Goofs

At 1:12:20 into it, Willowdean is walking quickly to the building for the pageant opening. Millie yells to her "You're LATE". Willowdean replies "Well I told Lee I needed my wardrobe by noon and he said 'I'm a designer sugarplum, not a magician'". This indicates it's past noon. But about 45 seconds later, when Willowdean's mom walks on stage, she says "Hello, good morning girls". It's no longer morning when it's past noon. See more »

Good, but not like the book
7 December 2018 | by ramsayreaderSee all my reviews

The movie is a good, heartlifting movie with good music and enjoyable characters. Unfortunately it leaves out a lot of major characters and a lot of the book plot. If you haven't read the book you will like it even more, irregardless it is worth the watch.
