One of Masterson's masterpieces!!
18 June 2003 | by ScottishDudeSee all my reviews

I strictly watched this movie because Mary Stuart Masterson was in it. My Little Girl had a pretty weird plot, having a rich girl(Masterson) helping out poor kids doesn't sound right. You would think rich people had more self-centered things to do like going to the mall or something. Anyway.... the movie as a whole was very good and realistic. And the best scene by far was the part when Masterson is dancing on the boat, showing off some of that 80's break dancing technique.
