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.

I have several memories associated with My Girl. The most notable one is the "seafood/see food" segment showing Anna Chlumksy opening her mouth during an outside dinner party and revealing a mouthful of chewed food to her father's girlfriend, haha. Back in 1991/92 I was in 4th grade, and ALL my classmates were imitating this same exact segment by coming up to other students and asking "Do you like seafood?" Pretty soon the joke got worn out when it was realized nobody was falling for it anymore, so we stopped. The other memorable scene is the bumper cars. What seems like an innocent little game between Anna's character and her dad's new girlfriend quickly turns serious when the woman realizes Anna is focusing on bumping into only HER car. Why? Because Anna didn't like the fact her father was dating another woman after the death of her mom.

Of course the beehive segment with Macaulay Culkin is the saddest moment in the entire movie. It's almost hard to believe -given the pleasant tone up to this point- that a moment so sad actually occurs. The soundtrack is incredible. If you love the 60's and early 70's music scene, you will absolutely love the selections being played here. Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly & the Family Stone and of course the Temptations (yeah YOU know which song I'm referring to!) are only a small sample of the songs you'll hear.

Despite Macaulay Culkin's enormous success in 1990 with Home Alone, My Girl is mainly all about Anna Chlumksy's family and friend issues (especially the relationship with her father played by Dan Aykroyd). We learn about what happened to the mother and why she's not around. Back in 1991 when this movie was first released, I used to compare the absence of a mother to the hit TV show Full House.
