  1. P.S. I Love You – Hillary Swank’s casting as Holly was so so wrong I just couldn’t move beyond it!

    I’ve heard that multiple times about My Sisters Keeper!

    One of my least favorites was Harry Potter Six. Oh my, it bothered me!

    I watched a movie based on Janette Oke’s first book – I can’t remember the title at the moment. But the little girl who turned 2 years old in the book was an 8 or 9 year old
    in the movie. I didn’t loathe it but I never wanted to watch any of the other movies in the series.

  4. I was surprisingly pleased with the movie of ‘The Help.’ I didn’t expect to like it since I enjoyed the book so much.

    The ones that come to mind for me are The Wizard of Oz and The Neverending Story. I read both of these books as an adult (reading them out loud to my daughters) and I was so taken with how fascinating and delightful the characters in the books are. They leave so much more to the scope of the imagination than do the movies. I was never a big fan especially of The Wizard of Oz movie, but became even less of a fan after having read the book!

  6. I have to say that any book turned into a movie by Nicholas Sparks leaves me with a depression hangover that lasts about a week. It doesn’t matter which movie it is either…all of them leave me a mess. I can only imagine if I had actually read the books too….that would be ugly. πŸ™‚

  7. My Sister’s Keeper. Bleh.

    1. Agreed. So disappointed in that one.

      Could not agree more! I wasn’t a huge fan of the book anyway- but still went to see the movie and it was so bad…helllooooooo- you can not change who dies!

  8. Dear John. Hated the movie.

  9. Does Twilight count? I hated the books and the messages that came out of it, so I hated to see the movie come out.

    On the other hand, I loved the book Ella Enchanted and thought the movie was great too. They don’t match up exactly, but it’s as if the movie producers knew that and didn’t try so hard. The movie was a different tone than the book. It was a cute and fun movie and a great book although they are different from each other.

  10. Haha, funny pin! πŸ™‚

    I’m the opposite way around, I love the MOVIE over the BOOK usually! Classic case- Pride and Prejudice (book) by Jane Austen! I LOVED THE MOVIE *but* when I had to read the book years ago for a high school English class, I HATED it! The conversations seemed so silly and like I just wasn’t into the writing. BUT the MOVIE was BEAUTIFUL! πŸ™‚

  11. I walked out on The Last of the Mohicans.
    Enough said.

  12. Okay, I have to agree with this after watching Beautiful Creatures last night. A great watch…for DVD. What’s that tell you?

  13. I’ve got nothing. But I feel this every time I watch a movie after I’ve read the book.

  14. I didn’t loathe it but the book version of Water for Elephants was so much better than the movie.

  15. The Last Air Bender. Didn’t read the book, never would based on the movie. It just wasn’t there for me. I went for my son’s sake. Wast of money.
