A tongue in cheek retelling of the famous tale we all know!
6 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tatum O'Neil seemed sort of like a surfer's girlfriend in this episode and pulled it off really well as the spoiled little brat who trespasses on the property of three grizzly residents. Her parents (who oddly enough have no names) are portrayed by Carole King and John Lithgow ("Third Rock From the Sun"). They seem to be the perfect heads of a very disfunctional family who totally ignore their daughter's needs and that's probably why she was always getting into trouble. Alez Kerras ("Webster") Brandis Kemp and Donovan Scott are Bill, Betty and Cubby--the three bears and Ms. Kemp is unfortunately the only one who brings a lively personality to the trio. Although it is flawed (but what film isn't?) this is a fun, enjoyable romp through childhood memories with the creative guidance of Miss Shelley Duvall.
