Most critics are positive and surprised by the story they made up from the kids book. Really enjoyable. 8.something on IMDB. Should give it a go, really. Can't wait for Season 2.
e.g. that film of The Cat in the Hat. it's just branding isn't it? the book doesn't have enough material for a film. but it will get more people into the cinema than a new unknown title
i'm suspicious of all reboots and remakes!
