    ive probably watched it 20 times. i first watched this when i was like 7, and it never gets old :)
  • A classic movie about a little girl with powers that she can use her mind with.

    This is one of the best movie i've seen but not my fave one.Matilda is a 6 year old girl who loves to read and has a great mind according to what her teacher says but what I was concerned with was how did Matilda get her powers and how did she defeat Trunchbull when no one was noticing.This is a all time classic with family problems.I would like to see another version of the movie a bit like what they did for Charlie and the chocolate factory.moreless
