However, if you have not read any of the books, or for that matter, if you have not read AND enjoyed the books, then I do not advise you watching this film!
The characters were all pretty much as I imagined, and as sad as it is, it was thrilling to see them 'come to life'!
You'll either hate it or love it.. or at the very least enjoy the cheesey moments!
What I liked about this film was it cleverly mixed humour with serious messages.
But some parts of the film were too long and seemed to be there just to fill up time.
