Superb, wonderful, and a queer-coded classic! For all of us who've been a Matilda, it reminds us that our real family is who loves us and who we choose to love, not just who happened to make us. In a world of Trunchbowls, we can become Miss Honey.

I liked this comedy science fiction DVD. It is good for all ages. Matilda applies her untapped mental powers to rid the school of the evil, child-hating headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, and restore her nice teacher, Miss Honey, to financial security.

Based off of the novel of the same name, Matilda the movie was directed by Danny DeVito, and produced by Michael Shamberg. Matilda is about a young girl with supernatural powers, who lives in a toxic environment surrounded by her neglectful parents, and a bully of a brother. Matilda finds solace in her teacher, Miss. Honey, and also makes several friends once entering a new school. I find this movie a classic, and the acting is phenomenal throughout. This is definitely one of my childhood favourites, and if you haven’t seen this movie yet, I recommend you check this out now! I would rate this movie 4.5/5.

This movie will warm your heart and excite your mind through the eyes of Matilda. Matilda is a young gifted girl with a heart of gold, and sadly, very distant parents. To make matters worse, the school principal Ms. Trunchbull is an absolute monster who bullies all the students. Luckily, Matilda discovers that she has the power of telekinesis and begins defending herself and her friends from the evil principal, and also forms a close relationship with her teacher Miss Honey. This movie will shock you and warm you as you see the struggles of this gifted girl looking for a positive light. The message of the film is that sometimes the best relationships are the ones you choose yourself, and that even when things seem bleak there is still hope. I would rate this film 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who may feel different and are seeking a happy ending.

Rented for my almost 6 year old daughter and she loved it. Said she wishes she knew how to do magic and wants to watch it again

Oh good you got this movie I don't know when you got it but I am so glad that you got it I remember I asked you to get it and you did it is the same movie I wanted you to get I can't believe it yes you got it i wanted to borrow this movie from my cousin but my mom told me not to barrow movies and she did have it on VHS and she still has it on VHS but they live in Toronto so i just finished watching this movie and i loved it it was also on TV on Teletoon it's so cool how they always put movies on TV so than you don't need to buy it. the best part i like is when the boy was getting chocolate cake the part i think it's funny is when the principal throws a littile girl over the fench the part i hate i don't like is when the principal keeps the kids later after school in the gym and that Matilda has mean parents and that they tell her to not to read books.and i think it's weard that her Parents don't let her read books and telll her to watch t.v instend. oct 25 2014

“Both Matilda and Lavender were enthralled. It was quite clear to them that they were at this moment standing in the presence of a master. Here was somebody who had brought the art of skulduggery to the highest point of perfection, somebody, moreover, who was willing to risk life and limb in pursuit of her calling. They gazed in wonder at this goddess, and suddenly even the boil on her nose was no longer a blemish but a badge of courage.”
― Roald Dahl, Matilda

“You seemed so far away," Miss Honey whispered, awestruck.

"Oh, I was. I was flying past the stars on silver wings," Matilda said. "It was wonderful.”

“Matilda said, "Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it's unbelievable...”
