Someone should make a movie of this worthy of the writer1

Ok well I was overjoyed to find out that someone cared enough about this book to make a movie out of it. But when I watched this I was very disappointed. It was way too short. I wanted it to be just like the book, a mystery. But the way you could tell that Ray Walston was the same 4 people was sad. His black hair Piece for Barney Northrop looked like it was going to fall off and second. My 5-year-old sister figured out the mystery after the first 10 minutes. And his pretrial of Sandy seemed more angry, and selfish then the sweet funny Sandy who always tried to cheer everyone up in the book. Sydelle Pulaski was more like Mrs. Bomback then the ignored, depressed Sydelle in the book. Well to keep this short none of the characters were the same as the book in this movie. The Westing Mansion looked smaller then my house and my house is very small. This movie would be so much better if they made it look more like a movie and less like my little sister going over to someone's house with a camera and trying to film their own version of it with my mom manning the camera, and them improving the script. I wish I could say more about this movie but I can't. Oh wait, Shane West is really sexy in a wheel chair.
