No....just no.
26 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a made for television version of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and more often than not, it misses the mark. Part of it is the acting (which is occasionally hammy) but the biggest problem is the script. The Mark Twain novel was only a GENERAL guide for the script and perhaps THE most important part of the novel is missing---the slave Jim escaping down river with Huck and Huck's realization that this was a man...not just some piece of property. My assumption is that the producers didn't want to irritate the racists out there who would be offended by the novel's strong anti-slavery tone...a very cowardly way to handle this. Additionally, again and again, major portions of the story are just wrong....as if they perhaps skimmed the novel or didn't like it and so they changed it liberally...and destroyed the story as well as made it very dull. As a result, I cannot recommend you see this...try to find a much more faithful version or read the book!
