A TERRIBLE stab at remaking a CLASSIC!
15 May 2008 | by island_aliveSee all my reviews

I saw "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn" listed on the FXM channel, and not having seen it in a while, I was pretty excited. Well, it turned out to be this 1974 "remake".......probably THE worst remake on God's green earth! It was so far removed from the classic original, that it was almost unrecognizable.

What were these people thinking?? The script was fourth rate at best, and the acting, especially Pamelyn Ferdin, was horrendous. The whole acting ensemble was the worst casting attempt I've ever seen. The casting director must have taken a page from "Where Are They Now" and "Who The Hell Are They To Begin With".

This movie is SO BAD, there should be a law against airing it.
