Everybody has a superhero inside of them; it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word, this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into an adult superhero, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart, inside a ripped, godlike body, he revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! But he'll need to master these powers quickly to fight the deadly forces of evil.

One of the better DC movies in recent years. This movie has a lot of heart and is pretty fun.

At last! I finally know why Gomer Pyle would say, "Well Shazam!" Previously had no idea where that expression came from. Had zero expectations for this movie, which I have learned in life, is almost always a good thing. It is much easier to view something with an open mind when one has no baggage attached to it. Loved it!

This was an unexpected surprise. I didn't know anything about the character's background or the plot before I watched this and I had no expectations for it. This was a goofy, quirky, fun superhero movie. The basic premise of an ordinary boy who can morph into a powerful superhero just by saying "Shazam" was different from the usual superhero stories and it was refreshing and different. It was very funny and lighthearted and can be enjoyed by all ages.

PG-13 movie wasn't as I expected. It didn't quite follow 1930s version. Kind of marveled -pun intended- on non-Caucasian Wizard, a more inclusive cast & last person swearing I expected. Chuckled at the self-depreciating jokes especially on faster than a locomotive & jump tall buildings in a single bound straight out of 1939 Superman.

It’s a Movie for kids, lacking details and depth but fun and entertaining enough. The ending was a surprise and funny.

I liked this one more than I expected too. It was a fun origin story and was a hit for family movie night.

Cheesy, but in a good way. Not what Martin Scorsese would call cinema, but has a heart-warming story. Not everything has to be depressing and thought provoking. Let go of your serious adult "the world is going to end" feelings and enjoy it for what is was meant to be. Entertainment.

I loved it! True entertainment. Well written, keeps you guessing, good costumes, all is good. You don't have to have swearing, nudity, smoking, and drugs in a movie and this proves it. enjoy

[Shazam takes his siblings to a strip club]

Darla Dudley: Why are you covering my eyes?

Mary Bromfield: Really? This is the first place you think of? Wow!

Darla Dudley: Why can't I see what's inside?

Mary Bromfield: You are not old enough!

Darla Dudley: Old enough to know that was great music!

ArapahoeTina Feb 20, 2020

Freddy Freeman: What are your superpowers?
Shazam: Superpowers? Dude, I don’t even know how to pee in this thing!

Wizard: "Lay your hands on my staff."
Billy: "Gross."

Managed to get an adult joke in there. Cracked me up!

43 quotes in IMDb already including this (thanks to contributors:)

Yes! Carry my name, and with it, you carry all my powers (SHAZAM acronym.) The wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.

Quite a few on "family" in IMDb as:
"It's not a home till you call it a home. It's something you choose."

This however is not in IMDb:

Family is more than just a word. This is family.
