"It Doesn't Always Have to Be Six-guns, Boobs, and Explosions"

That was my comment, referring to my usual movie-watching habits, after we watched LITTLE MANHATTAN, a sweet, occasionally funny film about the budding romance between a couple of fifth-graders who live in New York City. This movie takes place in what I think of as sitcom Manhattan, where everything is incredibly clean and safe and charming. It's a pretty good film, although, lowbrow that I am, I wouldn't want a steady diet of movies like it, either. But that takes me back to my original comments about six-guns, etc. On the other hand, why the hell not?

This reminds me of that movie Diane Lane and Olivier were in in the seventies. Thanks for reminding me.

Would that be A LITTLE ROMANCE? I don't think I've seen that one. The earliest Diane Lane film I remember seeing is STREETS OF FIRE, from the Eighties.

We saw this one a couple of years ago. Liked it a lot.

Yes, A LITTLE ROMANCE. She was about fourteen in this one.
