A very broad annoying and overemotional little drama...
December 6, 2004
These character live in an unblemished neighborhood, where everyone has bite-sized problems that can easily be resolved with a few kind words, a hug, and some tears.

Every plot development is telegraphed from a mile away, and every character acts in the most obvious manner possible.

Begins in the vein of a Joe Dante suburban satire but ends like a nightmare of Chris Columbus poppycock.

At least it's a viable alternative to the usually predominate brainless super-charged kids fare that's thrown on the big screen. And for that, Treu's cinematic "little secret" is worth telling out loud.

Few parents [the kind likely to have made Little Secrets and to whom it seems primarily aimed] will find anything objectionable in this sanitized after-school special-esque of a film, lately that's progress.

The kids in this syrupy family picture are spunky tykes and the adults are dolts, but Wood is worth watching because she's so clearly ready to play nobody's girl but her own.

There are a lot of movies out there made for fourteen-year-old boys, a ton of movies made for six-year-old kids, this movie is made for ten-year-old girls and for what it is, I really like it.

This is simply good filmmaking, and deserving of your attention.

What you end up with are a bunch of kids acting not like kids, but how adults who've lost all sense of what it was like to be a kid think kids behave.
August 23, 2002
The movie's chipper charms, and its steadfast determination to present an alternative to overly merchandised multiplex fare (there's nary a pop song or product placement here), ultimately win out.

A touching film that will make audiences smile and cry at young characters who are learning about love and confession.

It somewhat breaks the tone when Emily admits, 'Mom is very anal,' but then Emily is anal, and so -- nicely -- is the movie.

It's a beguiling exploration of friendship, trust, truth, insecurity and, yes, secrets.

Stick with it and you may find some unexpected pleasures here, especially performances by two adolescent stars who elevate the film above some often-shaky writing.

Good intentions don't necessarily make for compelling storytelling.
August 23, 2002
It's to the credit of its young, talented cast that Little Secrets overcomes what could have been a terminal case of the 'cutes.'

It's safe and heart-warming enough that the 15-and-younger set should love it while their parents won't be bored.
