While Lori and I watched it (in the movie theatre..sssshhhhh), I sat there and commented, "That’s not in the book…That’s not in the book…hey, that didn’t happen in the book", and all the while Lori going, "Shhhh! Just enjoy the movie"! I was driving her nuts!
Good movie, though Hollywood took a few liberties with the story line.
The trailers were misleading.
We got it last night and I fell asleep
(Alright, I usually do fall asleep watching dvds anyway,
but I didn’t even try to stay awake for this).
I would compare it to a Hallmark Hall of Fame production.
Good source material and ideas; bad production.
Definitely, DO NOT recommend the movie to introduce friends
to C.S. Lewis.
CS Lewis was asked after he had written the book if Holy-waste could do a movie about the book. CS Lewis flatly refused saying in effect that he would rather have someone read the book, and allow their imagination paint the picture than Holly-waste mess with the plot.
BTW, I never recommend any movie that is based on a book to anyone. I want to read the book BEFORE I see the movie. I thought it was good, but in my opinion, the movie was a bit off the book, but that’s Holly-waste for you.
