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 pranents and that they tell her to not to read books.and i think it's weard that her pranents don't let her read books and telll her to watch t.v instend.

Wonderful Roald Dahl movie about a precocious, brilliant little girl who comes from a hateful, deceitful family of television watchers. She dreams of one day going to school. When she finally gets to go to school she makes new friends, especially with her teacher, Ms. Honey. However, she has to confront a beast of a principal who hates little children and likes to literally "throw them by their pigtails" or "toss them in the chokie." Matilda befriends her teacher, Ms. Honey, and ultimately figures out how to improve her situation at home, at school, and for the rest of her life. Over-the-top but wonderful story about overcoming all obstacles if you believe you can and TRY.

Matilda I highly recommend to families of children any age! It is hilarious and shows that you should stand up for yourself and be you!
