      Audience Member I had all but the first, like, 10 minutes of this on a VHS as a kid full of Hallmark ads as part of the "Hallmark Hall of Fame." I can't believe I didn't wear out the tape, actually. Or maybe I did. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I love the secret garden Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review jona i Less-than-brilliant script. The children aren't the best actors, but it still captures the heart of the story, due to being made with good intention. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A TERRIFIC movie. I first saw this movie, as a play at the Baton Rouge Theater. The actors did such a outstanding job, that kept you focused through the entire play. I liked it so much, I went out and bought the movie. I recommend this movie to all movie fans, TRY IT. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This is my favorite version of The Secret Garden.
