Sure, I'm used to being in the minority, so here we go... LOL
The film should be titled: "U.S.S.R. Girl". = O
Of course, there is also EVERY clichéic Politically Correct thing imaginable in this production. It's basically a Follywood "dream come true".
Naturally, the starring role was played as an 11 year 21st Century girl from CA, set in 1934 Cincinnati. (Yeah. Right.) I doubted they would overcome that, but of course, they didn't even try. And in both aspects mentioned above, the film is even worse than the book!
Yes, there is the cutesy story, and again, wholesome principals (a very good thing), but it's insidiously inundating kids with Follywood's view of certain stereotypes they (Leftists) want perpetuated, and filling kid's heads with untruths, brought to us by the biggest hypocrites on the planet. (Note: the young girl playing Kit was paid $2,000,000 for this role; her 2nd in 2008, in which she was paid another $2,000,000.) There is A LOT better stuff for kids out there, by much better people and organizations.

I will say though, that Stanley Tucci is the one saving grace in this movie.
