Of course you don't have to agree with me one bit, but thought I'd share the only two movies that I think were successful in translating the source book, more or less.It was awful. Movies are never as good as the books (NO MOVIE HAS EVER BEEN SUCCESSFUL AT BEING AS GOOD AS OR EVEN EQUAL TO THE BOOK AND I WILL DIE ON THIS HILL), but that movie in particular...👀😵

Fight Club - Even the author, Chuck Pahluniuk said it intimidated him how it was actually better (paraphrasing). I'm not sure about it being better, but Fincher turned it into an amazing movie.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - (Hunter S. Thompson) Pretty spot on on translation from the book, with some parts omitted from the movie. And a fun original feeling movie.
Have you seen "Stranger than Fiction" with Will Ferrell? That's one of his best roles, imo.Any comedy movie with Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen as the main characters.
I want gouge my eyes out after five minutes.
Will Ferrell is good mainly when he isn't acting like a literal man-child in every movie I see him in.Have you seen "Stranger than Fiction" with Will Ferrell? That's one of his best roles, imo.
Seth Rogen was good in "Freaks and Geeks".
Yes, it was not very happy or funny. I like more rom com type stuff like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Then again I laughed hard at Mr. & Mrs. Smith- I was one of the very few if only in the theater that found it hilarious a lot of the time.Notebook... Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are great at acting and i'm not really having problem with romance movies but it just didn't click with me.
A Walk To Remember -- which I actually enjoy so it's sad you don't like it.The Notebook and a lot of the movies suggested in this thread already.
Just thought of another. Mandy Moore is in it. She is dying of cancer. Takes place in September? Stupid movie, forgot the title.
