Gilly Hopkins has seen more than her share of foster homes and has outwitted every family she has lived with. In an effort to escape her new foster mother Maime Trotter's endless loving care, Gilly concocts a plan that she believes will bring her mother running to her rescue. But when the ploy blows up in Gilly's face it threatens to ruin the only chance she's ever had to be part of a real family.

Good beginning wonderful ending but lagged in the middle so I fast forward two or three times. Didn't really miss anything as the end made good sense. I do recommend this cause it is a feel good with a bit of anger toward the system messing with kids.

Great movie. It would be wonderful if all foster homes were loving and accepting.

Well, this was fun. It is very much a fantasy because 99.9% of foster parents are nothing like the character here, and the tough girl with the heart of gold is a bit over the top,too. But is was funny and sweet, and very much a feel good movie. It is rare these days to find a movie in which all the characters are likable and the tone and language are appropriate for family viewing (and for old people like me who are fed up with swear words used to hide the fact the writer can't write dialogue).
