I personally enjoyed this film very much. There was an excerpt of the book in our sixth grade reading anthology, and this film was a very good compare/contrast for our students. I like it much better than the newer version with Dave Matthews. This one with the older filming looked more in line time-wise with the novel.

Not what I was hoping for

"This was my favorite book growing up and I've probably read it a dozen times. However, the movie was extremely disappointing. I know that is almost always the case when you like a good book the movie is usually a letdown. But this was really bad."
