There are movies that you have seen more than 10 times and if it crosses your path, you would surely see it again because they marked a generation but also the career of certain actors. Little Big friends was a cute comedy story in which a young adult woman played by Brittany Murphy, befriends a girl Dakota Fanningand together they embark on a journey of adventure, learning and maturity that was very well received by audiences and critics, and is among the most remembered films.
