Part of A Film A Day
Now this is a film I've been meaning to see since I got into watching films, but never really got around to. I had heard remarks along the lines of "this is the cutest film ever." And you know what? "My Girl" is actually extremely emotionally driven, and it presents a rather lighthearted view into the coming-of-age of this girl. Is it a technically genius film? Not even close! But it's entertaining enough, and emotional enough for this film to be a success.
Cannot believe they made us watch this, Shiloh, and Where the Red Fern grows in fifth grade. The most emotionally confused year of my life for good reasons.
That funeral scene... fuck you.
RIP Thomas J

I was actually torn between 4 and 4.5 stars. Well, my sister rates it 4.5, and I'm sure she loves it more than I do, so 4 stars it is!
I think there kind of were three phases for me with this movie.
1. I first saw it at age 12 or maybe 13 I think, I liked it, and I've seen it more often than I can count back at that time I think
2. Then, a few years later, there might have been a phase where I was too "cool" for it. I'm not completely sure of this, but I think there was.
3. Then again…
Estória singela, mas extremamente bonita.
NO ONE WARNED ME IT WOULD BE SAD YOU GUYS
Attempting to show how young people respond to love and loss, My Girl never quite gets the children's story and nostalgias quite right. It does, however, capture childhood innocence and is anchored by fine performances from Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis.
When he begins a relationship with a new woman, she lashes out, but her friend Thomas Sennett is always there to help, as well as an English teacher she's trying to impress by joining a summer writing course. This movie started sweet and harmless but then the movie switches gears to wards the end which the ending is upsetting.
