An Absolutely Darling Movie...

For little Lu's birthday party I took her (and 3 of her closest friends) to see this ...


I can't even begin to describe what an adorable movie this was!! Nancy is smart, and well-mannered, and still kicks a little booty in the end, when she absolutely had to. But she was very proper about it.

Her clothes, of course, were TDF! I seriously want this trench coat...


Nancy states in the movie that she makes her own clothes from her mom's old patterns. Aww!

But the most important part of the movie to me was the fact that Nancy's an honest, sweet, honorable role model for my little girl. I've read mixed reviews on the movie, and to be frank, the "not so good" reviews are definitely NOT being written by parents of little girls. And those reviewers are missing the point.

Parents who worry about the sex, violence, drug use, profanity, and worrisome behavior that perfuses the rest of the movie's out there for kids these day (anyone else terrified by "Thirteen" a couple years ago?), well, we NEED more movies like Nancy Drew.

There wasn't a person in the theatre with me Friday night who wasn't smiling when they left. And that's saying a lot. We were all entertained, we rooted for Nancy together, there was lots of laughing out loud...it was, in a word, ENJOYABLE.

I'll say it again. We need more movies like Nancy Drew. My baby girl needs more heroines like Nancy Drew. So go!! Spend your movie dollars and drive that box office up!! Let those producers and moneybackers SEE that this is a profitable market. After all, isn't the all mighty dollar who dictates what we see onscreen?

Spread the word!
