Vada is a small-town tomboy who spends most of her time playing with her best friend (Macaulay Culkin), and worrying that she has contracted the ailments of her father's most recent customers.

    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.
