It may be a tad tedious for older viewers, but Madeline's clever, adventurous heroine is likely to charm its intended audience.

This pleasant but pedestrian live-action film has one great thing going for it in the shape of Hatty Jones, a tiny Brit with currant-bun eyes full of forthcoming transgression.
This charming kids' pic has aged very well indeed, and is a surefire selection for any young viewers who like their movies mischievous and magical.
Great for young kids and fans of the books.
A disarming, charming fable so artfully crafted that adults will fall under its spell.
...Adequately simple for children, though perhaps a bit pedestrian for adults.
In Madeline's final adventure, she uses her spunk and creativity in the service of compassion.
Deserves credit for solid professionalism.
A great adaptation of the children's series. The actors do a fine job, the story is good, and it's an entertaining movie.
"Madeline", the movie, is based on the children's books by Ludwig Bemelman featuring the spirited redheaded heroine, as the titular character who is the youngest of twelve girls living at a school which is about to be closed by Lord Cucuface (known in the movie as Lord Covington) after his wife dies. Madeline is as cute as a button and sometimes mischievous. Miss Clavel as the nun is a wonderful supporting character who is always trying to keep Madeline out of trouble. Pepito called "the Bad Hat" by the girls due to his bratty nature is the Spanish ambassador's son who lives next door to the girls. An endearing family film that is enjoyable to watch. The kids will love it.
Oh man... I saw this when it came out... YEARS ago.... really the book is MUCH better
