‘Kit Kittredge’ Brings the Cute…
Awwww. What else can you say when confronted with an onslaught of Tinseltown tots all dolled up for Kit Kittredge, the first of many American Girl movies?
It’s a feel-good flick from a feel-good franchise, and stars felt good about showing up with their little ones. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith brought son Trey, from Will’s previous marriage, as well as his Pursuit of Happiness costar Jaden to their sister Willow’s big debut.
Perky-to-a-fault Abigail Breslin was on hand, natch. She plays the titular character, a perky-to-a-fault nine-year-old in the time of the Great Depression who has big dreams of being a journalist and an even bigger attitude of stick-to-itiveness and resiliency.
Also in attendance: Chris O’Donnell with wife Caroline and Lily, Christopher and Charlie, three of his, count ‘em, five kids; Lisa Kudrow and son Julian; Emma Roberts; Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna with Delilah and Amelia.
All seemed happy to have just a little cinematic something for their little girls, who tend to get forgotten in yet another summer of rock-‘em-sock-‘em superheroes, mythical wizards and fat, furry martial artists.
Whet your appetite with the Kit Kittredge trailer…
