When Nim's father goes missing from the island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer Nim's Island. Based on the book by Wendy Orr and Kerry Millard.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: If Nim's Island were anything but a children's movie, the casting genius who suggested Jodie Foster as a potential love interest for Gerard Butler would be looking for a new occupation. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: 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. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Its characters, especially the youngest one, are engaging, and few adults are immune to childhood fantasies about secluded tropical isles. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Just when the movie needs real girl power, it leaves its heroine stranded. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Nim's island takes you away on a creative , heartwarming , adventure.

What a great family film. Kids will love this movie because of Nims adventures the humorous animals. Adults will love this movie again because of the adventure. And because the author who comes to help Nim is a germ freak(it will make more sense when you watch this movie!). All in all this movie is a great movie with a great overall point that everyone can enjoy. -The Review Master

Perty good

Nice, light-hearted, and fun. Good family movie.


I heart this movie. It's one of those things that make you feel good when you leave the theater. And I think Abigail Breslin did a really good job here.
