Goofs

Many of the fashions worn and phrases said in the film were never around in the 1950's. The girls' dresses were made by a 21st century company and were not a style worn in the 50's. Phrases like "just drop it", "you guys" and "no way" weren't used in the 1950's, either. These phrases originated from the Eighties. See more »

Disappointment yet again!
12 June 2014 | by keithwells2002See all my reviews

I read these books when and as they were released so it's definitely been a while. I loved the books and became a fan of most of V.C. Andrews books. I was so excited when I heard they were making the original movie but so disappointed when I saw it. Here again I was so EXCITED hoping that this time they would really capture the emotions that I felt reading the books. I won't go as far as saying it was a waste of my afternoon and I will watch Petals on the Wind just for the nostalgia but my expectations have been tempered quite a bit.

I did enjoy Ellen Burstyn/Grandmother (always plays evil with eerie accuracy) ,Kiernan Shipka/Cathy, and Mason Dye/Christopher but other than that it was certainly nothing special. I read a review that said Heather Graham/Corrine seem bored and vacant. I actually didn't think she was anything more than a robotic distraction. The movie would have been better with her written out of it.
