Intriguing but, IMHO Just not the real Nancy Drew,
This review is from: Nancy Drew [DVD]  (DVD)
Having been addicted to the books as a child, I was thrilled to discover this DVD and very much looked forwards to watching it.
Sadly, I was somewhat disappointed with the results. Although an intriguing film in its own right, it just wasn't the Nancy Drew I had pictured; and not the Nancy Drew that I remembered reading about in Carolyn Keene's books.
Nancy was made to appear so retro that she was unbelievable as a teenager. Carson Drew looked nothing like the person I had pictured in my mind - and came over as far too young and attractive. (If he really looked like that, why was there never a second Mrs Drew?)! The plot was a little drawn out and rather laughable in places. However, on the other hand, the baddies were belivably bad, and the conclusion to the plot was great.
My conclusion - an enjoyable film for those who don't remember the books or the TV series from the late 1970s.
