Audience Reviews for Little Lord Fauntleroy

Not feeling too verbose after my monstrous [i]Sweeney[/i] review. [i]Holiday[/i] was good but not spectacular; it was a tad dull but Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant have nice chemistry that keeps things interesting for at least the first hour. [i]Little Lord Fauntleroy[/i] is a boring movie that is mainly notable for Alec Guiness. The boy is alright but annoying at times. Not terribly bad but nothing special, either.

By far the best version of this story. A bit sappy, of course, but very heart-warming and Alec Guinness makes quite the curmidgeon.
