Little girl was incredible, not a polished movie...looked like amateur student movie, left me scratching my head as to what was the message.

It tried to do far too much. The plot covered more than it reasonably could, and left you feeling as though it was unexplained at the end. Metaphors layered upon metaphors piled up, and the movie simply tried to be too much.

\"Hushpuppy\" was terrific. I \"get\" the story and have known people like this, have seen suffering and lived through two of the worst recent hurricanes. With all of the symbolisms and messages taken into consideration, I still thought it was one of the worst movies I have ever watched all the way through; a wasted, very looooong 91 minutes.
