Reviews - What do customers think about Tuck Everlasting?
Really good movie! Jan 13, 2008
Tuck Everlasting is a book that students read in middle school. I hadn't ever heard of it, but we rented the movie and I really liked it. The thought of someone never growing old and never dying was fasinating, and yet sad at the same time. Good acting and a thought provoking story.
Well made version of established classic novel for kids Dec 19, 2007
This beautifully shot Disney movie is a sensitive and well made version of the much loved children's novel of the same name by Natalie Babbit .It is set in upstate New York at the turn of the twentieth century and its Big Theme is the choice brtween mortality and immortality with a ringing and positive message that one should not fear death but instead fear the unlived life ,one devoid of love and compassion .
Teenager Alexis (Winnie Foster)runs away from her restrictive parents (Victor Garber and Amy Irving)and discovers a woodland fountain of youth as well as encountering the Tuck family who have lived on the properties of the fountain for over 100 years .An innocent -and sensitively handled -romance develops between her and the eldest Tuck child ,Jesse (Jonathan Jackson).Soon she has to decide if she will embrace the prospect of eternal life or return to her formar existence ,changed as she will be by her experiences -by no means an easy or facile choice .
The movie is shot through with both melancholy and humour .It is well made although sentimentality is not always kept at bay.Foster and Jackson give strong performances and there is a good Ben Kingsley cameo .Willaim Hurt and Sissy Spacek as the Tuck parents unwisely adopt Irish accents and neither of them sustain them especially well .This is a minor blemish on what is an affectionate and sensitive piece of work , is suitable for a family audience
Supernatural Love Story for the Whole Family Nov 2, 2007
My 4-year-old grand daughter thought the male lead was cute, so I rented the movie for her. After renting it several more times at her request, I finally bought the DVD. We have watched it no less than 20 times. It is a supernatural love story that stresses family values and unrequited love. The story connects to persons of any age, making it wonderful joint viewing for both a child and adult. It's a movie you will share over and over.
sweetest movie ever!! Sep 18, 2007

The Tuck Review Jun 5, 2007
I personally loved this book. It is about a girl Winnie who finds a magical water spring. She saw a boy maybe a little bit older than her drink from it. when she asks if she could have some he says no. Then she demands the water because she owns the wood that the spring is in. He stops her then the boys mom and older brother come, he is relieved because they would know what to do. They take her to their house but on the way there they tell her the story. The story is that long ago they drank from it and as they grew on in life they realized that they were not getting any older from the time they drank the water. so they figured that they were immortal when Jesse the youngest boy fell out of a tree 30ft high right on his neck and didn't even hurt him, then when Tuck the father got bitten by a rattle snake and did not die, then Jesse ate poisen frogs stools and didn't even get sick, then the horse got mistaken for a deer and got shot and it didn't even leave a mark, thats when Tuck the father found out it was the water, so to make sure of it one day Tuck took his shotgun and before Jesse, Mae the mother, or Miles the older brother could do any thing he shot himself in the heart! It knocked him down but barely left a scratch. So the family tells the girl not to tell anyone about the spring. But the problem was a man heard the whole story and was planning to sell thge water! Thats when the story begins, but I am not going to tell you any more. But the one thing that made the story was that Jesse and Winnie fall in love. So I really think it was a great book.
