Seeing the Eve Plumb and Susan Dey in this '78 adaptation was interesting. Good to see Greer Garson on the screen as the Aunt. Blockbuster sent the first disc and we have to wait for the second; they should send both at the same time if you have a subscription to two discs at a time.
Make sure that you get both discs at the same time, as the movie is on two discs. I have no idea why, but they skipped over part 2 and sent me another movie instead. Wish they had sent them both together, so I could have watched the entire movie at once. This version of Little Women is interesting. It's long, so there's time to get in a lot of scenes from the book that other versions had to leave out due to time. Unfortunately, the screenplay is overly dramatic, and the performances were only okay. I couldn't get into the story because the acting was lacking, but you'll probably enjoy this movie if you're looking for an old-fashioned family-friendly movie. If you're looking for a better version of Little Women, there are several...in fact any other version than this is better.
I loved the book and enjoyed the old movie with Katherine Hepburn. This version was painful to watch. Horrible acting and lame dialogue. Laurie was irritating instead of charming. Jo was whiny instead of strong. Amy was a drama queen and NOT in a good way and I kept expecting to hear Beth saying, "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia." The story line was twisted and changed (Mr. Lawrence slapped Laurie and Laurie pushed him!) and ruined, as far as I'm concerned. I was going to watch this with my granddaughter but she deserves better!
