Storyline

After her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the "splunks", going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children's home. Older children will probably get the most out of this movie. Written by Amelia Chanowith

Trivia

In the scene where Pippi, on her own accord, sits in a corner (despite being told to do so by the teacher Ms. Messerschmidt) in the classroom of the Rocksby Children's Home, note some pages of Maurice Sendak's classic storybook "Where the Wild Things Are" tacked on the bulletin board next to her.

Crazy Credits

The ending credits begins with a recap of footage from the film (including "B-roll" footage not in it) as a reprise of the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play, and then dissolves into a still shot of Pippi in the dress and bonnet that she wore for the "riding into town" sequence of the film. As the credits begin to roll, it becomes a trace-over illustration portrait, which is seen for the remainder of the credits. See more »

No wonder everything doesn't fall togeather perfectly. it's fantasy for goodness sake!
13 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a 59 yr old man who watched this movie with his grandkids. We all enjoyed it immensely.

It had everything it should have for a movie that was based on fantastic events. A little girl who had super natural powers, a sea captain ( her father) who was the king of a cannibal tribe, a horse who to some extent could talk, at least well enough that Pipi could umderstand him.

There was also a flying motorcycle, and a flying machine that Pipi powered by twirling around with a broom.

I wouldn't have enjoyed it near as much, had my grand kids not been there to ooh, ahh, and giggle, at what was taking place. It was a very enjoyable movie, and well worth spending my time watching. If you have kids to watch it with, it will be that much more enjoyable.
