Quotes

[as Jeff and Molly watch Jenny skate]
Jeff: She loves it here, huh?
Molly: Skating?
Jeff: Living on the desert.
Molly: Yes, she does, probably more than anybody I know.
Jeff: So I suppose you don't think she's wasting her life either, do you?
Molly: I don't know. I can't answer for her. But I'll tell you one thing, though: you don't have to be out in the desert to waste her life. You're going to waste your life standing under the Eiffel Tower.
Jeff: You're probably right.

An odd entry in the Peanuts film series
29 April 2001 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Unlike the rest of the Peanuts specials, this one is mostly a live action film, with animation mostly limited to Spike and some cameo appearances by the regular Peanuts cast. Mostly I see it as father Charles' affectionate gift of a starring film role to his daughter Jill. It was also a great way to showcase the ice rink Charles owned.
