslin between them generate enough electricity to power Manhattan or, in this case, at least a small island. They keep you glued to the screen in spite of the nonsense.The story contains a brief scene where an overweight Australian boy, along with his parents, is briefly on the island. He not only sees Mim but tracks her down and makes a connection. Seconds later, he has to leave and disappears from the story.The audience feels much the same way by the time the curtain closes. But it was a fun ride while it lasted.
