Movie Adaptions I Enjoyed More Than Their Books

I can't believe it either!
  1. What's Your Number?
    Aka. 'Twenty Times A Lady' by Karyn Bosnak. The book was pretty bland, but the movie had a fuzzy Chris Evans, and that's really all I ask for.
  2. Savages
    Aka. 'Savages' by Don Winslow. Don't get me wrong, the book is GREAT; but the movie did an amazing job portraying the relationship between Chon and Ben, which is the heart of the story.
  3. The Devil Wears Prada
    Aka. 'The Devil Wears Prada' by Lauren Weisberger.. I may be totally alone in this, but I found the main character so unlikable, that I gave up the book a third into it. The movie, however, always entertains.
  4. The Social Network
    Aka. 'The Accidental Billionaires' by Ben Mezrich. This really isn't a fair comparison, but the book has nothing on the movie; which is a cinematic masterpiece and why David Fincher owes me an apology.
  5. Whip It
    Aka. 'Whip It' by Shauna Cross. The book is fine, you can take it or leave it. But the movie, oh man, I just love it so much. One of my favorite coming-of-age films ever.
  6. BONUS: An adaptation so bad it felt like a personal attack:
  7. One For the Money
    The books had so much potential, and you've probably never heard of this movie. Better cast and better use of source material could have delivered a solid action comedy. (Book series by Janet Evanovich.)
