19 Films That Are Bad Adaptations, But Are Still Pretty Great Movies

“A lot of people like the movie, but it only resembles the book for the first third. The main protagonist in the movie is nothing like the main protagonist in the book.”

“I like to describe it as a great Count of Monte Cristo-flavored swashbuckler but it’s not a good adaptation of the novel. Admittedly, you’d need three or four 10-episode seasons to do the full story justice so I’ll never expect a movie adaptation to be able to do it all. But my gripe with the 2002 version is that it ends in a way that throws out the entire point of Dumas’ novel.”

“It remains both my favorite movie and my favorite book, and people are always baffled that I can separate the two.”
