Just came back from watching Bridge to Terabithia.
While it is well done, I will say that the previews are misleading about what happens in the plot.
It is a Disney family movie in every sense of the word.
I read the book back in primary school and I remember quite enjoying it.
It could have ended a completely different way in the same vein as another movie :cough: Monster's Inc :end cough:, but it didn't. Which did surprise me a little as it would have been so tempting and easy to do. Especially given Hollywood's inclination produce family movies that are so heart-warming that something inside me haemorrhages.
A few of the characters are a little too stereotypical: Jess's sisters for instance, and some of the other children at school.
On the whole it's worth seeing, but maybe on dvd.
Days to go...
