Theater Thursday

It's Thursday already?!? That means it's time for another round of Theater Thursday! This week we're taking a look at the 1992 hit, Big Girl's Don't Cry... They Get Even!

13 year old Laura, is fed up with her dysfunctional family. Her parents divorced when she was 8 and both remarried. Currently, Laura is forced to deal with Keith, her mothers new husband, a step sister, 2 step brothers and now a half brother. 
Her father on the other hand has divorced his second wife and his 2nd child to now be with a 19 year old who's pregnant with his twins. After being blamed for an incident she didn't cause Laura decides to run away. She escapes with Josh, her older step brother who she likes but has been banished by Keith. Once she's stowed away and arrives to Josh's cabin in the mountains he calls the family to let them know where Laura has gone. 

With the family trip to Hawaii in danger of being scratched the entire family goes to the mountains to get Laura. Laura however sees them coming and runs away yet again. Now her entire family is forced to sit around together and wait until she's found. 
This movie is really cute and funny. If you've never seen it, I highly suggest it.
