The Fantastic Mr. Movie



I read this book as a kid LOVED it. When I saw that they were making a movie out of it, I was really REALLY excited. But then when I saw the previews, I was really REALLY not excited. It was true that my x-boyfriend was playing the leading voice. But I am a purist, and I could tell that they had changed the plot from the book to the movie. A LOT. And I was seriously worried they would ruin it and make me hate it, Wes Anderson not withstanding.

However, I am pleased to annouce that the movie was WONDERFUL. Love, love, loved it. If you haven't taken your kids, self, grandma, neighbor, and trash man to see it, do. You will love it every time. Even with the trash man. I promise.

I was leery as well since "where the wild things are" and "The Cat in the Hat" etc were all Sooooo different from the books but the I read an article where he family said they REALLY liked the movie and felt it stayed true to his work...So it's on my list to see.

I was wondering what you'd think of this movie since you were such a fan of the book.

We went to see The Frog Princess this weekend. Really cute. I like her the most of all the Disney Princesses.
