Completely passed over in the theaters, Disney's wonderful Tuck Everlasting gets a second chance on home video. Image quality here, with a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer, is simply gorgeous. The beautiful scenery and earth tones used throughout are wonderfully reproduced with this transfer. Detail is strong and skin tones are perfect. The 5.1 English Dolby Digital soundtrack isn't exactly spacious, but there is some limited use of separation in the front speakers, especially in regard to William Ross' lush musical score. Dialogue and sound effects are clear and distortion free, with no distracting elements. Supplements aren't necessarily extensive here, but there are still a number of nice extras geared more to adults than children. A real surprise is not one, but two audio commentaries. The first is from director Jay Russell and screenwriter James Hart , with the second comprised of Russell again and cast members Jonathan Jackson, Alexis Bledel, and Scott Bairstow. Both scene-specific tracks give each participant plenty of time to voice their opinions, views, philosophies, and memories. In addition to this are "Lessons of Tuck," brief segments hosted by Jackson that look at different issues raised in the film, with additional interviews with the cast, crew, and a number of teens. These optional segments interrupt the film, then take you right back to the where you originally were. A real plus here is an all too brief biographical featurette on writer Natalie Babbitt, who has many interesting comments on this book and her writing. Finally, are a number of Disney-related trailers (including Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion, and commercials).

This book is adventurous. It teaches people to live life to the fullest. Don't ever want to stop your life right where you are, because you won't live life right. The author's purpose to writing this book is to entertain us with an amazing story. This book is one of my favorites and I Love It! When I read the book, I wasn't expecting the book to end the way it did. Tuck Everlasting is a book that can be read by anyone. It is a narrative story, and it is amazing. I don't know if I could've lived without knowing about Tuck Everlasting. The setting takes place in the woods. The Tucks' have lived in the woods for a really long time. Winnie Foster is my favorite character out of the bunch. This book relates to me. Sometimes I would like to freeze time and stay young, but if you do that you will never learn lessons or live life. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventurous and love stories.
This movie in my opinion may be the only one ever to be better than the book. It had a wonderful moral with a lot of romantic and happy times in the middle to keep you loving it even though the ending was incredibly sad. Not particularly ideal for younger children as some parts can be seen as scary. Overall a marvelous movie, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
This DVD has problems being played on a computer legally. This is a serious problem. Don't buy this on DVD unless you have an actual DVD player!
To me the movie was a little different from the book.But it was still the greatest thing i ever saw and read!!!! In the beginning it seemed a little boring. But once you get into the book you'll see it's outstanding!!!!! They had eternal life and everything!! OOPS!! I've already said to much to those whom have not read it.But it's kind of like a sort of book they you would sit and read all day. I read it to my daughter and she loved it!! And she's only six!! She told me ",Mommy could you read it again please,please,please?!?"It was hillarious!! I ended up reading her that the whole week and weekend for bed!!But if you read it it wiil have you thinking. Would you ever want eternal life? But thats up to you i hope you make the right choice. Like i believe i did when i read it.Thank You for reading!! GOODBYE!!
I just saw the movie and it was very slow. It dragged on too long and it felt as if it would never end. Besides that fact though it was a pretty good but the book is way better.
As everyone knows Tuck Everlasting is an awesome book. I could not believe how well the director did the story. He might have even made this movie to measure up to the book. The scenery is absolutely amazing, and you will fall in love with all the trees and green, green grass the first time you see this movie. It is a great movie. However it is a little different from the book, it has some romance in it, and Winnie is older, but that is one of the reasons I loved this film so much. Alexis Bledel did an amazing job as Winnie Foster. She got that character down. You may know her from the popular t.v. show Gilmore Girls. Jonathan Jackson plays Jesse Tuck and also got the character down to a tee. How anyone can resist him is beyond me. I highly recomend buying this movie and treasuring it forever!!!!
Tuck Everlasting, the movie, is awesome! I haven't read the book yet but I plan to. It's so cute!!!
I don't realy like to read but this book isn't that bad. I read this book in fifth, sixth, and seventh grade. I've watched the movie of Tuck everlasting too. This book can get old after a while. It is a interesting book about a family that can live forever. They do not like the fact of there going to live forever and never die and go to heaven. They drank some kind of special water that makes you not age or die. It is a really good book.
I live right near the place 'Rock State Park' where this movie was filmed. Now everytime I visit The rocks there is a magical air about it. I expect to see the Tuck's at every turn. I love this movie!!! It has an excellent moral and a very cute, sweet, and romantic (how often do you find one wiht all 3?) guy as a lead. But not only that, the plot is beautifeul and the movie in all is very dreamlike!!
You should pretty much know how the stroy is i shouldn't need to re-write it, but the MOVIE IS SOOOOOOOO GREAT! I now wish i was living for eternity, i want to be immortal and want to take the path with Jesse that Winnie chose not to do. :( I HAVE to buy this movie!
I read the book, and I think the movie portrays it beautifully. Yes, there are many small edits, and one very large one, but the plot and storyline is the same. My favorite line was said by Angus Tuck to Winnie Foster. ''Don't be afraid of Death, Winnie. Be afraid of the unlived Life.'' You will enjoy this movie, if you have read the book or not!
all i can say is i love this movie!!! the best movie ever!!!!
This movie does not only gets the animation going but is a great entertaiment and a beautiful love story
I had to read this book in 6th grade. At first I thought it would be boring, but BOY was I WRONGE!!!! THis book ended up being exciting and it definatley draws you in. The hope of the main characters ending up together, is touching. Even if you dont usually like & quot fairy tales& quot this book is a must read.
After reading Tuck Everlasting, the book, my class watched this movie! They loved it. It really stayed close to the story and was fun to watch the book come to life!
This movie is by far one of the greatest movies i have ever seen. I knew i would love it when i first saw the previews. The love that Winnie and Jesse shared is what i have always wanted and dreamed of. Alexis Bledel and Jonathan Jackson had great chemistry and were amazing together. I have two favorite parts of the movie; the first is when Winne and Jesse are swimming together and Jesse is holding her because she didnt know how to swim. They looked so comfortable and happy together. But my favorite part of the entire movies is when Winnie just rescued May and Tuck from jail and said goodbye to them. As the Tucks drove away Jesse yelled to her ''I will love you Winnie Foster, until the day i die!'' My heart melted when he said that and i began to cry. Love is the most important thing to me and i hope more than anything to find it one day. This wasnt much a review so i will say this, if anyone is as interested and obsessed with love as i am, buy this movie, it was amazing!
The movie(filmed on Location)took place in Berlin, Maryland and it was transformed back into time where the movie takes place in a town of Treegap. The movie about a girl,Winnie Foster, much older in the movie than book. Sets out on an adventure and runs into the family of the Tuck's, where she meets Jesse Tuck and the journey of self-discovery, romance, and questions of life and death are asked. Tough questions are put in the front of your mind while and after watching this film. The all-star cast does a magnificent job at portraying each character. Alexis Bledel(Winnie Foster)a native of Houston, Texas and star of the WB's Gilmore Girls provides a great transformation of her character's different emotions. Her on-screen presences is felt by everyone. Not to be denied a stolen scene is Scott Bairstow(Miles Tuck)just watch him during the campfire scene. Amazingly Alexis, Scott, and Johnathan Jackson(Jesse Tuck)by far have their best performances in that scene. This movie asks some tough questions. I personally needed to think long and hard about some of the answers and still wasn't able to come to a conclusive decision on them. The beautiful scenery is captured and the director does a wonderful job at putting the scenes together. While the movie may lack in story development and may differ from the novel ''Tuck Everlasting'' written by Natalie Babbit it still has family entertainment to full throttle. Here is my tradtional list, of if each movie was given awards: Best Actor Male: Ben Kingsley Best Supporting Actor Male: Scott Bairstow Best Actor Female: Alexis Bledel Best Supporting Actor Female: Sissy Spacek Sotlen Scene: Campfire Scene Stolen Scene Actor(s): all three in Campfire scene. Story Development: 1worst-5best Scale: 3 Family Entertainment: 4 Overall: 4/5 stars Recommended Audience: ages 9 and up. P.S. I would like to see a sequel or similar movie in the near future.
This is one of the most well filmed movie i have seen. This realy gave me a new thought about life. One frase from this book that I will never forget is ''don't be scared of death Winnie, be scared of the unlived life''. I have the book and am loking for the cheapest price for this dvd and then i will buy it. :)
This childrens classic is both beautifully protrayed and flawlessly acted. The story brings a fantasy angle but it is mostly a bittersweet tale of life and death. This movie is truely spectacular and brings a feeling of hope to the viewer. I would recomend for all to see. Although there are a few parts that aren't suitable for children under 7.
Don't get me wrong, I loved this movie, but if you want to see it beacuse you remember the book fondly, you may be disappointed. It sticks to the basic storyline, but several scenes are embellished, and one is altered completely. Give it a shot, but don't expect an exact replica.
I think that this is one of the best movies that I have ever seen. It is so sweet and tender. It makes me cry everytime I see it. And I've seen it seven times within a few weeks. I can't wait to own the movie and CD.
