Welcome, Instapundit readers!
If you're one of those grownups who read Bridge to Terabithia in the '70's, or '80's, or '90's and have seen or will see the movie, please post a comment on your take on its success as a film.
The InstaDaughter said it was "a-a-a-l-l-l right," which meant not bad but not great. Although she's a steady reader of fantasy, the computer-generated creatures bothered her, too, particularly in the rather sappy ending. I'd like to know what your kids think about the movie as a movie, and also how it compares with the book if they had read it first. I'd also be interested in whether they now want to go on to read the book after seeing the film.
