Cutesy homeless pair (a man and a little girl!!!) bum around from town to town (!) until they literally run in to a sympathetic lawyer (!!!), and that's just the set-up (unbelievable!). Dated because Hughes intentionally means to conjure up the days and spirit of Shirley Temple's joie d'vivre this only achieves a violation of audience goodwill. 3 year olds will disagree w/my assessment, I grant you that.
John Hughes got into making movies with kids in the 90s instead of teens, Home Alone was good, but this one was more mediocre, I think. I saw it a long time ago, I'd like to see it again and rewrite this.
Excellent film and I really enjoyed it. I agree with all the other people that this is a really great film. I doubt my rating will help matters but we'll see. It's a shame we haven't seen Porter in anything since this film. My only qualm is if they might have cut down slightly on the comedy, but it was still a great film. I wondered why this hadn't got a higher rating. Just shows, doesn't it?
I don't understand why this movie got such low ratings by the RT critics, I really thought that this movie was sweet and charming. I really love movies from the 90's, and even though I found this movie predictable I still wanted to see what happened to the characters involved. Also I think it was fun to see James Belushi in a much younger and skinnier version of himself.
A true little classic movie with a cute little girl name Curly Sue. One of the of the most memerable movies you had ever seen, and the story that she lives. James Belushi played a father that is strogling to keep his only family together and hope to make it grow. It is a movie that is worth seeing!
Back when James Belushi could do no wrong in comedies. Then he got fat. Hubba hubba! This is a rags to riches type tale that has been done many times but Belushi and the little girl make it a classic. Oh special tidbit of info for ya. Steve Carrell plays a waiter that throws them out of a restraunt. He didn't even have a speaking part.
