Product Description

BILL DANCER AND HIS YOUNG COMPANION CURLY SUE ARE THE CLASSIC HOMELESS FOLKS WITH HEARTS OF GOLD. THEIR SCAMS ARE AIMED NOT ATTURNING A PROFIT, BUT AT GETTING ENOUGH TO EAT.

Amazon.com

An endearing rags-to-riches family comedy of a wandering scam artist and his streetwise, curly-headed sidekick, this guilty pleasure ranks with John Hughes's best films. Curly Sue is the story of the street-hardened yet tender Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi) and orphaned accomplice Curly Sue (Alisan Porter). Curly Sue and Bill scam Grey Ellison (Kelly Lynch), an unsuspecting power attorney, out of a hot meal and a penthouse bed. Grey warms to the adorable Sue and the diamond-in-the-rough Bill and cools to her ruthless profession as the trio begins to feel more like a family. John Getz plays Walker McCormick, Grey's stuffy, affected boyfriend who tries his best to force the vagabonds on to the next train out of Chicago. Belushi is well cast for this role, blending grit and heart nicely, but it's the charming performance of Porter that steals most scenes. Imagine a modern Annie through the witty eye of hit filmmaker Hughes and you have Curly Sue. --Sarah Chace

Format: DVD
"Curly Sue" has the kind of premise that, usually, end up being only partially realized in movies. They end up good, but with a feeling that they could have been a lot better. In "Curly Sue", the title little girl and her father are homeless people who get by through pulling low-scale little scams - when the dad pretends to, say, be hit by a very expensive-looking car and mildly hurt, the two of them can often end up receiving a sympathy meal at a nice restaurant and perhaps even a place to stay for the night. (It sounds depressing, but it isn't - it skirts the path of being too downcast for a family movie without trivializing the issues it's depicting) After one incident, the woman Curly's dad Bill pretends to be injured by ends up taking them into her home; and despite her being engaged (to an approriately unlikable boor), the woman (named Grey) and Bill begin to have feelings for one another, even as Grey finds herself becoming quickly attached to Curly Sue.

At your local video store, you'll most likely find this one in the Family Movie section, where it'll easily be amongst the cream of the crop in those aisles. But it's also an uproarious comedy that outshines ninety per cent of the titles in the comedy section, and more genuinely moving and dramatic than most movies on the Drama shelves. "Curly Sue" hits every note it plays to perfection, has smashing performances (including James Belushi in his best role as Bill, Kelly Lynch as Grey, and Allison Porter unforgettable as the dynamic pint-sized fireball of a title character), and doesn't at all end up in the class of movies that are "good, but really should have been better" - it's the opposite, going well above even the high end of the potential one would think it has. An alltime winner.

This a great movie. I saw it when it first came out in 1991 and have liked it ever since. It has a bittersweet storyline about a little girl, and her adoptive father who start out by trying to con a single, rich divorce lawyer out of funds, and end up building a family relationship with her. They teach her what it means to have a family and that there are things beyond money and work. She in turn shows them what having a home can really be like. The story is a timeless mix of comedy and drama. Sad and dark and times, and happy at others, it tells a realistic story of what it might be like to be homeless and parentless. Recommended for adults and kids 9 and up.

"When somebody gives you something to remember them by it means they are going to take off. If they are going to stick around you don't have to have anything to remember them by because they will be there." - Curly Sue

Curly Sue is one of those goose bumps, feel-good, heartwarming movies. While it has its moments of comedy, it is not one of those rolling on the floor laughing out loud movies. It's about a homeless man (John Belushi) who has taken care of this orphan girl, Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) since her birth on meager means, that is until they cross the path of an attorney (Kelly Lynch) who dares to care for this little girl and Bill (John Belushi). It's an incredible story full of compassion that is sure to warm your heart during the holidays or anytime of the year. Full of warmth, honesty and a kick of humor you are sure to fall in love with Curly Sue. This movie is a definite see for any movie lover.

Beautifully written story . The cutest little actress that played Curly Sue. James Belushi played his character very well. This is one of my favorite movies that can make you laugh and cry but still enjoy tremendously. A definite collectible time treasure .I got the vhs way back but the dvd is really expensive. I was glad that Amazon had this movie available to watch. My family liked this movie as much as "The Maid" with Michael sheen, which is in the same category of a great family collectible.

Very good movie. I rented it because the girl who played Curly Sue is currently on The Voice. She did sing twice in this movie. In one scene, she sang along to the National Anthem in front of the TV at the end of the day, just before they went off the air. I remember when they used to actually did that. Now, no channel goes off the error. They stopped that long before Curly Sue came out. She had evidently sang the National Anthem at some event(s), so they worked that in. She was a bit pitchy, but good for her age. She sang a few bars of another song in a different scene, and was on pitch when she sang that son.

I absolutely fell in love with this movie. I had never heard of it. Made in 1991 so 25 years ago. I thought this little orphan girl to be cuter than Shirley Temple, not as pretty though. In fact the cutest child I had ever seen in a movie. I recommended it to everyone I knew and a few days later I got an email from one of them that the girl who played Curly Sue was going to be on The Voice. And she was great on it singing Blue Bayou this past Monday. Jim Belushi was good as well.

Just a great movie, Alisan Porter was such a great young actress and so cute as Curly Sue, Kelly Lynch was great and so beautiful, and James Belushi is great in almost everything he does. Really liked the story you will laugh and cry during this movie and be very satisfied with the happy ending.
