I actually didn't think it was too bad. It wasn't good, really, but this one has such a bad rep that by the time I watched it I was convinced that I was in for a couple of hours of pure sh!t. But I enjoyed myself. Ultimately, I didn't care for the book. Maybe that's why the movie didn't bother me so much; I wasn't expecting much, and I got a little more than I expected; good performances from the four leads and decent effects. I certainly would not rank it as the worst King movie I've ever seen, even if it would be in the bottom ten.
