I really liked this movie. The storyline was great. It was fast paced compared to the book. I didn't care for the book at all, but the movie was pretty good.

Movie Reviews

A terrible adaptation of the book
z hayes | TX | 03/18/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Like many other reviewers here, I loved the book and was anticipating the screen adaptation. To my utter disappointment, this Lifetime movie version was just a hack job, and did a complete disservice to the wonderful work in was adapted from.

The movie leaves out major characters and plot threads, and made me feel like I was watching a disjointed movie. That is what this movie is - disjointed and confusing. There is no real character development and because so much of the original novel has been deleted or changed, we are left with unanswered questions and puzzlement as to why some characters behave the way they do.

I would recommend reading the book first and if you like it, then you'd probably want to skip this poor excuse of an adaptation. I hope someone will eventually give the novel the right cinematic treatment it deserves.

"Eight of us went to New York last year and we bought the book and all read it. For the anniversary of the event I purchased the DVD so we could watch it together! I watched it first and it really was very close to the book! I think the girls will enjoy it! It didn't have the heart of the book but it kept its integrity. I think folks who haven't read the book will also enjoy it!"
