Principal Jenkins: You - you we're a top student. Top attitude. But, look at you now. You - you're aggressive, you're hostile, you shut everybody out, and then wonder why they don't like you.
Meg: I don't wonder and I don't care!

Such a sad disappointment
17 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I've been waiting over 20 years to see this beautiful story come to life, and was beyond excited when I saw that it was finally going to happen. I told everyone about it, many of whom had never even heard of the book. Now I just look like an idiot. The only positive I can cite is the acting by Chris Pine, and there were a couple of emotional moments that were well done. Otherwise, the entire movie was a poorly thrown together mess. The costumes were horrible, with Oprah's eyebrows looking like drugstore stick-on gems (and they weren't even straight!) Oprah's acting was atrocious. Reese Witherspoon was slightly entertaining, but even that felt forced. As for the story.....if you loved the book, don't see this movie. Just remember the book the way it is, you don't want to see it like this. They've removed key parts of the story, changed SOOOO much that it's barely recognizable. I understand that no movie ever sticks 100% to the book, and accept that each director will have their own interpretation. But this was just a massacre. And no, I couldn't care less that they changed the race of Meg, that's the least of the problems this nightmare has.
