    Films that are better than the book

    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.

    I really enjoyed the book, but I loved the film too. Same same but different.

    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.
    Or would you like to swing on a star?
