Pollyanna emerges on the wide screen as the best live-actor movie Disney has ever made: a Niagara of drivel and a masterpiece of smarm.
Hayley Mills' work more than compensates for the film's lack of tautness and, at certain points, what seems to be an uncertain sense of direction.
This is Disney at its finest.
Heartwarming period coming-of-age tale with typical Disney gloss
One of Disney's best 1960's films...and one of Hayley's best.
It's so saccharine it's difficult to take seriously.
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.
Hayley Mills warms your heart and the upbeat optimistic preacher's daughter.
corny to be sure but also throughly enjoyable on that level
