    It's not great by any means, but it's a pretty good movie that didn't leave me filled with regret for investing time in it.

    I really wanted to like this movie. I feel terribly cynical trashing it, and that's why I'm giving it a middling 5. Actually, I'm giving it a 5 because there were some superb performances.

    This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.

    Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

    This is a family sitcom that I happened to catch on TV when I was a kid, remembered it being a heartfelt series about girl Punky Brewster who befriends Henry Warnimont, who adopts her.I loved the chemistry and family relationship between Punky and Henry - very heartwarming and touching to watch. It definitely represents the true meaning of family and innocence, all the while bringing in some comic relief as well.Good acting, good episodes, and an overall good series for the most part whose lead actor serves as a good role model for children.Grade A-

    I love Punky Brewster! I grew up with her!! What happened to the Seasons on DVD? I already have seasons 1 & 2. I am waiting on season 3 and the rest of the show on DVD!! Please come out with them soon!! I will buy them just like I have the others. This show brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. I want to be able to pass this on to my children. Now a days, the shows on television for children are not appropriate. They need to bring back the family shows like this one. I don't even see reruns of this anywhere on television. I remember growing up on this show, Full House, Little House On The Prarie, etc. I see reruns of these shows but not Punky! I don't understand why not! Bring Punky back!! I want to see more of her on DVD and on television!

    I watched Punky Brewster from the time it aired on the NBC network to the time it ended. Eventually, the show was brought back in reruns on the Family Channel now called ABC Family. Soleil Moon Frye gave a great performance as Punky I can't think of a better Punky Brewster than her. I've written to the Disney Channel, KSMO WB 62, KCWE 29, and even the Hallmark Channel requesting that this incredible show be brought back on the air. I really enjoyed this show and I really want to see it again. I even listen to the theme song on the internet, I also know it by heart. Other viewers want this show back on the air as well. I also called Columbia House video store because they now have all your favorite sitcoms from the fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties, and nineties where you can buy them. I asked them if they had Punky Brewster but they didn't have it.

    I posted the first comment for Punky Brewster when I was at least 10. Back then I missed the show more than I do now, though it would be cool to see it again. I exaggerated when I called this Soleil Moon Frye's best, because the only thing I've seen her in besides this is an episode of the Wonder Years (though if ever see her in Sabrina reruns, maybe that'll change). Anyway, Punky was a great show, especially for young kids who wanted a positive role model. My favorite episode has to be the "Miss Adorable" one. I watched that tape of it so much it isn't even in good condition anymore. If it comes back, maybe I'll tape it. For now, I have the memories (and the theme song, for that matter) in my head.
