The funniest thing was the mixture of teen girls and older women there to watch. Whenever there was a good part half the theater was squealing and giggling and the other half was "shhhh"ing.
I also thought it was pretty cool that there are some books that got these teens to read! I cannot recall any books that were popular like that when I was in school.
I can't say the movie was great, but it definitely was not a dud. It's almost impossible to fit a 600 page book in a two hour movie. All great books should be given the miniseries treatment like A&E's Pride and Prejudice or the CBC's Anne of Green Gables.
