Rating: 1/5 -- Reprehensible from start to finish, and utterly manipulative and mindless to boot. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- The film has a desperately cutesy-pie charm that drips with flop sweat. Full Review

Rating: C -- A disappointingly sentimental and shallow film from John Hughes about the homeless Full Review
Aug 10, 2011
Everyone who has to do with it -- particularly John Hughes, the writer, director and producer of it -- should be ashamed. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- It's the first film in which Hughes flat-out sentimentalizes being rich--moreover, selling out. Full Review

Description by

Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) might look like a cherub, but this street urchin has a lot of tricks up her sleeve. She and her streetwise guardian, Bill Dancer (James Belushi), can scam with the best of them. When they pull a fast one on Grey Ellison (Kelly Lynch), a high-powered corporate attorney, they find themselves living in her luxurious apartment and taking advantage of her generosity, enjoying fine food and new clothes. Grey's snobby boyfriend thinks that she has lost her mind in allowing these strangers access to her home, but Grey sees the good in Bill and Curly Sue and realizes that they bring out a part of her that she had lost. Ultimately, this trio comes to understand that they make a great team.
