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

Do I really need to explain? - SpectralOwl

2 The Cat In the Hat The Cat In the Hat Product Image

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 Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Product Image

This is WAY too different from the original - SpectralOwl

4 The Lorax The Lorax Product Image

Oh God do I hate this movie. This is right there with the Angry Birds Movie Possibly worse. No thought and no care put into this movie. Just pure phoned in Mess. It Just feels like excuse to promote a lot of advertising and Some REALLY HORRIBLE songs.

When I watched this movie at the end I said to myself "is it too late to get that alien invasion form Transformers dark of the moon to destroy the City of THneedville.

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

Nobody

YOU GREEDY DIRTBAG

I miss January 2017 - SpectralOwl

5 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Product Image

I just really HATE this movie!

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

6 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Diary of a Wimpy Kid Product Image

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 New Moon Product Image
8 Eragon Eragon Product Image

Best book ever, worst movie ever 😡

9 Carrie (2013) Carrie (2013) Product Image
10 A Wrinkle in Time A Wrinkle in Time Product Image

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.

11 The Golden Compass The Golden Compass Product Image
12 Dear Dumb Diary Dear Dumb Diary Product Image

Wait? They made a movie based on that series? - PerfectImpulseX

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.

He shouldn't, because he is supposed to review movies that are over 10 years old. - Sprightly
