A kids' movie that's more serious - and substantial - than most.

Will remind parents of their own youth, and it will aid those living theirs out now to cope a little easier -- and that's just what a children's film should do.

Like the novel, Harriet the Spy is a rare children's story that celebrates the budding artistic spirit.

Harriet the Spy is an intelligent, insightful look at the tribulations of being a creative, misunderstood misfit at age eleven.

[The] movie really is supposed to be for kids after all, and since none of the material is too dark, it should do a decent job of keeping them entertained.

A below mediocre adaptation of the popular novel that is nonetheless served well by the two female leads, but all representative of the adults world (parents, teachers, psychologists) are narrow, standard-issue constructions.

The whimsical and meaningless first part dissolves into a mean spirited and disturbing concluding section.
