Summary: Movie compared to the Book
Comment: While the movie wasn't nearly as good as the book, it was an excellent teaching tool for my fifth graders. Many are reluctant readers. After reading the book and viewing the movie, the book won hands down. Mission accomplished. Although the movie was somewhat of a disappointment, the service I received was excellent. If I need to purchase movies or materials for my classroom in the future, amazon.com will be one of my first stops.

Summary: Say what?? Get your facts straight!
Comment: Am I the only one that's paying attention to what's on this page or are these reviews being sent to the wrong page? All the reviews I've read here are for a completely different movie! "Cry in the Wild: The Taking of Peggy Ann" is a made for TV movie (1991) based on the true story of Peggy Ann Bradnick's 1966 abduction by a deranged mountain man (played by David Morse) that led to the largest manhunt in Pennsylvania history. The screenplay was written by Durrell Royce Crays. The abduction and subsequent manhunt was also detailed in the book "Deadly Pursuit" by Robert Cox.

Summary: Movie Based on Hatchet
Comment: This movie is based on the Young Adult novel, Hatchet. It is a good movie to show to students who have read or are reading the book. It is easy to find where it correlates to chapters in the book so you could use just part of the movie for a lesson.

The movie is very true to the book and very realistic.

Summary: Cry vs. Cry
Comment: This movie is NOT the movie of the same title based on Gary Paulsen's book, "Hatchet". Despite the identical titles, this movie is based on a very real abduction and manhunt in 1963, in central Pennsylvania. Both were released on TV in 1990, but this movie had the subtitle "The Taking of Peggy Ann." It is a very accurate account of the kidnapping of teenager Peggy Ann Bradnick, and the ensuing search that cost the life of FBI agent Terry Anderson (played by David Soul) before the kidnapper, William Hollenbaugh, was killed by the police.

The "Hatchet" "Cry" is available in DVD from Amazon. The "Peggy Ann" "Cry" is only out in VHS.

Summary: This movie is NOT appropriate for 5th grade students
Comment: I rented the movie to show to my students after we read the novel. It cut out most of the good stuff from the book, had cussing in it, and was awful. Needless to say, I didn't let the kids watch it. We just got into groups, chose our favorite scenes and worked up minidramas to act out. Don't buy this movie.
