Storyline

Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

Ehhh movie...but amazing child actors
17 November 2017 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw "Wonder" last night, I like Owen Wilson and I wanted to catch the film early so that I could rave about it on IMDb.com, but I cannot do that.

The movie is just okay. I got the feeling that it was trying to make a significant social statement, I just wanted some fun entertainment instead. It seems like there are some movie directors in Hollywood that think they have something to "say" and they use their movies to get that message out....but it is just wasted energy, we don't care.

Now to the review: Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts are like peanut butter and gasoline....they are completely unbelievable as husband and wife, they don't mix well. Their acting skills kept the movie going but during the movie I kept thinking there is no way these two would ever hookup in real life.

And what would a new Hollywood movie be without a white chick and black guy hooking up? You guessed it, this movie does it's part at social engineering....liberal style.

This movie is not fun, it is a liberal fairy tale with a liberal message.

I gave the film a 6 because of the spectacular acting by ALL of the children. The kids in the film made it worth watching. Kudo's to the kids!
