did not like it

I broke my cardinal rule to never see a movie after i read a book bc the movie never lives up to the book...right? This time i saw the movie before i read the book. I smiled through the whole movie it was funny touching and very well done and i rated it one of my favorite movies of all time...right up there with Slumdog Millionare. I enjoyed it so much i decided to break my rule and read the book thinking it could only be better...Wrong! I could hardly recognise the book as the same one that inspired the movie...characters were sleezy, and the writing was not well done at all. I would say "inspired" is the operative word and very loosely at that. For once the movie did everything i would have expected from the made me think, laugh, cry and went away feeling good and wanting more. Forget the book and go see the movie
