Sharp Movie
24 July 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

When I say that Little Men is a 'sharp' movie, I mean that it has a witty sense to it. Though it will never match the success of Little Women, I feel that it comes pretty dang close. I don't know why people dislike it so much. I thought the actors did a fine job, especially newcomer Ben Cook who played Dan. You could feel with and for the characters as you could in Little Women, but the atmosphere is different at least, and it is refreshing. 8 out of 10.
