John Hughes, who wrote, directed and produced this family comedy, turns out about three movies a year. At his best, he produced The Breakfast Club and at his worst, Career Opportunities. This film falls somewhere in between.

Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi) is a street person who, after a one night stand, is left to care for a little girl (Alisan Porter). Together they survive by conning. One of their schemes has Curly Sue hitting Dancer in the head with a board behind the car of a rich lawyer, played by Kelly Lynch. Thinking she's responsible for his injuries, she takes them home for dinner and soon finds them both irresistible.

Sometimes Porter is a little too precocious for words, but Belushi is such a likable actor, the two performances even things out. Curly Sue is a pleasant little comedy for the whole family.
