My daughters church youth group wanted to go see it, so off we went.
Not bad, not great.
They did a good job of being faithful to the book, but the book was not all that. It was what I call a traveling book, great for reading in a plane or when waiting on a connection. It didn't require a great deal of thought, and was distracting enough to keep you from going mad while on the road.
The kids did enjoy the movie, and what is most reassuring.
They knew it was fiction, a fact that appears to have evaded many who are speaking against this film.
