Two Thumbs Down

Way down.

I just finished "Confessions of a Shopaholic". I have read all the Shopaholic books (Sophie Kinsella) and have loved all of them.
I was really looking forward to watching the movie tonight but was so disappointed!

The movie is NOTHING like the book! Makes me mad when Hollywood takes a perfectly good story and screws it up! The movie takes place in an entire different country as the book for goodness sakes!

The only good point was Joan Cusack and John Goodman as Rebecca's parents. They weren't exactly the same as the parents in the book, but I enjoy both of those actors.

"My Sister's Keeper" comes out in the theaters soon and I did want to see that. Now, I'm not sure.

What books to movies have disappointed you?


  1. "What books to movies have disappointed you?"

    All of them. I understand the necessity of shortening books, and I understand the short attention span of some movie viewers, but I rarely enjoy a movie that was made from a book I loved.

    Have you read The Undomestic Goddess, also by Sophie Kinsella?

  2. Ami,
    I have read The Undomestic Goddess and thought it was really good! All of Sophie Kinsella's books make me laugh out loud!

  3. I thought the DaVinci book was way better than the movie. I'm not looking forward to the Angels and Demons movie.


  4. Don't see My Sister's Keeper!!! SUCH a disappointment after that great book!


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
