Everyone who has to do with it -- particularly John Hughes, the writer, director and producer of it -- should be ashamed.

The film has a desperately cutesy-pie charm that drips with flop sweat.

A violent, offensive comedy.

Curly Sue is a cornball, soupy, syrupy, sentimental exercise in audience manipulation, but that's the good news, because this is a movie that works.
