It also doesn't hurt, of course, that she seems to have a dash of Sabrina the Teenage Witch about...

More sticky sweet, ie grating, adventures with Pippi. Kids might enjoy it still.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that just like the classic book Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren, 11-year-old Pippi lives without parents: her mother is dead (Pippi talks to her in the clouds a couple times), and her father is lost at sea after they're separated in a storm at the beginning of the movie. Adventure -- and danger -- seem to follow Pippi, who rescues kids and her pet monkey trapped in a burning building and convinces two kids to run away from home, and nearly gets them sent over a waterfall in barrels. Pippi is an endearing character because of her free spiritedness and creative approach to life, but her disregard for manners and the authority of adults may also grate on parents.
