What is your favorite movie based on a book?

Often movies based on books are terrible but there are exceptions to every rule. Have you seen a movie that you thought either really did the book(s) justice, I'm thinking Lord of the Rings here myself, or was better than the book (for me that is A Walk to Remember)?

  • The Notebook. I thought the book was just terrible, but the movie was pretty good.

  • To Kill A Mockingbird was good. One of the few that were almost as good as the book in terms of casting and following the story.

  • The Shining, OMG, both are EXCELLENT. Also, Bridges of Madison County, both had me bawling my eyes out.

  • Octobersmom, I have to agree. Another book that I hadn't thought of would be Message In A Bottle.

  • The Princess Bride and Stardust are two of my favorites. The books are better, of course, but I adore the movies almost as much.

  • The Shawshank Redemption. It's a short story, but that is the one instance where I like the movie better than the book.
