20 Book-To-Movie Adaptations That Shouldn't Have Been Made According to MovieWeb

"There have been a number of widely successful films that were based on beloved books. Not only do they have a built-in fan base, but they allow filmmakers to bring out elements in the story that don't shine as vibrantly on paper. This can take the form of bringing unique world building elements to life or exploring side characters that didn't have the room to get fully fleshed out in the book. However, not all book-to-movie adaptations can be winners. Some miss what made the book so special, while others highlight glaring flaws of the original works that are harder to ignore on a big screen. While Hollywood will continue to make adaptations, perhaps they will learn from past duds that didn't quite connect with audiences. Here are 20 book-to-movie adaptations that shouldn't have been made." - movieweb.com
