Editorial Reviews

A coming-of-age comedy starring Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Lee Curtis, Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone) and newcomer Anna Chlumsky, MY GIRL is an irresistible story of first love and loss. Chlumsky makes an extraordinary acting debut as Vada Sultenfuss, a precocious 11-year-old tomboy obsessed with death. Dan Aykroyd is her widowed father, the town mortician, and Jamie Lee Curtis is the sexy cosmetician he employs. Macaulay Culkin, in another endearing performance, is Thomas J., the boy next door who idolizes Vada. Their summer adventures from first kiss to last farewell which introduce Vada to the worldof adolescence. The perfect film for parents to share with their children, MY GIRL is a motion picture to cherish.

I love MY GIRL. It's about an 11-year-old tomboy named Vada, who is growing up in the 70s. She never met her mother because her mother died when she was born. Vada lives with her widowed father who owns a funeral parlor and the funeral parlor happens to be Vada's home, as well. Vada is obsessed with death because she sees dead people coming into her home every day. Her best friend is a boy named Tommy J. (Macaulay Culkin) who is allergic to just about anything you can think of. Vada is also in love with her school teacher. When Vada's father hires a cosmatologist to put makeup on the dead people (and ends up falling in love with her), Vada soon starts to learn the true meaning of life. This flick also stars Dan Aykroyd as Vada's father, Jamie Lee Curtis as Shelly, the woman Vada's father falls in love with, and newcomer Anna Chlumsky as Vada. This is a great coming-of-age story that is very moving and at the same time, enjoyable and entertaining. With an all-star cast and serpurb acting, MY GIRL is a great movie to watch anytime! I also recommend the sequel, MY GIRL 2, which is just as good. If not, better!

I remember when "My Girl" came out in cinemas. I was in third grade, I was at a new school, and it was the start of a new term. First thing we had to do is get into partners and tell the other person what you'd done over the holidays. I still hadn't made any proper friends yet, so no one really wanted to be my partner. I told the teacher, and he told off the class for not being very friendly. That was embarrassing, but it got me a partner. And what had I done over the holidays? I'd gone and seen "My Girl", so I talked about that...

The girl of the film's title is an eleven year old named Vada (Anna Chlumsky), and she's a little strange. Still, that's understandable given the company she's grown up with. Her all too busy father (Dan Aykroyd) runs a funeral parlour in their home, her mother is dead, her grandmother is senile, her best friend Thomas J. (Macaulay Culkin) is allergic to everything, and the other girls in town tease her about her friendship with him. Is it any wonder that Vada is confused about death and love? It is the summer of 1972, a summer where Vada will learn a little, grow up a little, laugh a little, cry a little, sing a little. It'll be a summer she never forgets.

This film looks a little older than the early 1990s, and I think that's a little bit deliberate. Might of been a filter, might have been the type of film they used, I don't know. Everything looks a little dusty and old, like a faded photograph at times. It really works well against the scenery, particularly the lake and the trees, rather idyllic. The cast plays nicely against the backdrop, particularly the young actors Macaulay Culkin and Anna Chlumsky. It's a shame Anna hasn't been in anything lately. I wonder what she's doing these days?

I was born in 1991, so I didn't get to see it for a little while. My older sister used to watch it all the time, so I watched it with her. I loved the movie and wanted to watch it over and over. I think I was about 2, but I didn't understand most of the movie, I just loved it. I hadn't seen the movie for years and I still remembered the scene with Thomas J in his casket from when I was 2. Finally, I found the movie. I learned that it was called My Girl. I was reunited with my favorite childhood movie, which is still my favorite now. One of the best lines from this movie is: Weeping willow with your tears running down/why do you always weep and frown?/ Is it because he left you one day?/ Is it because he could not stay?/ He found shelter in your shade./ You thought his laughter would never fade./ On your branches, he would swing./ Do you long for the happiness that day would bring?/ Weeping willow, stop your tears/for there is something to calm your fears./ If you think death has ripped you forever apart./ I know he'll always be in your heart.

That is the poem that Vada wrote and read to the class at the end of the movie. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.

Whenever I think of this movie, I think of the death of the Thomas character and nothing else, but there's really much more to the movie than that. This could have been a very deep and moving film even if the whole bee-stinging incident was completely left out.

Okay, the movie starts out with a glimpse of the Sultenfuss family in their funeral home. And if I misspell any names they'll just have to remained misspelled, since I don't have the energy to look all this stuff up. Let me comment on something else, too. I watched this movie multiple times as a kid, and I still freaking forgot that the main character lived in a funeral home. That is a major, MAJOR part of the movie. How could I forget it? Amazing.

Well anyway, a woman shows up at the door of the funeral home asking for the make-up artist job. It seems that the owner of the home was smart enough to leave any reference to "deceased" out of the job description title in the newspaper. But the woman is a good sport and takes the job anyway, and since she lives in a motorhome she's there practially all the time, so she becomes like one of the family.

Well, while all this is going on, we follow the daughter of the funeral home owner, Veda, to see what a day in her life is like. It seems she constantly goes to a doctor and complains about how sick she is. We also find out she has a crush on her teacher, and because of him she's inspired to be a writer. So much that she takes a college level writing class over the summer. Pretty impressive for an [..], or however old she is.

She never hangs around with other girls, and spends all her time hanging around with her best friend Thomas instead. And although they do everything together, I still felt I didn't know very much at all about Thomas.
