Jason goes to B&B and sees 'Wild Chicks'

I'm posting this mobile, and space is limited on text messages. Hence a series of small posts instead of one post about 10 movies.

Anyway, I just saw "Wild Chicks", a cute pre-teen gang comedy. The titular Wild Chicks are a girl gang led by Sprat. Most of their time is spent scheming revenge against their rival boy gang, the pygmies. Meanwhile everyone in both gangs is dealing with his or her own problems--ranging from pimples to an abusive father. But the huge problem that drives the story is Sprat's grandmother. She's going to slaughter the chickens that Sprat has spent so much time with, so she hatches a plan (no pun intended) to steal them away. Of course, wacky hijinx ensue. It's a cute, fun story with interesting and well developed characters. And the child actors were very good (of course, maybe I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. Their line delivery seemed perfect in the subtitles).
