Didn't anyone who made this movie read the book???
8 August 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie was so badly put together that I don't even want to spend time explaining it. Suffice it to say that Olive Ann Burns would roll over in her grave if she knew the way her fabulous book had been butchered. So many pivotal things from the book were altered or missing that I'm convinced that no one who worked on this movie consulted the book. Too bad, because the actors are talented people. If you haven't read the book, then definitely miss this movie. If you have read the book--miss it too. Of course, you can always watch it just to see what Love Simpson's hats really looked like. The choice is yours.
