Goofs

Rowling's parents lament that due to their lack of means, they will have to send their children to "public school" to be educated. In England, a "public school" is a type of privately-run school funded by (prohibitively high) fees - the term "state school" should presumably have been used. See more »

Quotes

JK Rowling: What do you think, will you ever see Harry Potter in there? Not bloody likely.

This is a truly terrible movie.
14 March 2017 | by Kim WestgarthSee all my reviews

This is an awful movie. Truly badly done. The accents are horrific and the scenery is stock shots. Getty images probably made a fortune off this one. The terminology is all wrong. The moment I saw the actual scenery I knew it was filmed in BC. You would think that Canadian actors could pull off a credible British accent. Poppy Montgomery shocks me as she is an Aussie. Surely she could at least fake a British accent. This was SUCH a disappointment. I'll bet J.K. Rowling cringed when this is brought up. No wonder its UNauthorized. Phew, what a stinker.
