MY GIRL (Theatrical Release USA 1991)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

My Girl
—a female coming of age story—has so many things happening in one young girl’s life that it makes a person wonder how she moves through so many dramatic life events. The story has been thoughtfully written and successfully captures the twelve to thirteen-year-old female mindset. It’s sweet and borders on a classic children’s film. Watch for Macaulay Culkin. Dan Aykroyd plays well in this non-comedy film. Good work for Director Howard Zieff who catches the heart and soul of the story.
