REVIEW: "Life of Pi" seemed like a book that would be ruined by the movies. Director Ang Lee proves doubters wrong.

Well, it would seem to owatonnabill that The "Life of Pi" shares the same relationhip to the reality of a boy and a tiger hitting if off as did "Dances With Wolves" accurately reflect the Sioux tribe and their relationship with whites. Stunning visual effects, superb scenery, and a suitably cloying story in both cases. However, let's be honest. Sir Tiger would have had "Pi" for lunch before sunset on the first day in the boat.

Loved the book. Anyone who hasn't read it and wants to see the movie should beware of spoilers in reviews and comments. Stop reading and just go see it.

The comparison to the Sioux tribe is grossly inadequate. Especially two days before Thanksgiving!

One of the best books I've ever read, so I have high expectations. I'm trusting Ang Lee to not ruin it for me! Curious to see how they brought this magical book to life.

Just got back from seeing it. I took five young ones ages 5 thru 8. Very good movie, but not a kid movie. Some parents were walking out, couldn't blame them. After seeing the trailer, and reading the above review plus a PG rating, I was thinking "boy befreinds tiger, together they survive shipwreck". The visual content and even just story content makes this one more like a PG-13. Hard to explain the ending to the 8-year old who had a inkling of what the story line actually is. I wish COLIN COVERT would have put some sort of warning in his review. Once again though, good movie.
