Gail Boggs in Curly Sue

Curly Sue

1991 PG

This John Hughes film features the unlikeliest of pairings between street-smart youngster Curly Sue (Alisan Porter) and her guardian, Bill Dancer (Jim Belushi), a sometime con man with the proverbial heart of gold. Managing to stay a step ahead of authorities, the pair even charms an icy corporate attorney (Kelly Lynch). But before the threesome can be a family, they must contend with well-meaning but misinformed advocates from social services.
