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?

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A 5 STAR EMOTIONAL CHOICE, AND STILL AN OUTSTANDING 4 OR 4 1/2 STAR PRODUCTION (1991 release)

4K REMASTER ON BLU-RAY-- BRIEF NOTES INCLUDED

Often some of the best stories are those that make us both laugh and cry together. This coming of age tale of an 11 year old girl set in 1972 has great emotional depth for a movie often billed as a comedy. It is more a drama with great humor and pathos. To call it a dramady would be an injustice. It didn't win many acting awards, but that is not the same thing as saying the performances were not great, as they were in this case. The clichés of growing up are all checked off and it can be a little schmaltzy. It is supposed to be funny after all, and it's a kid's life. It touches on moments that many or most people will find familiar... childhood crushes on a teacher, best friends, first childish kiss, awkwardness, puberty, running away (to the back yard), and ultimately love and life's loss.

THE STORY (no spoilers): Vada Sultenfuss is the precocious, and somewhat hypochondriac, 11 year old girl who occasionally thinks she has a problem with her prostate! She may not understand everything about the world or how her body works, but she is sharply intelligent and witty. Rather than hanging out with the girls clique, she chooses to be around Thomas, the weird kid others don't seem to like as much. Her mother died in childbirth and her father is a mortician. These strange factors in her life make it difficult for her to come to terms with death. She also feels responsible for causing her mother's death (as mentioned, she died while giving birth to Vada).

This is one of the few movies I feel passionate about. It certainly didn't get the publicity it deserved, and it has been forgotten. Compare this movie to any that's in theaters right now, and there's no competition.
I can remember being a little girl, sleeping over at my best friend's house, and watching this movie. I always thought of it as "our" movie. She moved away, and I began to forget about it. Then, about two years ago, I saw it at the video store and decided to rent it, to see what kind of movie entertained me as a child.
I was blown away. Because of its PG rating, I expected myself to laugh and blush at what silly things I had liked. I was in tears at the end of the movie, blown away by Chlumskey's performance. The story is sad, yes, but it's not depressing. It leaves you with a feeling of new hope. If Vada can get through it, then obviously you can get through any petty problem you're having.
If you haven't seen this movie, and you don't plan on it because, well, you've never heard of it, I beg you to reconsider. This story has touched my heart, and those of my many family and friends who I *ahem* forced to watch this movie.
