I couldn't find this movie anywhere. I had decided to dress up as Pippi for Halloween, and my children didn't know who I was talking about. When it arrived, I was so excited to share it w/ my children. They loved it. My oldest was singing the songs for days. I am so glad that something that I loved so much as a child is now loved by my children.

The setting of Pippi Longstocking's home is supposed to be Sweden, in this movie it's relocated to America. That was perhaps unfaithful to the books- but this version of Pippi manages to be sweet and endearing in spite of this.
I've read a lot of negative reviews of this movie- I'm not exactly sure how many people don't like this movie, but I happen to think it sweet and charming for people of all ages.
The performances by the actors in this manage to recreate magic in a different setting. Tami Erin gives a positively charming performance as a little girl- she manages to give Pippi the trademark innocence, oddness, and yet she manages to give Pippi a sort of beginning of wisdom as well. Tami conveys the hurt and pain as Pippi is aquainted with the realities of kids who are unloved, her friend Annika's father's dislike of her, and the gradual evaporation of the magic of her childhood. She manages to make Pippi human and accesible while still making her an enduring, endearing figure. Some people refer to her as ''spoiled brat'', but I think her reaction toward these adults was more her shock that her cheer could not please them. The adventures between her and Tommy and Annika were sweetly shown, and it can end in Pippi's understanding of what she's done.
I have seen the other versions of Pippi and Inger Neillson portrays Pippi as a strange, detached, though not charmless character- but she is in no way human or accessible.
The songs are cute too- they manage to show Pippi's enduring innocence, and her good-hearted spirit.
I would recommend this movie to people of all ages ready to see a new version of the sweet, charming Pippi- Tami Erin was a charming young actress, I don't know why she didn't persue acting after this.

This is rather funny and strange... I'm an 18 year old Senior now, and I can still remember seeing this movie, as a 9 year old kid lounging on my couch. The scary part is that all my friends remember this movie too. I could be bored in calculus, and start hummin' "Pippi Longstockings is comin' into your world," and within 10 seconds at least 10 other kids are singin along. None of us understand how or why we remember it, (maybe it had to do with the fact that every guy had a crush on Pippi when he was about 10. Her and Punky Brewster) Anyway, I just wanted to write this to say it could definately be a great thing for your kid, it made an impact on about 1/5 of my high school graduating class. (by the way, if anyone knows how to reach, or knows how or find out what happened to Tami Erin,[she was so cool]send me an E-mail pleeeze) ---thanks

I'll address the one person (I'm sure that'll change) that gave this movie one star. Yes, it is true that this movie does not follow the books. In fact, they're taking artistic license all over the place, but that doesn't detract from the experience. The reason I read the books in the first place was because of this movie. Anyway, on to the real review. It's very light fare. A children's film. I have memories of watching it when I was younger and I enjoyed it. I still do. So, if you're looking for something you can watch with the kids, of if you're a big kid (like me), get this film. And unlike most "kids" movies you see today there is no bathroom humor. Highly recommended.

Just as I remember as a kid. I introduced my daughter to this movie. She watched it 3 times a day for over a week. After awhile we ate, slept Pippi. She loves all the same parts I did as a kid. The clarity of the DVD is great for a movie over 20 years old. WE sing all the songs and even tried cleaning like Pippi. I'm very happy I added this to my movie collection.
This movie was easy to find. And it was at a reasonable price. I am lucky that great movies like this were converted to DVD. Amazon makes it very accessible to get movie favorites.

I grew up watching this movie and it was a joy to introduce it to my 5 year old. We watched it together and sing the theme song all the time. This is a great, silly, wholesome movie to watch with young children. Pipi is a wonderful role model - she is brave and believes she can do anything if she tries - she isn't a girly-girl since she's the daughter of a pirate, but she can play dress up and go to town or "runaway" from home to look for treasure. Pipi is a beloved character in our home now, just as she was in mine growing up.

Watched this movie when I was younger and was glad to find it on Amazon. It arrived in great condition, took a couple of days if not a week or so, but not anything too long. I enjoyed watching it again and seeing something I watched as a child to view it in adult perspective- I'm 27 now. I enjoyed it and the songs. I'm sure kids would enjoy it. But old enough to have an imagination but to know its not real but enjoy it. Probably age 8-12. But that's just my opinion. Great enjoyable movie and great price.
