The film differs greatly from the novel. Much of the adult content in the novel, including a rape sequence and Abigail's affair with the detective, was removed in order to keep the film at a PG-13 rating. This effectively changed the target audience of the film to preteens and teenagers (which was apparent in box-office records), as opposed to the adult target audience of the book. See more »
In the mall scene there is a "First Act" drum set in the background scenery. First Act musical instruments did not begin until 1995. See more »
I remember being really small; too small to see over the edge of a table. There was a snow globe, and I remember the penguin who lived inside the globe. He was all alone in there, and I worried for him.

Like a bag of jelly beans... but not in a good way.
If you read the book, please don't see the movie. I repeat, if you read the book, please don't see the movie.
I just read the book, and was by a RedBox and decided to see how well Jackson could put such a beautiful, poignant novel into a movie. I should have known, when it was so short, that it couldn't be any good. But honestly, I was appalled at just how bad it was.
The one thing that can be said is the actors did a wonderful job, and it's pretty. There's a couple good scenes in it, but overall, it's just sad.
They kind of took several flavors of jellybeans and threw it into a bag. It has nothing to do with anything. I did not get buttered popcorn, I did not get cherry, I did not get strawberry daiquiri. I just got a lot of sweet, bean-shaped tidbits that kind of, halfheartedly formed something resembling a plot.
The book made me sob. The movie? It kind of confused me.
It was so bad, I started making notes on green sticky notes and sticking them to the bottom of my television.
I would so not watch this. Don't bother.
