Jo is the problem
2 February 2020 | by erzbetwilsonSee all my reviews

Jo is not very likable and in fact is downright mean most of the time during this movie. This could have been so much better if the writers had made Jo more endearing instead of rude and nasty. Yes, in Little Women Jo is headstrong and independent but she's never unpleasant and in this movie that's exactly what she is - unpleasant. The rest of the film is just so-so with no real depth. It's certainly not a film one will recall or watch more than once.
