Gretl Von Trapp from the original "The Sound of Music" movie was left "mystified and disappointed" after last night's live remake on NBC ... and says Carrie Underwood TOTALLY BOMBED!!

Gretl a.k.a. Kym Karath met up with former co-star Charmian Carr (Liesl Von Trapp) to watch the special last night ... but their excitement deflated once "Sound" started.

During the special Kym tweeted, "Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer" ... then followed up by saying, "Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch."

That's when Karath kicked things up a notch by roasting Underwood's performance adding, "Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong."

For what it's worth ... the special brought in HUGE ratings for NBC with 18.5 million viewers.

Get over yourself, and be supportive, this ROCKED last night, so good to watch a show without cursing and violence.

What a lamebrain, she actually thought her opinion matters, this woman is not the script writer/auther of the MOVIE!

It wasn't even a remake of the movie! The director even said it was to be a remake of the stage show, so clearly it would be different from the movie she originally did. Get over yourself woman.

With over 14 million viewers and breaking records for NBC, this persons opinion doesn't have much validity, except maybe for herself. I would like to have see how the original cast would have done with a LIVE three hour performance.

Hey you nasty hag, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Thos is a play NOT a movie. I thought that Carrie Underwood was perfection. Ppl like this woman are just so nasty and mean. So ugly, really.

They are so right! Carrie Underwood has a beautiful voices, but her acting was not good. I wouldn't say terrible, but it was bad.

On another note, I hated the line up of the songs. Everyone knows that My Favorite Things is sung when the kids were afraid of the rain and Do Re Mi song was sung outside while the kids where wearing their curtain clothes. This was just all wrong!!!

was Kristian Chenowith even considered? She certainly has the chops and the resume to back it up.

Wow, everyone is entitled to their opinion....just look at rob "i screwed a minor at the democratic convention AND sang and danced at one of the worst oscar openings of all times" lowe's nasty comments. OR Taylor Armstrong, a "d". List at best celebutard who owns her minimal fame to no talent other thanhustling cash cow men and getting endless plastic surgery talking about the bastardized show. You two havent been worked over the coals enough. Y the media to not play nice? Carrie isnt known to be an actress but she can sing and i certainly dont know many "stars" who could pull off a 3 hour performance as she did. It was an enjoyable holiday presentation and everybody should just enjoy.

I thought they did a fantastic job! How many people would even attempt to do a LIVE show? Not those three that are busy critiquing. How mean and hateful. How old are they? Acting like jealous children.

I'm a diehard fan of the movie and when I heard Carrie Underwood was the lead, no thank you. Not a Carrie fan at all. Now Steven Moyer, love him! But I just didn't care to watch.

Stephen Moyer was the good part of it? The kids were good. I like Moyer but he was overacting! She sounds a little jealous and bitter (not that Carrie was a decent actress at all but...)
