    Much as she did in "Little Miss Sunshine," Breslin imbues Kit with joy. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    This sweetly enjoyable family film stars the endearing Abigail Breslin as Kit. And, refreshingly, it's actually about something -- the Great Depression -- and tackles such serious issues as prejudice, poverty and homelessness. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    It's not only fresh and unassuming, but a film that serves, very nicely, the severely underserved audience of young girls. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    While the film starring Abigail Breslin as a resourceful 10-year-old is faithful to the Kit books, it's pokey where it should be perky. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It's certainly been a while since we've seen a movie this resolutely old-fashioned. But while the script feels a little stiff and moralistic at times, it's hard to fault a film with such an intelligent, good-hearted heroine. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Just about perfect for its target audience, and more than that. It has a great look, engaging performances, real substance and even a few whispers of political ideas, all surrounding the freshness and charm of Abigail Breslin, who was 11 when it was filmed. show more

    One of the 10 best American movies released so far this year, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is the surprisingly satisfying first theatrical film inspired by a long-running series of historically themed dolls. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A thoroughly satisfying and engaging children's picture that never forgets those kids probably didn't get to the theater by themselves. show more

    It's fun, fast-paced, educational entertainment that's fit for the whole family -- American boys included. show more

    Wrote a review but the text did not appear. Sweet film, good acting by all except Joan Cusack. Absolutely the most annoying performance ever. Flaps her arms around like a goose and acts like one. Rest of the cast super and the film quite entertaining.
