Movie Info

Young orphan Pollyanna (Hayley Mills) believes life's most difficult problems can always be surmounted by a positive attitude and pragmatism. But when she moves in with her dour aunt (Jane Wyman), she is introduced to a range of disheartened folks who challenge her upbeat outlook. Not to be discouraged, she sets to work spreading hope and good cheer. However, when an inspired doctor (Richard Egan) leads the community in a campaign in opposition to her aunt, Pollyanna's goodwill is strained.

    I'm sure some people love this film, but I can't stand it. I hate absolutely everything about it. I hate the story, the characters, the music, and I especially hate Pollyanna. Whenever this film is on TV, I change the channel as fast as possible.

    Sickeningly sweet and a tad overlong, Pollyanna is a different kind of Disney live action movie. Whereas Old Yeller dealt with "adult themes" of death and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is an action film, Pollyanna wants the audience to believe there are idealic communities where one person can change everyone's attitude at the same time. Hayley Mills is relentlessly upbeat-until the finale, and the dour attitude goes away in the blink of an eye. The characters change because the script demands it, not because its organic over time. Each of the crusty townspeople gets a moment to show why they're deplorable on their ultimate way to redemption-I can almost see chapters in a book devoted to their stories before the overall story moves on. Even though Pollyanna is likely to give you a toothache from all the sugary sweetness, Mills and the cast eventually win you over. It's very hard to hate a little girl who is always smiling and trying to bring light into other people's lives.
