Goofs

Harry tells Shelly that he was a popular date in high school because he did "a killer frug." This can't be because the frug was a dance popular in the mid-1960s. The movie takes place in 1972, when Vada is 11. That means she was born in 1961. Her mother died two days after she was born. So Harry was not in high school when the frug was popular. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Vada Sultenfuss: I was born jaundiced. Once I sat on a toilet seat at a truck stop and caught hemorrhoids. And I've learned to live with this chicken bone that's been lodged in my throat for the past three years. So I knew Dad would be devastated when he learned of my latest affliction.

A touching movie
5 July 2002 | by Sonya WoodsSee all my reviews

I don't see why people are criticizing this movie unless they are taking it too seriously. It's a movie about an 11 year old girl who's mother died when she was a kid. she lives with her dad who works in a funeral parlor in his home and their weird aunt. Anna and Macauly looked so cute together. When Shelly(Curtis) applies for a job at the parlor as a makeup artist Vada(what a stupid name)feels like she is trying to take the position of the mother and tries to break them up. make sure you have a box of Kleenex for the end. It's so sad.
