Our Score
Macaulay Culkin may have his name high up on the credits, but luckily he doesn't have enough screen time to spoil this occasionally charming tale. Anna Chlumsky plays a young tomboy who is trying to come to terms with life and the fact that her mortician father (Dan Aykroyd) is starting a relationship with the woman (Jamie Lee Curtis) who makes up the bodies at his funeral parlour. It's one for the less cynical members of the family, although younger viewers may find some of the unhappier moments distressing.


A lonely 11-year-old tomboy feels responsible for her mother's death, but a boy's friendship helps her get through her emotional problems. Meanwhile, when she realises her father is falling in love with his new employee, she sets out to do all she can to end the romance. Drama, starring Anna Chlumsky, Macaulay Culkin, Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis.
