Above average children's adaptation.
23 January 2003 | by mattstengelSee all my reviews

When I was in my elementary years (which was the early to mid 1990's) I had discovered some truly unique books in Judy Blume's "Fudge" series which started with "Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing". For the time in my life, I enjoyed each of these novels about growing up, siblings, and gender wars. Fudge-A-Mania, which is a television film adaptation of the final book in the series, is definitely worth viewing for the younger audiences.

Bob Clark directs a film which is reminiscent of his neo-classic "A Christmas Story". The script for FAM was not terrible, counting it was adapted from a national author's book. The movie itself appealed to the younger audience but without having to resort to cheap, gimmicky or "popular" comedy (ahem...Kangaroo Jack). Darren McGavin is again put into the role of the old-but-wise character and performs admirably. The child actors, namely Jake Richardson and Luke Tarsitano each do a decent job of portraying their respectable characters; Richardson plays the pre-teen male and Tarsitano as the annoying little brother.

So if you are looking for some good, clean, half decent entertainment for your children, you cannot go wrong with Fudge-A-Mania. And for their reading pleasures I recommend any of the titles in Judy Blume's "Fudge" series which include "Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing", "SuperFudge" and "Fudge-a-Mania".
