I have never read the books....nor have I seen the Jim Carrey movie. So, when I saw this come up on Netflix, I wasn't very interested.

Then, I decided to check it out...with my kids. Wow.... I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought NPH was great...and loved the kids.

Then I decided to check out the first book on Kindle, since it was on sale. I am totally surprised how similar...almost verbatim.... the series is to the book. I think that is wonderful.

I've seen comments about CGI.... the only thing that really distracted me was some shots where they digitally put Sunny's face in. I believe that only happened in one scene.
