Not all of the hedgehogs used for this movie are the species that live in the wild in England, which have brown underbelly fur. Some are a larger specimen of the African Pygmy variety of hedgehog that are easily found at pet stores in the United States. These are the ones shown with the white faces and bellies and "chocolate chip" colored spines. See more »
Is it as good as the original? No. Is it worth watching? Yes
I adore The Secret Garden, it is one of my favourite movies ever. Back to the Secret Garden is not as good, but much better than I thought it would be, considering I was expecting an atrocity in all honesty. True, some of the dialogue is trite, some of the characters are underused(Colin for instance) and while Joan Plowright plays older Martha very well with a sweet sincerity I wasn't entirely convinced by how Martha was written some of it was on the contradictory side. That said, it is beautifully filmed, the soundtrack is soothing and the story is interesting with cute scenarios. The cast are excellent, particularly Florence Hoath and Camilla Belle, but the performances of David Warner, George Baker and Cherie Lunghi aren't to be disputed either. All in all, not as good as the original but worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox
