Graeat film for children Mar 26, 2007
My daughter can't get enough of "Winn Dixie". There is no inapproriate adult humor. The story is sweet and inspiring, a must have for animal lovers and pet owners with children!
my 7-yr old loves this movie! Mar 17, 2007
We rented this movie from netflix a while back and ever since my daughter has been asking us to rent it again or to buy it. We finally bought it for her and as soon as it got here, she watched it.
It's the story of a girl who is new in town, her dad is a pastor which makes it hard for her to make friends. She meets Winn-Dixie, a dog, and begs her dad to let her keep him. The rest of the story shows how Winn-Dixie is definitely more than your average dog.
We love this movie! Feb 16, 2007
This movie is beautifully cast - Anna Sophia Robb has such a light in her eyes, Cicely Tyson is a wonderful Gloria Dump, and Dave Matthews is perfect for the role of Otis. My son and I have watched this movie time and time again. It has been equally heartwarming every time. The lessons in the movie are simple ones, but they are important ones for children to learn, and equally important for adults to remember. If you're looking for a good film to watch with your family, Because of Winn-Dixie will not disappoint.
great family movie Feb 16, 2007
This was a great movie to watch as a family ! great story great values!
The Book vs the Movie Feb 5, 2007
I read the book "Because of Winn-Dixie" before I saw the movie, and the differences are striking. I think the biggest difference is in the dad. Opal's father really lets her down in the movie, like when he stayed home instead of coming to the party. In the book, his shortcomings are more incidental than purposeful. Also, he is more open in the book, as he tells her about her mother's drinking problem right off the bat, without prompting. He seems like a much less adequate parent in the movie, as he is unable to stick to his guns about ANYTHING, and always ends up giving in and giving her what she wants.
The characters looked different than I expected them to. Gloria Dump just seemed like a harmless old lady in the book, but in the movie, she actually LOOKED like a witch. Otis seemed like an old man in the book. The kid's characters were most like what I expected them to be from the book.
There were some elements from the book that I missed, like the bigger role Sweetie Pie played. But overall, I think the movie was well made for its audience, though it wasn't as compelling as the book.
