Is It Any Good?

With the bad dubbing and some weirdness (like kids in potato sacks dancing, pretending to be Turkish for some reason) this is a '70s movie meant for real fans of Pippi Longstocking. If you are, you're in for a kitschy treat with a car that flies when Pippi flaps her arms; dancing on the ceiling with superglued shoes; and travel in hay wagons, atop trains, and by barrel over waterfalls. It's great fun for kids to reenact adventures in their own backyards after movie night. If you're planning a Pippi movie night, though, watch Pippi in the South Seas first. Pippi's pirate adventures will hold more excitement for kids. It's hard to beat pirates, really.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
