Papa March is seen in his Army Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) with rank insignia (captain's "railroad tracks") on both collars. Army officers did not wear rank insignia on both collars of the BDU but rank insignia on the right collar and branch insignia on the left collar; as he has been identified as a surgeon, he would have worn railroad tracks on the right and the caduceus insignia of the Medical Corps on the left. (This is still not nearly as bad a goof as in the 1994 version Little Women, set during the Civil War as was the original novel, where every other soldier seen in uniform beside Papa March wore both officers' shoulder boards and enlisted men's stripes!)

Oh my gosh. I thought this movie would never end. I just could not make myself care about any of the characters in this movie except maybe the father of the girls. The character Jo was so irritating that I don't see how she could have ever made a friend, and certainly not with the professor. I would not want to spend more than five minutes with her. The movie's moving from past to present was hard to follow because with the exception of one character, the actors always looked the same age. I couldn't find any of the romantic match-ups believable, nor could I find the relationships among the sisters as touching as I was supposed to. Nothing about the story, the characters, or the relationships seemed authentic.
