I enjoyed the film and hold it to be very "Twainesque."
16 July 2000 | by (Asheville, NC) – See all my reviews

Having read the book and seen this movie, I believe Twain would have approved. The depictions of Roxy, Tom, and Chambers are very accurate. On the other hand, I do believe more time should have been devoted to Twain's sarcastic view of society, especially Rowena. The clever invocation of Pudd'nhead Wilson's calendar quips was grand! I did enjoy the movie, and would recommend it to viewers of all ages.
