Not A good movie!
12 August 2002 | by (Texas,U.S.A) – See all my reviews

The movie stinks!! I love the book. All of the books as a matter of fact! But this movie is nothin' like the book! The scenes are all out of order and it looks like it was shot on a home video camera!! If ya like the book don't watch the movie!
