I think this movie set the record for the world's longest title ever... in the world!

By far this is one of my favorite movies of all time. We had this movie on VHS when I was growing up and I watched it so many times the picture was all grainy and not great to watch anymore. Luckily I found it in one of cheap bins on DVD, telling you how many other people think this is a great movie. :) I think the idea that a young girl could help run a fashion company is what made me fall in love with this movie. See this one and let me know what you think.

An interesting take on the No-parents-in-site-type family film. Christina Applegate holds up pretty well, although apparently it's easier to fake a resume than I thought. Good - not great - better than a lot of recent family films.
