Curly Sue

About the Movie

Curly Sue is a touching mixture of comedy and drama — predictable but enjoyable. This poignant film is about the adventures of a street-smart little girl, Curly Sue (Alison Porter) and her guardian, Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi), a part-time con man with a heart of gold. As they stay one step ahead of the authorities, the pair charms an icy, corporate attorney (Kelly Lynch). Will they become a family or will well-meaning but misinformed social services advocates break them up?
