I saw this and have to tell you, I was very disappointed. I'm a longtime fan of the works of Mrs. Wilder, and feel strongly that this, if anything, was shameful to her memory and legacy. It is painfully obvious that the books were not read in great detail (or at all.) Perhaps it would have been better with different people in the roles (none of them were very believable). I watched it all the way through, hoping that something would come out of it to redeem it. I know not everyone would agree with me, but it just seems to be a bit of common sense that if you are going to make a movie about what someone has written, try and stay true to the writers words.
