Read book first.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fungus the Bogeyman [DVD] (DVD)
I hadn't read the book, but rented this film because of the book's rave reviews. Then discovered that my 7 year old grandson had seen it on TV a year or two ago, loved it and had asked his Mum to get it for him! So it was with quite a lot of excitement that he looked forward, as I did, of seeing it again. However, I found that it wasn't long before he was bored, and actually mentioned that there were parts that had bored him before. And as for me? I found half the time I wasn't sure what was going on and the rest of the time I found it quite repetitive and boring. Couldn't help feeling that it might have been different if we had already read the book and identified with the characters. I'm giving it 3 stars because of my grandson's earlier response to seeing it the first time round.
