This was not exactly my favorite adaptation of this story, but it was okay. IF I remember correctly, it was filmed like a play.

I remember watching this as a little girl but never was able to find this version again. Thank you, Flixster for reuniting us again. lol

I've seen this movie, and it's cool & good, my family has a version like this, and I like it. It's cool.

Pretty good for a made for t.v. movie, but Mary is played by an American, they change the cause of her parents' deaths, and she is not nearly as unlikable to start with. Plus, Mary was a blond, and this actress is not.

My favorite book as a kid, I occasionally re-read it. This movie came pretty close to being as good as the book.

I love the soundtrack to this movie! I mean, the movie itself is good, but it's the music that makes me love it.

I love these movie I have read the book twice first when I was in 3rd grade and again last year. It is soo sweet

This movie is awesome. I totally recommend it. It has a so-so ending, kinda sad and kinda nice at the same time :)
February 5, 2007
I like this version so much better than the remake. I hated that there was a different ending in the remake!
January 31, 2007
The end of this film seems to imply that Mary hooks up with her cousin. I know the grown-up cousin is Colin Firth, but that's still ishy.

This movie is great! our school is doing the play. it's gonna be awsome! i highly recommend it! it's kinda of long but it's worth seeing!

The best version of this often filmed story. Very hard to find. But the hunt is worth it. The child actors deliver. Gennie James is utterly convincing. Barret Oliver delivers a ghostly performance of a young man preternaturally aware of his own mortality. The character Colin is the pragmatic voice of an all-too-grown-up young man. A Hallmark Hall of Fame production. Find it, watch it, and share it with your children.

I just don't think I like anything about the Secret Garden. Who cares if you keep a garden secret? Oh no, someone might pull the daisies!
September 16, 2013
Less-than-brilliant script. The children aren't the best actors, but it still captures the heart of the story, due to being made with good intention.
August 12, 2006
This 1987 versioin of [i]Secret Garden [/i]is mixed bag: on one hand the locations are beautiful, on the other production values and acting ranges from great to awful! Best performances are given by Derek Jacobi and Gennie James. Gennie comes off as 1980s versioin of Margaret O'Brien taking to role of Mary Lennox with O'Brien-like skill. Good could've been better.
