The Last Mimzy

Synopsis: The siblings Noah and Emma travel with their mother Jo from Seattle to the family cottage in Whidbey Island to spend a couple of days while their workaholic father David Wilder is working. They find a box of toys from the future in the water and bring it home, and Emma finds a stuffed rabbit called Mimzy, and stones and a weird object, but they hide their findings from their parents. Mimzy talks telepathically to Emma and the siblings develop special abilities, increasing their intelligences to the level of genius. Their father becomes very proud when Noah presents a magnificent design in the fair of science and technology, and his teacher Larry White and his mystic wife Naomi Schwartz become interested in the boy when he draws a mandala. When Noah accidentally assembles the objects and activates a powerful generator creating a blackout in the state, the FBI arrests the family trying to disclose the mystery. But Emma unravels the importance to send Mimzy back to the future.

Ok, everybody.


Let's settle down.

Today I'm going to

show you a story.

Let's all tune in together.

A long time ago...

...the soul of our planet was sick.

People had become isolated...

...and warlike.

Our world was frightened.

It was dying.

But a great scientist...

...was trying to save us.

He had tried many times...

...and he knew

he could only try once more.

This was the last mimzy.

It's gotta be my new braces.

I'm not a terrorist, ok?

Ah, you sure about that?

Let's see in your pockets.

That's the third time she's done that.

We're gonna be late for the test.

Have you studied?

All night. I'm freaked out.


Check your messages.

Whoa. Gee, thanks, man.

Courtesy of my cousin Bob.

Took the test last week. Cool.

Listen up. All right?

Now, just a reminder...

Science fair projects are

due one week after vacation.

Oh, come on!

It's gonna be a great fair this year.

There's lots of great exhibits.

Um, you have tests

sitting in front of you.

Noah, you're not an ameba.

You have a spine.

Use it, sit up straight.

That goes for all of you.

Come on, you guys.

Let's get focused here.

You have 30 minutes...

...and begin.

So, how d'you do?

Total choke.

You didn't use the text I sent you.

Mr. White coughed. I think he saw.

You're such a wuss. Hey, look at this.

Whoa. I'm in the front...

I have times four.

Hey, dude,

d'you wanna come over?

Can't. Leaving for Whidbey in an hour.


For easter vacation?

- How lame!

- Tell me about it.


Oh, hey, sweetheart, how's it going?

I packed up the car already.

You were supposed to be home.

Listen, we're gonna leave

first thing in the morning.

I promise. But you gotta tell the kids

there was nothing I could do about it.

- Oh, sweetheart.

- I'm sorry.

I'm gonna get home late

so eat without me, ok?

Emma, where are you?

We're eating.

- Coming, mom!

- Ok.

Know what? It snapped.

Oh, honey, sit down,

we can fix it later.


No, you're the sensitive little genius.

Why don't you do it?

I can't do it.

I don't have dexterity.

Dexterity? What kind of mutant are you?

Noah. Fine.

Where's the stupid string?

It's in my stupid hand.

Why couldn't I have a normal sister

like everyone else?

Come on, sit down...

So that we can eat like a family, ok?


They killed it!

How else would you eat it?

- Mommy, I don't understand.

- What?

Why did they have to kill it?

He didn't do anything to anyone.

What about that chopped-up cow

you're eating?

What chopped-up cow?

What do you think hamburger is?

Did you have to?

You there?

- Dad!

- Heh!

- You're home.

- Yeah.

Hey, I'm sorry about tonight, ok?


Oh, you're in a bad mood, are you?

Is it 'cause Im late?

Hm? What is it?

Your sister or school, what is it?

School! School sucks!


What else? Ahhh.

What else?

- Life sucks.

- Life sucks.

- I suck.

- You suck.

All right. Well, just put

it on pause for a second...

...because I wanna tell you,

you're probably right.

Because sometimes life does suck...

...and sometimes school sucks, but...'re completely wrong

on the Noah Wilder front.

I should know, I mean

I've lived with him for...

How old are you? 10?

And, uh, I will put it in writing... guarantee, full warranty...

...whatever you want, to tell you...

...that Noah Wilder does not suck.

In fact...

...he's the greatest kid I know.

Y- Yeah? Yeah?

Sorry, hope I didn't wake you up.

No, no.

Ah, no, no, listen...

If he accepts the motion, we're done.

Don't you dare,

I'll be there in 20 minutes.


Sorry, Jo. Take the kids
