Audience Reviews for The Wind in the Willows

    Imaginative certainly but I have a gripe with the writer/director/actor messing around with Grahame's original story and adding silly things like a dog food factory. Should have stuck with the original novel and would have made the whole thing more magical rather than saturated Python for kids. The cast are all good though, with particular credit to Coogan and Sher. A missed opportunity.
