The Wormwoods are a not so nice family who live in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. The father Harry Wormwood is a sleazy car salesman who is under constant monitor by the FBI and the mother Zinnia spends all day every day at the Bingo Hall playing Bingo. The Wormwoods fail to realize their mistake of a daughter Matilda is a child prodigy from the day she was born. At her request, her father reluctantly sends her to school at Crunchem Hall, a ratty looking school headed by Agatha Trunchbull, an ex-Olympic athlete and gold medal winner in the hammer throw who despises children, and gets sheer enjoyment out of torturing them in school. Matilda soon learns her first-grade teacher Miss Honey is the nicest person in her life, and actually respects her, but she soon learns Miss Honey has a dark past, and only she can be the one to come to her level and help her fix her life, with the help of strangely developed psychic powers. Based on the novel by Roald Dahl.

Narrator: "However, Mr. Wormwood failed to realize the mistake he just made. He told Matilda "When PEOPLE are bad, they need to be punished" instead of "When CHILDREN are bad.""

        this movie is great the trunchbull deserved what happend to her at the end of the movie
          10 years, 4 months ago
          I'll always love this movie! Also, the simmilarities between Matilda and Stephen King's Carrie are rediculous. I truly find it funny that Matilda is Carrie for kids. Either way, it's still a classic.

                                                  14 years, 7 months ago
                                                  It's one of those movies for kids that was great and full of imagination.
                                                  Still watch it to this day.
