It wasn't a bad movie. It wasn't great, either.
But it served one purpose - it exposed another generation of young readers to ERB.
My daughter saw this movie with me after I begged her. "I read all the books when I was your age! It's a Disney movie, too!"
Immediately after seeing the film, she started downloading books to her Kindle. She's read 5 or 6 of them in total now and wants to read more.
