Movie Reviews

Bittersweet comedy-drama
Nicoletta Carlone | Los Angeles | 11/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This a great movie. I saw it when it first came out in 1991 and have liked it ever since. It has a bittersweet storyline about a little girl, and her adoptive father who start out by trying to con a single, rich divorce lawyer out of funds, and end up building a family relationship with her. They teach her what it means to have a family and that there are things beyond money and work. She in turn shows them what having a home can really be like. The story is a timeless mix of comedy and drama. Sad and dark and times, and happy at others, it tells a realistic story of what it might be like to be homeless and parentless. Recommended for adults and kids 9 and up."
An endearing comedy with a BIG heart!

""When somebody gives you something to remember them by it means they are going to take off. If they are going to stick around you don't have to have anything to remember them by because they will be there." - Curly Sue

Curly Sue is one of those goose bumps, feel-good, heartwarming movies. While it has its moments of comedy, it is not one of those rolling on the floor laughing out loud movies. It's about a homeless man (John Belushi) who has taken care of this orphan girl, Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) since her birth on meager means, that is until they cross the path of an attorney (Kelly Lynch) who dares to care for this little girl and Bill (John Belushi). It's an incredible story full of compassion that is sure to warm your heart during the holidays or anytime of the year. Full of warmth, honesty and a kick of humor you are sure to fall in love with Curly Sue. This movie is a definite see for any movie lover."
If More Comedy/Drama/Family Movies Were This Stunning...
Stephen B. O'Blenis | Nova Scotia, Canada | 01/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Curly Sue" has the kind of premise that, usually, end up being only partially realized in movies. They end up good, but with a feeling that they could have been a lot better. In "Curly Sue", the title little girl and her father are homeless people who get by through pulling low-scale little scams - when the dad pretends to, say, be hit by a very expensive-looking car and mildly hurt, the two of them can often end up receiving a sympathy meal at a nice restaurant and perhaps even a place to stay for the night. (It sounds depressing, but it isn't - it skirts the path of being too downcast for a family movie without trivializing the issues it's depicting) After one incident, the woman Curly's dad Bill pretends to be injured by ends up taking them into her home; and despite her being engaged (to an approriately unlikable boor), the woman (named Grey) and Bill begin to have feelings for one another, even as Grey finds herself becoming quickly attached to Curly Sue.

At your local video store, you'll most likely find this one in the Family Movie section, where it'll easily be amongst the cream of the crop in those aisles. But it's also an uproarious comedy that outshines ninety per cent of the titles in the comedy section, and more genuinely moving and dramatic than most movies on the Drama shelves. "Curly Sue" hits every note it plays to perfection, has smashing performances (including James Belushi in his best role as Bill, Kelly Lynch as Grey, and Allison Porter unforgettable as the dynamic pint-sized fireball of a title character), and doesn't at all end up in the class of movies that are "good, but really should have been better" - it's the opposite, going well above even the high end of the potential one would think it has. An alltime winner."
