Based on the Ludwig Bemelmans children's books

Newcomer Hatty Jones makes a sunny, insouciant Madeline in this adaptation of Ludwig Bemelmans's classic picture books. Still, the patchwork plot has a harried, episodic feel and lacks the appropriate European flair. In all, von Scherler Mayer may have found her girl in Jones, but the film's clunky structure is one fix even our courageous heroine can't undo.
