Mr. Magoo is a 1997 American comedy film directed by Hong Kong film veteran Stanley Tong (his sole English language film) and written by Pat Proft and Tom Sherohman. A live-action film adaptation of UPA's cartoon of the same name, it was produced by Walt Disney Pictures, and starred Leslie Nielsen as the title character, alongside Kelly Lynch, Matt Keeslar, Nick Chinlund, Stephen Tobolowsky, Ernie Hudson, Jennifer Garner and Malcolm McDowell.
The film was a critical and commercial failure, grossing $28 million, falling short of its $30 million budget.
Criticism singled out the seemingly mocking portrayal of people with disabilities although The Walt Disney Company placed a disclaimer right before the closing credits.
