I rented this primarily to see Molly Ringwald all grown up. Turns out, this is a wonderful film! It has some sad moments, as well as funny and touching scenes. The cast does an excellent job, and although I have no children of my own, I found it to be extremely entertaining! I highly recommend it!

I'm glad that you got this movie. I remember that I asked someone to get this movie and I can't believe that you got this movie. I am so so so happy that you got that movie and I just put a hold on it, so I got it. I have seen all of the American Girl movies, well, except for the new one that you have, but I'll borrow it next time.

I personally kinda liked it, but Molly was rude to Emily, Which i didn't expect, Molly danced when in the book, she was sick and couldn't, and It was sort of sad. I would honestly think to say that, I recommend it, but not enough, that it is worth watching, but i would recommend the Felicity movie, much stronger than this movie.

Pretty good movie though she can act pretty rude to Emily! I know that she thinks she is weird just because she doesn't talk that much and isn't used to where she is, but she doesn't know Emily's feelings! Plus, I bet SHE would be shy if she went to a family that she didn't know to stay with! I would.... It was pretty good though kinda weird about Mrs. Campbell liking that soldier and her making fun of her! :)

The movie parallels the books, but introduces more of the mature aspects of war that the books leave out or only touch upon. Overall a good movie for older kids, but dont expect the exact same "Molly" from the books.
