Product Description

Vada (Anna Chlumsky), an eleven-year-old hypochondriac, spends the summer with her best friend Thomas (Macaulay Culkin). She relies on him when her undertaker father (Dan Aykroyd) starts dating a make-up artist (Jamie Lee Curtis), feeling that her parental relationship is now under threat. However, she soon has even more problems to come to terms with in this coming-of-age story.

From Amazon.co.uk

A doomed Macaulay Culkin becomes the object of affection for a little girl (Anna Chlumsky), estranged from her widowed father (Dan Aykroyd). This somewhat daring premise has various emotional buffers to keep young viewers from going into shock from Culkin's demise, but My Girl is also not shut off from real feelings. And while the story remains safely predictable, at the end of the day it is still a bittersweet experience. Culkin's performance is okay in that somewhat mannered way of his post-Home Alone career, but Anna Chlumsky is unusually sophisticated in her understanding of her character and situation. Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis are perfectly stable as the kids' single parents. This is directed by Howard Zieff (Private Benjamin). --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This family drama is one of the sweetest movies you'll ever see. I'm a big fan of Macaulay Culkin, who always made great movies, and 'My Girl' is certainly no exception.

Fresh from 'Home Alone', Mac appears as Thomas J., best friend to Vada (Anna Chlumsky), a quirky girl who is obsessed with death. Anna's father runs a funeral parlour, her mother is dead, and she has a crush on her English teacher. In an attempt to impress him, she joins a poetry class. Thomas.J. is a loyal friend, and he's seemingly allergic to everything, which tragically leads to his downfall.

'My Girl' is a movie that is guaranteed to touch me every time I see it. It's a beautiful story of friendship and youthful innocence, with plenty of laughs throughout, particularly from Anna Chlumsky, who I'm surprised didn't go onto become more famous after such an eye-catching performance. If you don't have a tear in your eye by the end of it all - you have no heart.

This has been my favourite film since it came out. When i was younger i remember watching it so many times i could recite the whole thing on cue. Its still the only film that can make me sob and now i even know what to expect but still cant control it.

I watched it again a few weeks ago and now im older it takes on a whole different meaning. Before i liked it cos it had kids my own age and i cried because her friend died. It ws only when i got older i realised what else she was going through and it made me cry for different reasons.

I love this film and no film will ever come close to it. I am surprised the giril who played Vada didnt go on to be a big actress beacause in this she makes the film.

Whether your young or old, male or female this film is for you

Amazing film, worth watching, but is guaranteed to make you sob. The sequel is not as good, but this is definately worth a watch.

This is my favourite film in the whole world. I have watched it that many times I just about know it word for word and I now need to buy another copy. I like Vada hate death and could never look at a coffin so at the end oh did I cry and still cry every time I watch it. Vada is a lovely kid and Im sure a lot of people can see a lot of themselves in her when they were young with all she goes through, a crush on a teacher a new mum and a death. Its a must buy

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A. RHODES on 8 May 2011
Format: DVD
Although I was born in 1992 a year after the film was made, I only watched it for the first time recently. I think that this was probably a good thing as it allowed me to understand it better. The story follows Vada Sultenfuss an 11 year old tomboy. She lives in a funeral parlour which makes death a big part of her life. Her view and feelings on this difficult subject changes as the film goes on and as we see her grow up over the summer of 1972. I will not give away anymore of the story but I challenge it to even move the hardest of hearts. It had me blubbering, but I always become emotionally involved in films. I would definately reccomend it to anyone but maybe not small children as they may find it distressing.
The acting is suberb from favourites Jamie Lee Curtis, Dan Akroyd and Macaulay Culkin. By far the strongst performance is from new young actress Anna Chlumsky as Vada. A five star film.

This has to be one of the best family movies of the early 1990's when king of the child actors, Macaulay Culkin was at the height of his reign, the plot is just sheer genius and keeps right on track throughout the movie, a girl struggling to come to terms with a hard to understand adult world and all the mixed feelings that are raging around inside her, brought up in a funeral home and refusing point blank to even acknowledge death as a major issue in growing up, she seeks solace in Thomas J Sennet a local sort of a loner kid who is her soulmate, they share everything together even first kisses and as well as sharing in her angst he also forces her to face up to the cruel and wicked reality of death.
Just sheer brilliant

I have been mocked for my love of this film by friends, in particular those who hold such films that are mischievously clever in their twisting plots or thunderously dynamic by hurtling the biggest names towards your eyes using multi-million dollar effects.
My Girl's cast is hardly blockbuster-like, the plot is fairly predictable and the effects are not machine driven, rather the target is more endocrine than , having a much more humane delivery. The devotion of the two children to each other is nothing short of touching, and the emotion that is exchanged between the two seeps with innocence and quiet confusion that can only be found in the hearts of little people.
This is not, however, a rollercoaster of angst, exhilaration and demise. The film manages to stay within the realms of 'nice' and remains a heartwarming experience. Good stuff.
