They should have made this sooner!
7 August 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was a good one to share with kids- no fears of bad language- sex -etc as in todays movies. The one thing I truly wish is that they would have made this version 10 years sooner when Ron Howard and Donny Most were the right ages to play Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer. Even with "babyish" faces they look at least 20 and not the 14 or 15 that they should have been. Ron was about the perfect guy to play the part when he was the right age. I am thinking about the time The Andy Griffith Show ended would have been the right time to do it. The fight scene with Pap made this even more clear. Granted a boy in that era might not have wanted to fight with his father but Ron was actually as big or bigger than his dad. Made the scene too unbelievable. And Donny was even bigger. I would have absolutely loved it had it been made with the same characters earlier. That said I give it an 8 - and earlier version would have gotten a 10.
