Me and Jackie Chan and the Dying Girl
29 April 2018 | by reidandgeneneSee all my reviews

This is a charming little movie for kids. There are plenty of things to criticize, but the movie has heart, and that makes up for a lot of sins. It won the best childish film at our annual film festival (MSPIFF) as judged by the official jury of kids, and I think they judged well.
