User Reviews

The world would be a much brighter place to live aside with Pippi as a president...
4 February 2004 | by Razor_cutSee all my reviews

I just want to agree with fedtho that people who votes an 6 or less must see the film from a miserable perspective. Cause here in this movie we have a really good person worthy of imitation. Pippi is more like an superhero for every children (without super mussels or rocket launchers). She also fights for the weakest of children.

Children needs a girl like Pippi who aren't perfect looking but just as perfect as she is created.
