A cute one-horse trick of a film that has a fair amount of amusing pep and fizz before it's limited momentum inevitably fades mid-way.
Cute musical homage to classic noir/gangster flicks starring infants. the young talented Jodie Foster is among them. catchy tunes.
Cute idea, that works but becomes repetitive rathe fast. It would be better suited for a long short. Saved but the surreal scenes such as the pedal car chase and the salvation army(?) lunch scene which are very strong deiveries.
A "cute" Gangster movie!
"So this is show business?"
