Critic Reviews for An American Girl: McKenna Shoots For the Stars

All Critics (3)

Not nearly as good as previous American Girl films, because without a historical context to divert the writers and director, all that's left is to focus on cheesy feel-good warmth and a formulaic plot.

There's a lot of cliches, corny lines and pink colors. But as an alternative to the standard girls-centric Disney Channel programs, you could do worse

Sweet, inspiring tale about a girl reaching for her dreams.
