Worst. Movie. Ever.
14 June 2003 | by WeaponXProjectSee all my reviews

This is the worst movie ever made. The only thing it has in common with the classic story of Tom Sawyer, is the name and a scene with painting the fence. If you are to make a movie based on something, please leave something from original. And if you change stuff from the original, please do it for a good reason and to make the movie better. This movie is just a terrible movie stand only. But then add the name Tom Sawyer, and make it a "modern adventure", it becomes a terrible movie that is just ripping off a name. I have watched some bad films in my life, and enjoyed many of them. But this movie, AHHHHHHHHHHH. Bad acting, bad characterization! Bad filming, bad story! This movie contains a bully who is, guess what: fat,trouble making and then turns good real easy. You got the girlfriend character who, no matter what stupid things happen, is still in love with the so called modern "Tom Sawyer". You know what, I'll just stop because this movie already wasted too much of my time. This movie is the worst movie I ever seen in my life! Don't, please don't watch it.
