I liked this movie
26 February 2011 | by acpaint1See all my reviews

I have read the reviews of parts one and two. The main complaints are that Meredith Monroe is a blonde and the writers did not go by the books.

Not many movies are exact copies of the book. In fact some of them the only semblance to the book, is the title.

Meredith Monroe was picked because of all the actresses that auditioned for the part she fit the part the best. They must have had a reason for keeping her blonde hair. There is no reason they could not have dyed her hair. She had dyed her hair brown for other roles. I believe she was picked for her girl next door look, and acting ability.

Meredith Monroe is a talented underrated actress. I though her and Walter Goggins did a fine job in both movies.

I think people tend to forget actors will do what the director tells them to do. So if Monroe or Goggins acts cheesy; it is because they are told to.

I have never read Laura Ingall's books so I guess I was not influenced by them. I thought for the most part the movies were good and entertaining. You have to remember these are made for TV movies, and they don't have the multi million dollar budget.
