Worst Movies Based on Books

Note that this is not the same as Worst Movies based on GOOD books. I remove the word Good, because there are bad books with bad movies as well

The Top Ten

1 Twilight

Stupid hatebase

Do I really need to explain? - SpectralOwl

2 The Cat In the Hat

Looks like a man in a bootleg sylvester the cat costume with an annoying orange style of putting faces on inanimate objects - SpectralOwl

3 Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

This is WAY too different from the original - SpectralOwl

4 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

This movie follows the beloved children's book with a few differences. Or at least, that's what the first 15-20 minutes are about. - SpectralOwl

5 The Lorax

Let it DIE let it Die, let it shrivel up and- Come on, who's with me, eh?



I miss January 2017 - SpectralOwl

6 Diary of a Wimpy Kid

While the book was funny, this was actually kinda sad to see the protagonist get bad luck like this on the big screen. - SpectralOwl

7 New Moon
8 Eragon
9 Carrie (2013)
10 A Wrinkle in Time

They might as well have DESTROYED Oprah because of this! It's a shameful parody of my favorite sci-fi disney movie, Tomorrowland, and shamefully represents it. Save your money on something that MATTERS.

The Contenders

11 The Golden Compass
12 Inkheart
13 The Dark Tower
14 The Seeker: The Dark is Rising
15 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Crappy movie!

16 Dear Dumb Diary

My sister and I watched this because she loved the book. I was PISSED OFF! The main protagonist, Jamie, is such a full of herself Mary-Sue, and the movie ITSELF was crappy, I'm surprised Nostalgia Critic didn't review this movie yet.

17 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
