Mr. Magoo is an eccentric millionaire with terrible eyesight who refuses to use eyeglasses, therefore he always gets into trouble. During a museum robbery he accidentally gets a priceless gem called the Star of Kurdistan and starts to trace the way for the arch-criminals--Austin Cloquet and Ortega "The Piranha" Peru-- who had wanted to steal it. Meanwhile, two federal agents, Stupak and Anders, lead the manhunt for Mr. Magoo himself.Written by

[at the alter on his wedding day, Peru does not realize his bride is actually Magoo in disguise]
Before we take our sacred vows, precious one, I have a surprise.
[Peru takes out the ruby, when Magoo lifts the veil]
So do I! Adios, amor. Nuevo nacho.
[hugs and kisses Peru on the cheek]
It wouldn't last! I've never loved you!

The movie "Mr. Magoo" is an adaptation of the popular cartoon. For what it's worth, it does a good job of presenting itself as a live-action cartoon. Leslie Nielsen has made a career of acting in screwball comedy. He seems to fit his role well as the famously weak-eyed character. In this day and age of political correctness, making a movie such as this was bound to raise a few hackles. The little disclaimer run by Disney about the blind should give you an idea what the PC movement has done to movies today. The point of the cartoon was not to put down the blind at all. So forget what others say, and look this "Magoo" over!
