OK, I saw this today and I thought I was going to hate it, but it was pretty good. Once you get over the fact that Grandma Mazur isn't right and the other three main characters aren't quite what you have in your head, the movie was good. I say go see it!

I thought it was great! I just read a review and it was horrible! I will say that I think that all movies do not have to be "films". I think it's perfectly fine to just be entertaining and not an artistic statement. It's not Oscar worthy, but Katherine does a pretty good job and it's been a long time since I read that book, but I thought they did a good job of following it. My complaint was that it was too short! But I left the theater feelin like I do after finished one of her books - like I was sad it was over... I hope they do another movie!!

Yeah, that's exactly right, Candice. It's entertaining, maybe not Academy Award material, but the theater was packed so it was clearly much anticipated and there was cheering at the end.

And you do feel sad when it's over because the relationships are just then developing.

So it sounds like they didn't completely "murder" the book!

Not a thing wrong with just being entertained. That's usually what I want from a movie anyway.

Heck, that's WHY I go to the movie.... to be entertained and to escape reality for a while.
