Extremely poor adoption of the book series...
31 July 2018 | by zitronemelisseSee all my reviews

Besides the scenery, nearly nothing of the books can be found in this movie. Where the books speak about the road to friendship, self-regulation of the boys, fairness and regard for others, the movie is only cheap pranks - not following the rules in the books, that a Schreckenstein prank must be funny for all, nothing gets destroyed...

Here, everything so wonderful in the books is destroyed. Very, very sad.

And just to add: I don't have a problem modernizing the story, bringing it into today's world. But ruining the story does not seem fair to the author and all the fans. And if you get the chance, grab an original book and read it. Or read it aloud for your kids... you will see, even in the 1960/70s setting, it still pleases.
