As a book lover, you know there's nothing worse than waiting in anticipation for a movie adaptation of your favorite book, only to discover that they totally botched it. To be fair, it's generally known that we book lovers will never be truly happy with a movie until they start making them 20 hours long and a perfect line by line adaptation of the books. But at least there is usually something we can enjoy from most movie adaptations of books. Unfortunately, some are so bad that there's not a single redeemable quality to hold on to.
A horrible movie doesn't just mean that you'll never get to see your favorite moments acted out to perfection just like you've imagined in your head, but it also usually means that you'll never get the chance to see the sequel. A bad adaptation is a lose-lose all around, and leaves us wishing it never had been made. At least then the images in our heads wouldn't be tainted, and then we could dream that a better studio might pick it up and give it the attention it deserves.
We recently asked book lovers on our Facebook page what they felt the worse movie adaptations ever made were, and these are their answers.
