Goofs

In the scene where the doctor comes in to look at Will's ankle, the shot changes from over the doctor's shoulder to a frontal shot of the doctor at 33:50 with his lips forming only the word "bite" when the soundtrack has the words "I don't bite" so that he has a broad toothy grin when "bite" occurs on the soundtrack.

Truly Impressive
5 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To whoever made this movie: I congratulate you. The only redeeming factor in this poor excuse for a film is that it will be nearly impossible to produce any of the sequels. (Though I'm sure that won't stop you.) You have managed to destroy anything and everything that made the book wonderful and unique. To be able to something this awful with such great source material surely takes a great amount of planning and deliberation.

What, it was on accident? That is impressive.

Honestly, if you're not going to do it right, don't do it - screenwriters, directors, actors - was there anyone who felt the need to perhaps point out that this thing was a piece of crap? My father, who has never read the books, said the movie was awful, and I would dearly love the home address of the people who destroyed my favorite fantasy series.
