Atom User Reviews for Little Women
If you are a fan of the original, just stay home and watch that instead.
Loved this and cried a little bit... the girl that plays Beth is a beautiful actress and Jo was great. I would see it again in a heartbeat!!
Unfortunately, the updating does the venerable story few favors, and the lack of star wattage makes this Little Women a dull affair.
This version seems to have been made not to honor Alcott’s little women but instead to please the parents who want blandly wholesome family entertainment for their own. One can only imagine what Jo herself would have to say on the subject.
