This is a great remake of the classic. The characters are brilliant and they play their roles flawlessly. It obviously has a more modern feel than the original with the movie set in modern day New York with department stores, lawyers, and the modern conveniences of life today. John Hughes did a really great job transferring the original idea of the movie into the modern day. It has a really good message that encourages everyone everywhere to go for what you believe in and to never give up. Unfortunately, in the language category there is one word which prevents us from awarding the Dove Seal for all ages; instead, the Seal is awarded at a 12+ level.
