kevin p Generic adaptation of an alright book Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible. Cliched. Boring. Inaccurate. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is sometimes touching and well acted, but the film overstayed it's welcome an hour and a half in. This film could've and should've been shortened. Also the characters sometimes overreact to situations. The book was much better. You'd be better of reading that instead. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member although it has a really good story line and everthing, even when I was little I could see the terrible acting in this!
