Storyline

A young girl named Bridget Severson lives with her parents, brother, and grandmother. Her aunt Ruth comes by regularly too. Everyone but her grandmother, is too busy for hugging or showing affection. She soon finds out that they've talked her grandmother into going to a nursing home. Bridget, being so upset by this, follows a little creature named Huggins through her closet mirror to HuggaLand in search of a way to make her grandmother young again. In HuggaLand, she learns that eating the fruit of the young berry tree can give instant youth. Unfortunately, the only young berry tree grows in the Country/Land of Shrugs. She'll have to cross the sea of broken glass, pass the hairy behemoth, and venture into the evil Queen Admira's castle. Will Bridget succeed? Written by grrlpunk

Made me laugh, made me cry, made me deathly afraid of mirrors when I was 6.
10 July 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This was a great fantasyland adventure that I still enjoy watching at 21 years old. I remember I loved the adventure the little girl took into the hugga bunch world and it reminded me of the room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where the kids could eat everything. The witch gave me nightmares for about a week when i was 6 and the idea of an entire world existing behind my bedroom mirror completely freaked me out, but I still loved it! I remember wanting to be that girl so badly! This movie is one of those childhood memories that I won't ever forget and I can't wait to show it to my kids some day! It's just an all around great movie that any kid will love!
