David Paterson, who was the real-life inspiration for the character of Jess Aarons, the son of Katherine Paterson (author of the original book), and producer and screenwriter for the remake Bridge to Terabithia (2007), referred to this version as being "like the crazy cousin that nobody talks about" and went on to say that "no one on our side was either involved with it or happy with the final product".

Our whole class loved the book (We stayed in at recess to finish it.) but the movie was not as good!
The acting wasn't very good either. The movie was unable to capture the power of the book. (My teacher usually cries when reading it.)Instead, it ended up looking a bit corny. I didn't like The Outsiders movie either! (They were both a bit similar.) I guess we are just used to seeing a superb first-rate book-movie, instead of another movie that looks like it was home-made.
I loved the book. Read it.
