I haven't read the book yet, so I'll post when I see the movie.
Hopefully the movie will be loyal to the book.
Isn't the book essentially a picture book?
We aren’t talking War and Peace here.

I did not like this movie. Max is so annoying and the whole thing is just depressing.
I could see Max as an INFP. I did love love Judith and Ira though. They were so cute/funny. Don't know how to type them though.
I took a three year old (who generally loves movies) to see it and she was ready to go after about an hour. I read the review posted and maybe the reason I didn't like this movie is because I personally couldn't identify with Max. I never would have talked to my mom the way he did and certainly would never have bit her. I hope that I never end up having a son like him.
Yeah, I saw it last night with my friend. I think it might appeal to a few older kids (9-12) but not the majority of them. I thought it was an interesting interpretation of the book - obviously the original is spartan that it was always going to be mostly interpretation!
I didn't love it, but I liked it. I thought Max should've been more of a terror though. It was toned down way too much in the second half of the movie. (Maybe I was a terror as a kid?) Overall, I wish it had been less morose and talk-y. Especially his leaving. It was always jubilant I thought, and the movie made it so wet and sappy instead. But I liked the parts with his mom and family life.
