The film purports to be set in NYC, and its primary setting is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Yet, it is clearly set in southern CA, and the museum, surrounded by palm trees, is not the Met. See more »

See the 1973 version, or, better yet, read the book!
27 June 2001 | by (Alameda, CA) – See all my reviews

I heartily recommend E.L. Konigsberg's book. I also liked the 1973 movie version (also known as "The Hideaways") with Ingrid Bergman. The '73 actors looked and acted much more like the book's characters.

This version kept the interesting concept of kids hiding out in the Metropolitan Museum, but lost most of the wonder and sweetness that made the book the sort of children's classic that adults can enjoy. The characters became annoying, and a lot of interesting subplots were cast aside. Also, for some reason, Claudia wears glasses in this version, and bathes in them, keeps them on in bed, and generally acts like someone who's never truly worn glasses in her life. Just one more roadblock on the trip to suspension of disbelief.

This version completely lost the character of Saxonburg, Mrs. Frankweiler's accountant and the children's grandfather. Instead, they added a lot of cutesy dialog about "Poppa Kincaid" saying that Jamie is older sister Claudia's "good luck charm". It just doesn't capture the complex relationship between the children, and Mrs. Frankweiler becomes more a fairy godmother than an interesting 3-D character.
