We were so excited to find this movie after finishing the book. The book was so engaging, and we could hardly wait to see the movie! Did the movie makers even read the book?!! Very loosely based. Kind of missed the whole point of the growth of friendship and skills of the boys! Scenery was good, but totally inaccurate to the book!

My family and I finished listening to the book and decided to watch the movie since we enjoyed it so much. To say the least: I was dissapointed.
The only thing in common with the book is the names of the characters. The scenes aren't overly interesting and it was poorly put together. The mother spends half the movie crying and Matt is, to put it nicely, kinda wimpy and a crybaby.
I would not reccomend it, especially if you've read the book.
