To Bee or Not to Bee

The Secret Life of Bees opens today. Great book, but does that mean great movie? I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t judge a book by its movie”. There have been plenty of movies based on books that I have enjoyed immensely, though. The Notebook had me weeping as much through the film as the book and I can say the same about The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I saw both of those on TV years after reading the books, so maybe that makes a difference. The DaVinci Code had me captivated in book form…the movie? Not so much.

What about you?
Do you look forward to movies based on your favorite books or do you stay away?

Will you see the movie before or after reading the book?
Never - the movie can not compare!
I will see the movie if I enjoyed the book.
I will read the book if I enjoyed the movie.
