The best of the series
19 January 2004 | by (MN) – See all my reviews

This movie is very well-done, even with the limited special effects of the 70's. I mean, how often do you see a bed with a balloon tied to it flying through the air? Anyway, the special effects aren't the only thing good about it. It also has a pretty good plot, even if it stretches the book a little. If you've seen "Pippi On the Run" or "Pippi Longstocking" but not this, you probably think, "Meh, the series is OK, but not all that good." You're wrong. This is Inger Nilsson at her finest. She gets to beat up big bad pirates for a good portion of the movie. She especially seems to scare Jacque the Knife. I won't give anything else away. go out and see if you can find this movie at Blockbuster.
