Goofs

After Amy has fallen into the pond, Meg is seen hanging up her wet clothing. Meg remarks how she couldn't believe Jo walked all the way home in wet bloomers yet it was Amy who fell in and got wet. Only Jo's gloves would have gotten wet when she pulled Amy out. You can tell Meg said the wrong name because of Amy's reaction and Beth's following remark. Amy reacts as if the remark was pertaining to her and Beth respond's to Meg's remark in terms of it having been Amy who got wet. See more »

I have always loved "Little Women" this is a wonderful rendition.
5 September 2002 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

The actors did a wonderful job. The wardrobe, scenery, furniture --- everything seemed authentic. I smiled, laughed and cried!!!!!! I really enjoyed watching this movie. Susan Sarandon was just perfect (as usual)

I usually don't like remakes of any movie, but this one was wonderful!!!
