As a movie, this isn't bad. Compared to the book, which is one of my favourites, though, it doesn't really measure up. So many things are added and taken away...

A sweet, feel-good movie.

As another patron mentioned, the selfishness of one of the characters was appalling. I don't care if it's Disney or not: it isn't worth your time.

Sweet movie, but not saccharine like a lot of the Disney garbage. It feels more "real" than the average kids movie. A bit too mature for my 4 year old, though she loved it.

This is movie is a bit boring. I got outraged at the selfishness of two of the girls. Sickening! I could not believe my eyes when I saw why the movie is PG: there is smoking!!!! Yet, movies like “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” that has a homosexual dog and two dogs are shown being united in matrimony in a church, are not rated PG!

Cute, heartwarming story with fantastic acting. Good for a mother-daughter movie night, or romantics.

Cute movie. As a purist, I think I prefer the original. My 15 year olds comment at the end of the movie was "nothing happened!" Meaning. No shooting, no tragedy, no murder etc....A sweet story all around.
