I enjoyed the book, the movie is HORRIBLE: poor representation of the best seller. to many changes. From start to finish the movie leaves out and changes to many details that makes it exciting, and lacking in special effects, I should have stayed home and read the second book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

they changed some key elements to continue with sequels, which i think they sabotaged themselves for. it was slow-moving, lacked real concrete plot in comparison to the books. even twilight had a better screenplay conversion the first time around, but it may be just me. ive been looking forward to this movie ever since they started filming last year and i was just disappointed by the screenplay as a whole.
if you didn't read the books, you will probably enjoy it. the plot is JUST okay for the lamen person.

I didn't like the choices of actors for the characters of the book. I really didn't like that they "merged" characters - the housekeeper and the librarian! Ethan's elderly aunts, the dog Bo Radley, and Ethan's father were never seen. That doesn't even cover so many changes that the screenplay made in the story. I'd really like my money back on this one.

Probably a miss cast of main character. Didn't connect with her at all. It was ok, enjoyed other characters in movie, it got boring but picked up, then kinda fell apart in one scene. Wait for on demand.
