I've never read the book and wish I hadn't wasted 2 hours watching this movie.

Overall a good movie kept the meaning of the book even if it to glitzy.

Great cast but very poorly edited. The plot made no sense.

I read the book as a kid and loved it. I heard the movie was trash, but tried it anyways. Yup, it's trash. Everything is wrong with it, easily one of the worst movies I've ever watched. If you wanna watch a movie the respects your childhood memories and builds a worthwhile movie based on them, watch Christopher Robin.

Full of weird, new age/creepy undertones throughout. Would not recommend to kids or adults - also it was just boring and bad acting. Costumes, makeup and CG were nice though.

Wow, one of the worst movies ever! Didn't appeal to anyone in family.

Guess I'm getting too old for these. It could also have been watching GOTs final of fourth season, this had no pacing or story line verses it.

Let me preface this by saying that I’ve never read the book.....
I don’t think I’d recommend the movie. It leaves something to be desired. Lackluster. Also, some parts were a bit confusing. As I was watching, I got the impression things (details) that helped it (the plot) flow in the book were left out. But i won’t know that for sure until I read the book....one day...maybe.

Out of this wide, wide universe... this huge universe... with all these brothers and sisters and moms and dads... he found us. And we found each other. That's pretty rare.
===
This is our love. Don't worry. It's not gone. It's just... It's just enfolded. Love is always there. Even if you don't feel it... it's always there for you.

If he walked in that door today... what would happen?

He's one of the greatest minds in recent history. He's prodigious. But of course, we can't take any credit for our talents. It's how we use them that counts.

I don't wonder and I don't care!
- Hmm. Well, maybe that's your problem!
I don't have a problem!
===
Yeah! There's some things I need to say to my dad. Maybe now I can finally say them. It's funny how it took a trip around the universe to get me there.
===
===
They work well in a moment of peril... for they see that which is enfolded. Not gone, just enfolded.
===
I wanted to shake hands with the universe. But I should've been holding yours.
===
And you love me! That's why you make milk for me on stormy nights. That's why you check in on me during recess. That's why you wanted to find Daddy, to make me happy! That's why the Misses took a chance on me. Because they felt your love. And you should love me because I deserve to be loved!

(Adapted from book's quote: Love. That was what she had that IT did not have.)
