After the death of her mother, 14-year-old Casey is despondent. As she and her father Ben begin to drift apart, Casey finds a book of magic spells and tries to use one to bring her mother back to life. But the plan backfires, and instead she finds that she's animated Eve, a fashion-plate dress-up doll. Eve is excited to be both alive and nearly six feet tall, but she has a lot to learn about living in the real world - and Casey isn't so sure she has the desire or the patience to teach her.

In the movie, the toy store is named Kaboodles. They didn't change the name of the store for this movie; they really did film at a toy store named Kaboodles, near Point Grey in Vancouver, British Columbia. See more »
When Eve is sitting at the desk in the office, the man behind her is leaning over a desk talking to a woman, then gives the woman a file, then turns and walks towards Eve while looking at her, and walks away. Then every time the camera shows Eve again, the man in the background repeats the same exact action several times. See more »
Ben, did you see that big lady dancing? This is a night I'll never forget!
Neither will anyone else. I wonder who's asleep, Casey or the babysitter.

I just saw this last night on "The Wonderful World of Disney". I thought it was going to be a dumb kiddy movie, but I was soon wrong. I loved it! My only question is this: Was Tyra Banks typecast? Think about it. A supermodel playing a Barbie doll? I guess it was good. Actually, I loved this movie!
