Director Ken Kwapis never used the traditional phrase "Action!" to begin the actors' performance on set. Instead he said, "Quiet, please, and um, uh, g'head." This method was much more relaxed and allowed the actors to begin at their own pace. However, he did get teased about it - someone even printed up bright orange T-shirts quoting him and handed them out to the crew. See more »

My 10 year old daughter and I went to see this yesterday. I haven't read the books, but she has. We had mixed reviews...I enjoyed the movie but Elizabeth was terribly disappointed. She kept whispering "Mom, that's not in the book"..."that didn't happen that way"...and apparently some pretty major discrepancies exist.
Because I didn't have any plot expectations. I thought the movie was well done. The characters were believable, the acting was great, the topics were handled in a manner that was suitable for my pre-teen to watch. The comments I overheard from the other audience members (99% teenage girls at this Friday matinée!) were positive.
My rating is a combination of my score (8 or 9) and her score (4 or 5). So just a word of caution...if you expect the move to follow the book, you may be disappointed.
