Well, I've not much to say about this one. I was disappointed. Yes, yes, I know. Everyone has been saying Where The Wild Things Are was not a great movie. Totally portays Max as a terrible, bratty, awful, annoying little boy. Not at all the Max we all know and love from the book. Because seriously, Max was obviously a lonely little boy who probably acted up for attention in the book. Right?
Yea, so in the movie he is this awful, loud, obnoxious, whiney, screaming, distructive boy. A little boy that I wanted to smack across the face. Hard. And I don't hit people. Especially not kids.
I checked out after realizing what an ass Max was. Then.....The Wild Things. Sigh. They weren't right either. I think they had to really try to draw out the characters here in order to make a full length movie. I think someone took liberties they shouldn't have.
The movie ruined the book for me :( I'm going to try to forget the movie. I'm going to try to pretend I never saw it. That way I can read this book to my child one day and still enjoy it. Hopefully.
I award Where The Wild Things Are:
ZERO SEERSUCKER SUITS. DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE IF YOU EVER READ (AND LOVED) THE BOOK!!!
