Movie Reviews

No where near!
M. Colvin | SEK | 12/12/2008

"If I hadn't read the book this might have been an ok movie. However, the movie is NOTHING like the book! I use it to show my students what they are missing out so many times when they watch a movie instead of reading the book...We Venn Diagram the movie and the book. It makes a good compare and contrast."

"I had my English class read the book, they loved it and of course asked if a movie was ever made. I told them about the terrible reviews that it got, but they said they'd write a comparison if I let them watch it. Deal! Anything to get them to write more. 90% of them liked the book more and most thought the movie was terrible and changed far too many details."

"This is a cute movie that goes along with the Novel The Westing Game. The book is MUCH better, but my 6th graders enjoy the movie. As an educator, the movie lends itself to a great writing prompt on Compare and Contrast. I am glad I purchased the movie."

"The video follows the book somewhat. Of course there are deviations. It is appropriate for for older children, too. I was glad to find no suggestive remarks or bad language."
