Book vs. Movie

Yesterday was my 20th Book v. Movie  post and a comment by Kathy got me thinking.  She mentioned that she wasn’t surprised that I liked the book better than the movie.  As book lovers isn’t that generally true?  So, I decided to look through my posts.  Of the 20, 14 were clearly the book, 4 were clearly the movie and 2 were so close that if I allowed myself to call a tie I probably would have.

Then I got to thinking about a few of my favorite movies, the ones where I’ve read the book too, but clearly adore the movie more.

What are some of your favorite movies that you love more than the book so I can add them to my watch list?
