The thing is though, this magnifying film is designed to lay on top of your
sheet of paper to read.

As with all lenses, the film you speak of (a fresnel lens) acts at a
distance. Unless you have a larger area of film than you have original
display area, you will either get no magnification, or only be able to
see part of the display. If you hold it a little away from the screen,
sure, it gets bigger, but then the box gets thicker...
