I first saw this movie when I was nine years old. I liked it for that
I in fact tried to emulate Harriet and her friends. But those days are
now. What I am trying to say is don't say this is an awful movie because
found it dumb. Yes, some of it may be a little...juvenile. But remember,
WAS MADE for juveniles, not adults or anyone else but the age range of
If you are between the ages of eight and twelve, and you still hated it,
then yes, it is understandable. But it is ridiculous for an adult to say
that they hated this movie because it is 'too juvenile'. I think this

friends, and you will succeed beyond your dreams. I also read the book,
this movie is quite close to the book, which is a good thing for a movie
be. In totality, this is a cute movie with a good message, and if you
the movie, read the book too.
