A lot of really excellent books that are translated into movies unfortunately don't turn out so well these days, but this was not the case with Water for Elephants. I think the adaptation was brought to life extremely well, & that the two leads Reese and Robert did a good job at bringing the characters to life, but without a doubt the elephant Rosie was my favorite character & stole the show. remember reading & rating this book 5 stars. I think this film ended up being pretty good.

If a director can make someone like me cry, it's a winner!! Rob and Resse deliver. Resse can play any character & Rob is Proof that twilight didn't ruin his career. He can really bend his acting. Would love to see him do a movie in his real voice..

I saw magazine photos of the actors with the elephant chained! Unless it's fun loving & does not require making the animals work hard, I usually do not agree with any movie involving acting that includes animals. Some movies that are funny seem fine with domesticated animals. And there are some movies that take good care of wild animals on set. But normally I do not like seeing any movie involving big animals, especially horses, elephants or any wild animals. Its sad to watch at times.
