Welcome to Nim's Island, a tropical paradise where imagination runs wild and adventure rules! Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler shine in this fun, "exhilarating and enchanting family picture" (San Francisco Chronicle) based on Wendy Orr's beloved novel.

Nim Rusoe (Breslin) lives on a deserted island with her scientist father Jack (Butler) and her best friends: Selkie, a sea lion; Fred, a bearded dragon lizard; and Galileo, a plucky pelican. But when Jack goes missing at sea and the island is "invaded," Nim reaches out via e-mail to the adventurous author (Foster) of her favorite books, and together, each discovers what it takes to truly become the hero of your own life story.

Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader | December 17, 2008

Foster proves adept at broad physical comedy, the animated sequences charm, and codirectors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett send up the make-believe Rover with panache.

Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper | April 07, 2008

It's a wondrous and warmhearted adventure story with some nifty special effects and some first-rate performances.

Tasha Robinson Chicago Tribune | April 07, 2008

There's a lot to like about spunky Breslin, even when she's unnecessarily recapping events or recapitulating Home Alone as she chases caricatured cruise-ship tourists from her island. She's a charismatic, energetic presence at the heart of the film

Claudia Puig USA Today | April 04, 2008

Nim's Island is a win-win proposition: an entertaining, diverting adventure saga that offers excitement and a relatable heroine for children, and also will remind their parents of favorite classics from their own youth.

Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle | April 04, 2008

Nim's aquatic adventures and those on land provide the majority of thrills in this exhilarating and enchanting family picture. It's the best I've seen this year and highly recommended for girls and for boys, too.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | April 04, 2008

It's worth spending 90 minutes on Nim's Island. You just wouldn't want to get stranded there.

Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter | April 04, 2008

Its characters, especially the youngest one, are engaging, and few adults are immune to childhood fantasies about secluded tropical isles.
