Storyline

After her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the "splunks", going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children's home. Older children will probably get the most out of this movie. Written by Amelia Chanowith

Trivia

Fay Masterson was one of the runner-ups in the casting search to play the role of Pippi. Ken Annakin liked her so much that he wrote the part of the head girl at the children's home just for her. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits is a montage of children's book style illustrations of Pippi and her father, Captain Efraim Lockstocking, in various parts of the world (Sweden, Africa, India, Thailand, Alaska, China, and the seldom-featured Kurrekurredutt Island, the fictional South Pacific island where Captain Longstocking became king), as the credits appear over the negative spaces in each picture. The montage concludes with an illustration of the Hoptoad (Captain Longstocking's ship), which segues into the live action scene of it which starts the story. See more »

Strictly for the kiddies
6 May 2004 | by kevin_s_scrivnerSee all my reviews

I remember enjoying the Pipi Longstocking books in elementary school, and my 4-year-old loves this movie. As an adult, however, I find it painful to watch. It isn't that the movie is bad, at least not in the same sense that schlocky sci fi and horror movies are bad. The children do acceptable acting jobs, although the adult actors are lackluster. The sets, costumes, and special effects are adequate. The music is bouncy. There are lots of fun Pipi stunts and much childhood wish fulfillment. All good, clean fun. Somehow, though, the film is less than the sum of its parts.

I think it must be the plotting and pacing. The super-competent Pipi so outmatches her opponents -- a villainous real estate agent and an uncompassionate human services worker -- that you never feel any suspense or concern for her safety. In fact, Pipi comes across as such a smart-mouthed brat that I began to sympathize with her playmates' whiny father. The story itself meanders from incident to unrelated incident until the movie positively drags.

So, this is a movie that it is safe to let your kids watch unsupervised. That's a good thing, because you won't want to sit through it yourself, at least not more than once.
