I don't often bail on a movie after 30 minutes (although I may fast-forward extensively), but I did this time. I was expecting more from something with Ellen Burstyn. Slow pace, flat acting, cheap production values. Not worth a 90-minute investment.

I felt this remake stayed true to the aspects of the book and enjoyed it. Despite the slow pacing, and at times stiff acting. Overall much of an improvement than the 1987 adaptation, and good cast selection.

Just not good. It's not trashy enough. And the production feels very cheap. It's very much movie of the week television. and Heather Graham seems to be zoning through most of it. Although she looks great.

Meh. It was ok. Changed simple things, which was annoying. Enjoyed the book much more.

Haven't read the book in a couple of years, but the movie appears to be a pretty faithful adaption. Not a bad movie. Was hoping for a bit more scene chewing from Burstyn, but she played the "evil" grandmother with a touch more sympathy than I hoped for.
