Day #16: Favorite Book Turned Movie







Wanna know a secret? I've never read the book! Don't tell anyone.

  1. Hmm, what can I say other than that I didn't like the book particularly, and not the movie either... I know I'm a minority.

    1. To each their own! :D I love the movie so SO much that I'm almost afraid to read the book.

  3. Best movie ever. I've lost count of how many times I've watched it. "Mawage is what bwings us togever today." I die with laughter every time. So many great scenes.

    I had to read the book in 8th grade, but I don't remember much about it. I just bought it recently hoping for a re-read. We'll see if it stands up to the amazing movie.

  4. Ha Ha. I love the movie but, like you, haven't read the book. I have it sitting on my shelf though, so that counts for something, right? That said, I know several people who have read the book and they say the movie is much better.

  5. I love the movie. I started the book. Don't know why I didn't finish it, but there it sits, waiting for me to read it when I'd much rather watch the movie again.

  6. How's this - I didn't even know there was a book! And I"m a huge fan of the movie. My kids even quote it how... "Stop now, I mean it!" "Anybody want a peanut?" I wonder if the book is as satirical as the movie- I'm with you, I wouldn't want to read it now.

  8. I haven't seen the movie or read the book!

    But I have to say that Matilda by Roald Dahl was an outstanding book and they did a really great job with that movie as well!

  12. I've heard of the movie, though I didn't realise it was so old. I think I ought to get to it sooner than planned.

  14. I'm really amused by this movie, but I haven't ever read the book either. I probably should eventually!

  16. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie! And you know, the book isn't bad either. READ IT! :)

  17. I solemnly swear that I *will* get to the book sooner rather than later :) I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who hasn't read it! Now I'm curious how long the book was out before the movie was released. It seems a lot of us haven't read the book/didn't know there WAS a book. That's kinda crazy.
