Movie Reviews

A Great Movie
Kimberly Kettler | 01/05/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I think Bogus is a great movie. I never saw it in the theater because I didn't like the title and I think obviously a lot of other people felt the same way I did about the title and didn't go see it for that, too. Albert (Haley Joel Osment) has to go live with his godmother, Harriet (Whoppi), that no one knew existed until Albert's mom was killed in a car accident. At first, Harriet doesn't like the idea of him coming to live with her and what seems to bother her most is that he is white and she's black. His mom's death was very sad for him and then going to live with some stranger in New York probably made everything worse. So Albert ends up metting an imaginary friend, Bogus, that no one can see but him. Even though I dont like the title, the movie makes up for it and everyone should go see it cause it is a great movie!"
Nothing "Bogus" about this film except the title

"How does anyone cope with a situation that's almost intolerable? In young Albert's (Osment) case, he invents an imaginary friend "Bogus" (Depardieu) when his Mom dies and he's forced to move from familiar Las Vegas to New Jersey with a Godmother, Harriet, (Goldberg) that he's never met before.

But, Bogus isn't just a figment of Albert's imagination. He's a just a part of the magic that connects us all.

"Bogus" is a film that both parents and kids can enjoy. It's warm, funny, and worthwhile. I think Osment and Depardieu have to be one of the best acting teams ever. Whoopi Goldberg is always a delight.

It makes you love any child in this world

"Bogus is a movie that makes you feel that every child deserves to be loved and cared for. The actor Haley Osment is the real soul of this movie. He acts so well that he is the best actor to be casted on this movie . Recommended and highly rated by most of our community here !"
