This film is set in the United States, yet in scenes such as the "kids yelling and chasing Harriet through town" segment, landmarks unique to Toronto, the capital city, are featured blatantly, including a flowerbed in the park shaped like the Canadian maple leaf, and background shots of buildings recognized worldwide as Toronto's architecture.

Excellent holiday viewing; wonderful acting all round.
I just saw this film yesterday morning - ideal relaxation for the holiday weekend. The story was OK, maybe a bit shallow for my taste - I'm haven't been a kid for a long time - but I was really taken with the acting. Everyone played his/her part beautifully, completely credible, and none was the frightful red-haired brat as used to be portrayed in children's movies.
I was particularly taken with Harriet herself, and am not surprised that she has gone on to greater things.
The main lesson learned from this film appears to be that two wrongs do not make a right. Bush note!
