Story: Two children, Noah and Emma, find an interesting metal box on the beach that changes their lives. As they play with the toys inside they discover each item has a special purpose. A stuffed bunny named Mimzy tells Emma how to work the toys and both children develop higher intelligence and other special abilities. One of Noah’s experiments draws the attention of Homeland Security and things go downhill from there.
Extras: This DVD has Infinifilmâ„¢ which allows you watch the movie while information points pop up. You select enter if you’re interested in this director’s comment or deleted scene or that interview or special effects short and it plays that item. Or, you can click through the Infinifilmâ„¢ menu and get just those things you want including deleted and extended scenes. the DVD also contains three mini games and supposedly exclusive content if you connect to the Internet. But from what I can find, the net-con only links you to one more game.
What this DVD does not have is subtitles. I tried selecting subtitles from the main menu and later from within the movie but that feature, while listed, wasn’t available. This is hugely problematic for people with hearing issues.
