Pretty good movie (but mostly for the kids)
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty good overall. The story was poignant, the messages on friendship and doing your best were really good, and the acting was...well...it wasn't awful. Some of Mrs. McIntyre's lines sounded really forced and often the message was on the heavy-handed side, but the charm of the movie outweighs all these flaws. Molly was a pretty good character, but Emily stole all the scenes they were in. Emily and Mr. McIntyre were the best two characters, but the other ones were pretty cute too.

Molly and the other characters learned about adversity and how to overcome it and this is a good message for everyone to learn. The production values were awesome too--they really captured the essence of the era. And the movie clips really helped put what was going on in the world in perspective. This movie is good for the whole family but the adults will have to forgive some of the dialogue for its obviousness.
