AKA Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the US, for whatever reason.

Probably the most whimsical of the Harry Potter films, a really nice, light-hearted kid's tale, it was a fun film :)

My wife is a massive Harry Potter buff, she knows everything there is possible to know about the universe.

I'm very blasé about the franchise if I am truthful, but I always enjoy the movies when they are on the TV.

Believe it or not, I have never read the books though!

I was the same, my sister obsessed over the books, then the films started coming out, so I watched them with her, but I was just sort of a casual fan of the films, then I finally read the books about 10 years ago and I can understand why people got heavy into it. I'm still not a "hardcore" Harry Potter fan, but I do enjoy the movies and I did like the books quite a bit.
