Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids will love Pippi's pep and creativity (and will overlook the bad, bad dubbing) as she plans unique fun for her friends and bests a strong man with ease.

While Pippi in the South Seas told of Pippi's high-seas adventures with pirates and crazy flying machines, despite a title of PIPPI GOES ON BOARD, this movie contains only Pippi's hometown antics. Kids may wonder when she will set sail again to navigate storms and take on pirates. So if you rent this one, rent it along with Pippi in the South Seas. Put on some freckles and pig-tails and make it a film festival.
