Not as good as the book,
This review is from: Toast [DVD] (DVD)
Take my advice, dont bother with this, just read the book. The best and most humorous bits of the book dont make it into the screen adaptation (probably too risque) and the story just doesnt come alive on screen as much though if you havent read the book first this would be entertaining and bonham carter is her typical self in it which is a joy to watch. Children of that era will find interest in the props too. If you have to do both then do this first and then the book as at least then you are heading in the right direction!
