An endearing rags-to-riches family comedy of a wandering scam artist and his streetwise, curly-headed sidekick, this guilty pleasure ranks with John Hughes's best films.
It's a situation that seems too good to be true. It is directed by John Hughes. Next scene, Curly dad wants her to hit him with the plank very hard. Again great movie plot but the use of GD is really overused and unneeded to make this a good movie. Well paced, great cast, excellent story line. Great movie!
So glad to have watched it again after so many years.
Jim Belushi was good as well.

It is directed by John Hughes. Remember it well. At the very least, the leads of this cast endear, with Kelly Lynch being actually pretty convincing in her portrayal of a lonely woman whose heart goes warmed by misfortunate, but well-meaning characters, while Jim Belushi and a young Alisan Porter most engage, not just with individual thorough charm, but with a chemistry that is near-delightful in its own charm, with a hint of dramatic effectiveness that sells the more sensitive themes of this film.

There's something lazy about this unoriginal story concept, whose interpretation is about as bland, maybe not to where I'm nearly as aggravated with the final product as others, but certainly to where the final product fails to stand as all that rewarding as the final directorial effort for a legendary filmmaker.
