Don't Judge my Intelligence by the Amount of Stars I Gave this Horrid Film., 10 March 2005
Author: dysfunctionjunction from South Dakota, United States

Okay. This is probably one of my favorite books of all time. I can't even begin to explain how they screw this up in the movie. I sat down, EXCITED and watched this film, and got up DEPRESSED and wanting to cry. It wasn't as if I was depressed by the sad content of the film, but the quality made me physically ill. Don't waste your time on it. The only reason why I gave it that one star is because the book deserves ten. The actors in this movie couldn't work out of a paper bag. I kept screaming "Where's Keanu!?" and "Why! Why!" I wish they wouldn't of made "Beans..." into a film, because this book is the one book I wanted to turn into a movie. And I think that with my minimal movie making skills, mine would look like "Citizen Kane" compared to this elementary garbage.
