There aren't too many of these but I watched one last night. "Hi - fidelity" with John Cusack. I had read the book a few years ago and the ending had annoyed me. I found it trite and contrived but in the movie which I enjoyed I felt the story flowed much better. What makes this more impressive is the fact that I am a Brit talking about the Americanization of a British Book.
Exactly my thoughts BOF. Jack Black et al really bring it to life.
"Changes and progress very rarely are gifts from above. They come out of struggles from below."
I really enjoyed the book, but I loved the film too. Same same but different.Originally Posted by Just another BOF
A similar case for me is Breakfast At Tiffany's. Loved the book and loved the film, even though the two are completely different in tone.
