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 have wanted to watch this movie for years. Probably since childhood. I don't know why but I did. It probably had a 12 rating or something.
So obviously waiting to watch it until I was 28 is long enough with how high my expectations was.
It was decent though and quite enjoyable even now. It had happy parts, funny parts but most of all sad parts.
Probably the cutest coming of age story ever.
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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I got to say that this movie "My Girl" is emotional, fresh, heartbreaking, and the even some laughs in this movie. The performances in this movie are incredible. The directing by Howard Zieff is well done! The screenplay is brilliant. And the score in this movie has a great sweet touch of goodness that works really well in the movie. "I'm raving, "My Girl" is a movie that is magnificent in an sense of the word!"
Emotional and enjoyable, but fails to commit fully to its darker themes, creating a messy experience as a result.
Love the film, great acting, and sort of really sad too!
This movie screws with my feels so hard. I always think I can handle it and then BOOM, I'm in fetal position at some corner of my room overthinking my life YET AGAIN.
