Yesterday my friend and I went to the movies (had to check out the new theater with the reclining leather seats!), where we saw One for the Money (based on the book by Janet Evanovich).
The book was a great, action packed, fun read, and I loved it, but was heading into the movie concerned they wouldn't do the book justice. I have to say I was pleased with what they did (my friend who hadn't read the book loved it, and I sent the book home with her to read). While I still think the book was better (they almost always are!), they did a good job with it, and the casting was excellent.
In addition, I was able to see the trailer for Hunger Games (just read the books over Christmas), and was impressed with what I saw (not sure if I'll go to the theater for it, though-- I really do prefer to watch in the comfort of home, although the reclining seats were nice. It felt odd to be in them in the theater, though).
Have you seen any good movies based on books you loved? Any special movies you are looking forward to seeing? Share below!
