Mrs. Ellen Andrews:
Annabel, how do you like yourself?
I'm not sure yet.
Mrs. Ellen Andrews:
Annabel, about your hair, I swear they only took off an inch and a half. And I bought you a new outfit, but you don't have to wear it. YOUR TEETH! Don't you like your teeth now?
Mom, I'm not talking about how I look, I'm talking about how I am. I'm a lot smarter than I realized I am, and a lot dumber too.

This movie, unlike the two so called remakes actually follows the book. My kids have all loved this movie and had no trouble at all relating to the incidents.Sure they have typing class instead of computer class but so what? So what if the Mom stays home and the Dad works. Many families do that today. The brother appears to be in half day kindergarten because he is picked up from school before lunch. Maybe Mom will go back to work next year. It may be a bit dated but that doesn't detract from the movie at all.
Unlike many modern movies the kids are not smart mouthed brats who get away with such behavior. There are no gross jokes or rude, stupid humor.
This is a fun movie for families, especially mothers and daughters to watch together. I would recommend this over the other two because it's how the author intended the story.
