Critic Reviews of "Kit Kittredge An American Girl"
I.E. WeeklyJuly 04, 2008
It's hard to dislike a tween picture that opens with Eleanor Roosevelt, but if explaining mortgage meltdowns to their tots doesn't sent parents screaming, the performances will.
Entertainment WeeklyJuly 03, 2008
A gently thoughtful, audience-appropriate entertainment that assembles swell actors to play colorful characters who don't shy away from depicting serious hard times.
Washington PostJuly 02, 2008
The tweener girls for whom it is aimed deserve better. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
New York TimesJuly 02, 2008
This classy, heart-on-its-sleeve movie is packed with laudable life lessons and Depression-era trivia.
Seattle TimesJuly 02, 2008
This is a sweet, G-rated story of 1930s girl power, with nary a princess in sight.
San Francisco ChronicleJuly 02, 2008
Kit Kittredge is proof of how far you can get with the right screenwriter -- in this instance one versed in Children's Adventures 101 -- and director.
ReelzChannel.comSeptember 02, 2008
Mostly, Kit Kittredge is exactly what you'd expect -- a treacle-sweet, simplistic story about maintaining a stiff upper lip in the face of adversity, keeping your family together, and not judging a book by its cover.

Emotionally affecting but dramatically wobbly, "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" touchingly illustrates the sting of poverty without overly resorting to childish shenanigans.
Spectrum (St. George, Utah)July 19, 2008
What could have been an oasis of quiet, thought provoking nostalgia turns out to be an utter bore. Yes, it's family friendly but it's also entertainment exterminating.
Aisle SeatJuly 11, 2008
When I have children, this is the kind of movie I hope they will like. It's intelligent, it's meaningful, and it doesn't condescend to kids. In fact, it actually encourages kids to think.

The movie gets by largely on its guileless, upbeat charm, and on those same qualities as found in Abigail Breslin.
