Perfect, my daughter and her class loved watching the movie.

Great movie; I loved the original book as a child and this film does it justice.

In some ways the movie was better than the book, and I never say that!

"Tuck Everlasting" is the (near-perfect) movie adaptation of Natalie Babbitt's classic novel about a young girl who meets a family immortals. If you are looking for a nice family movie or love story, Disney's "Tuck Everlasting" is a fine selection for your viewing pleasure.
THE STORY:
Winnie Foster, daughter of a wealthy couple, ventures off into her family's woods one day and comes across a mysterious boy, Jesse, and his family, the Tucks, who seem to be "lost in time." Feeling trapped herself in her "too prim and proper" for her family, Winnie feels liberated with the carefree lifestyle of the Tucks. However, the Tuck family secret is something that can very well, and nearly does, bring Winnie's world crumbling down in front of her very eyes.
THE DISCUSSION:
"Tuck Everlasting" has long been at the top of the list of books the school system loves to have students read, and for very good reason. The story, very carefree but at times a little deep and occasionally dark, provides good discussion fodder on issues such as life and changing society values. Winnie's conflict with her parents' values as well as the ramifications of "eternal life" make great fodder for discussion and meditation.
Overall, the movie contains all the great things you could look for in both a love story and a family movie. The relationship between Winnie and Jesse should have most couples all "warm and fuzzy" (or ill to their gut). The movie overall is very light and easy and should be enjoyable for anyone. The violence level is kept to a minimum and the "darker" elements of the story are tame enough to where it shouldn't upset anyone.
THE ADAPTATION:
Movies based on books are double-edged swords.

Tuck Everlasting definatly deserves five stars! It is the most magical movie of our time. The story is about fifteen-year-old Winnie Foster, (Alexis Bledel), who is a threat about finding out the secret of the Tucks. She meets Jesse, their youngest son, (Johnathan Jackson), and they fall in love. He decides to tell her their secret, that they drank from the spring and can never die. They will live forever. He asks her to drink and live forever with him. She must decide whether or not to drink. Should she live forever with the person she has fallen deeply in love with? Or should she live and die, just as people are ment to? In the end, she is faced with this decision. Winnie has to decide if she loves Jesse enough to live eternity with him and leave everything she has behind.
This movie is a perfect family film. It is also perfect for a date. For anyone who has ever had a dream. It's the mystical fairy tale every girl dreams of. A stand out cast and an excillent movie. This movie will leave you thinking about it for days. Tuck Everlasting is one of the best movies of all time. Every girl will find herself wishing she was Winnie. Magically romantic and makes you feel so good inside at parts. Anyone will absolutly fall in love with this movie!

Okay, I know people have had their complaints about how this movie does not follow the story found in the book. However, if you have not read the book (like me) then I think there is no reason to dislike this movie. I can see where some people are coming from, Disney does have a history of totally re-writing stories. (Like the Princess Diaries) Anyways, I still think that this movie is moving and beautiful. It will make you think twice about eternal life. It has a beautiful love story as well. My friends and I are still debating over if we liked the end or not. It is a movie that will allow you to take your own perspective in life, and you will still be thinking about it when you leave the theater and maybe even when you reach home. I highly reccomend this movie to all who love romantic and thought-probing movies.

Tuck Everlasting is a wonderfully bittersweet family film. Alexis Bledel (WB's Gilmore Girls) stars as Winnie Foster, a 15 year old girl tired of her parents strict reign on her life. When she ventures out into the woods, she discovers Jessie Tuck (Jonathan Jackson) and begins an adventure with the entire Tuck family. A Man in a Yellow Suit (Ben Kingsley) plays a mysterious role, stopping at nothing to locate the Tuck's whereabouts and discover the source of their deep and immortal secret.
With a few exceptions, Disney's Tuck Everlasting is true to Natalie Babbitt's classic book. (A couple of scenes are added to the film for dramatic effect and to build character development. In the end, they pay off quite well and it's a shame these scenes never appear in the novel, as they truly enhance the film.)
Bledel plays the part of Winnie Foster perfectly. She captures the innocence of youth and the nervousness associated with a first love to a T. She is the perfect actress for the part and Disney hit the nail on the head in casting her. Nevermind that this is her first film, as Bledel's experience from the Gilmore Girls has surely paid off and is demonstrated many times throughout the movie.
Jonathan Jackson is also great as Jessie Tuck, an eternal 17 year old who falls in love for the first time. He's an adventurous young man who likes to travel, but his life is forever changed when he meets young Winnie.
The remaining cast members also capture their characters' personalities and emotions beautifully. Ironically, however, most of the "big names" (William Hurt, Ben Kingsley, Sissy Spacek) are only secondary roles, as the film truly focuses on the relationship between Jessie and Winnie.
