It also doesn't hurt, of course, that she seems to have a dash of Sabrina the Teenage Witch about her.

More sticky sweet, ie grating, adventures with Pippi. Kids might enjoy it still.

March 14, 2009

Slightly entertaining, in a really stupid way.

Audience Reviews for The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking

I watched this a long time ago when I was a kid, so I don't really remember it, but I think it was okay, not so good that I remembered everything about it, but not so bad that I wanted to forget it, so, yeah, it's okay.

This film adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's tale is pretty good adventure and funny. When I was 13 years old, this time spunky but lovable Pippi is a brat who manages to give me ideas about driving adults over the edge.

Super Reviewer


It does not have the charm of the original Swedish Pippi films. The songs are annoying.
