We've come up with a few movies to get you in the mood for spring. At least one of these should fit the bill. But we're not just going to give you the
list, we're going to make you guess, of course! See if you can guess the movie based on the synopsis alone:
1. A young, recently-orphaned girl is sent to England after living in India all her life. Once there, she begins to explore her new, seemingly-isolated surroundings -- and its secrets.
Answer: The Secret Garden (1993)
2. A misfit ant, looking for "warriors" to save his colony from greedy grasshoppers, recruits a group of bugs that turn out to be an inept circus troupe.
Answer: A Bug's Life (1998)
3. A high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite what the Principal thinks of that.
Answer: Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
4. Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again. Rated G.
Answer: The Wizard of Oz (1939), of course.
