Kit Kittredge: (Flack’s Review)

Posted on | December 28, 2009 | 1 Comment


This movie is about a girl, Kit Kittredge who wants to be a reporter for the Cincinnati Register newspaper. But when the editor decides not to publish her first story she is not happy. Her dad must leave to go to Chicago to find a job. Lots of things happen that are not good. Now people move into her house as boarders (my mommy knows that word not me) because her family does not have a lot of money. Now people are getting kicked and robbed. So Kit, one of the new people who moved in, Stirling, and her friend Ruth must unravel the mystery.

My favorite character is Stirling because I think it is funny when he faints in the club house and after Kit asks Ruth and Stirling if they will be her reporter assistants, he says “Do we get paid?” to Kit and she says “No.” and then he says “Alright.”

My favorite part is when the librarian, the magician and the guy with the monkey try to chase Kit, Ruth and Stirling because I think it is funny when guy with the monkey falls down on the tree roots and can’t catch up with the magician (guy who levitates people) and the librarian (girl who drives a book mobile).

Flack’s Rating: 4.5 out of 5

My rating is PG for romance, huge adult themes, slapstick, and some scenes of action.
Including themes about the Depression and people losing their jobs
