The only good thing about this movie is the premise
14 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

You could have taken the book out of the movie and still had the same plot. And I'm being generous inferring that this movie had a plot to start with.

Some decent acting mixed with some awful acting, the movie takes a good premise and then drowns it with a god-awful screenplay.

The score was intrusive, and between the cardboard acting you start to question the actions of some of the characters. Even the lead character, who has a pretty strong love for books, starts picking books up at random and reading lines out loud. Really? I mean, REALLY?

Save a couple of hours of your life and visit your local library instead.

4/10 and three of those for the panties.
