for a bad day, quotable, nostalgic, hilarious and loveable
12 February 2019 | by novagirl11See all my reviews

This is a great movie to watch when you're having a bad day, especially if you watched it as a kid. Along with Passport to Paris, this was one of the Olsen twins' movies that my sisters and I watched the most, over and over and over....so many great quotable one-liners in this (for kids and adults) Plus, Kirstie Alley and Steve Guttenberg are hilarious and very lovable!
