I watched this movie first in the movie theaters when I was younger. I must tell you that I enjoyed it to the extreme. It's the type of movie that makes a young child want to go out and be the main character. You know what I mean, get a spy notebook and gadjets and try to spy on the next door neighbors. Come on, I did it, haha. Anyway, Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) plays Harriet, the lead character. She gets herself into a lot of trouble throughout the story, but has a lot of fun on the way too. She does an awesome job with that character. I also think the role of Sport (played by Gregory Smith of Everwood) was also great. He did a good job of making Sport a believeable character. Rosie O'Donnell also stars in this movie. I like this movie, and it is fun to see those actors such as Trachtenberg and Smith now and see how much they have grown since this movie.
