Movie Info

Tomboy Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky) has good reason to be morbid: her mother died giving birth to her, and her father (Dan Aykroyd) operates a funeral service out of their home. The other kids think she's a freak, and it certainly doesn't help that her best friend, Thomas J. Sennett (Macaulay Culkin), is a boy. To make matters worse, Vada is desperately in love with her English teacher, Mr. Bixler (Griffin Dunne). What's an 11-year-old girl to do?

Audience Reviews for My Girl

  • Nov 30, 2017
    Above average coming of age film featuring a good cast, and two terrific child actors at the perfect ages for these roles. This is probably Culkin's best role because it's understated. He's very good in Jacob's Ladder too. Yes, this movie is a little contrived and sappy, but most tearjerkers are. This movie has enough charm, decent acting and a nice early 70's period feel to it. Overall, not a bad film. Much better than the totally unnecessary sequel.

    Coming of age tale which evoked an emotional response. Job done! Bonus's being the presence of Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Lee Curtis & Macaulay Culkin.

    An emotional and powerful tale for kids about tackling grief. The "Man in the Moon" poem I won't forget.

    A funny and touching motion picture about family, growing up and friendship that can surely touch its audience of all ages.
