Cat's Best Book-to-Movie Adaptation

Gary Sinise and John Lithgow are loyal to Steinbeck's book.

Cat's Worst Book-to-Movie Adaptation

Seriously? Demi Moore as Hester Prynne actually rides into the sunset with Dimmesdale. I don't think Hollywood gets Hawthorne.

I thought The Horse Whisperer was a pretty good adaptation. I didn't like the book, but I liked the movie. On the flip side, there are so many poor adaptations of great books -- I hardly know where to begin.

Jen H.,
I actually saw the Horse Whisperer without reading the book, but it's interesting about liking the movie over the book. I wonder if we'll like Cormac McCarthy's The Road movie more than the book? I struggled through that book.
