Saw the movie finally. It really was good. I liked how it wasn't just the story redone but had Joe commenting on parts and narrating. The actors were more just to emphasize his words then anything. I watched it with my husband who, even with my constant telling him to do so, had never read the book. He was really impressed. He was telling his friend all about it the next day, going on about it like I did the book... maybe there's hope for him yet. I was worried that they'ld leave out the part where he gets the song stuck in his head. That part was really, well sort of funny, to me because I know that song because when my son was really small it was his favorite and he wanted to listen to it all the time. But happily it was there too! So great movie and I'm glad that someone mentioned it.
