Supergirl is innocent fun for people that might have seen wit when it came out. It wasn't good but it certainly wasn't awful. children might like it.
In Supergirl's defense, go back and read a bunch of early Silver Age "Supergirl" comics. The movie really isn't all that different in tone from the original Mort Weisinger-era comics, which were indeed aimed at children . . .

It's not like they were adapting Alan Moore or something . . . or even Lee/Kirby!

(Anybody else remember the issue where Supergirl used the Super-Computer at the Fortress of Solitude to find herself the perfect boyfriend--who turned out to be a girl in disguise? That's what the original SUPERGIRL comics were like!)
