Poor acting and even worse prop arrangement made this film the pile it is.
23 August 2001 | by bonbon-2See all my reviews

This film is possible the worst adaptation of a novel since Disney did the hunchback. The props were not set for the period and the acting was some of the worst crap I have ever seen.

If a film is supposed to be set in the 1960's why not use cars and clothing and household appliances or anything from that period.

The acting was quite sub-par, which left you asking if it was a film or an after school special... I have been more impressed with Nancy McKeon's past acting abilities in "Lifetime Originals"
