Good for a lazy Sunday
15 March 2003 | by devon1975See all my reviews

The acting was awful, but the plot was enough to keep you interested in sticking around for the full 4 hours. For a snowed-in Sunday, this is a good bet. My husband was even watching it! The film stayed true to the book, although some characters were not able to be fleshed out as much. The predictability of the movie continues until the last half-hour.
