Classic Books & Terrible Adaptations

Have you ever watched a literary adaptation that actually made you cringe? Flavorpill has compiled a list entitled, “The 10 Most Badly Bungled Classic-Book-to-Film Adaptations.” Some of them include The Scarlett Letter (1995), The Count of Monte Cristo (2002), and Beowulf (2007).

Here’s more from the article: “Hollywood tends to be particularly inept at adapting classic works of literature for the big screen. More often than not, some genius will decide that a timeless book needs to be ‘modernized’ to reach today’s audiences, or that those bummer downbeat endings must be fixed up.”

The video embedded above features the second trailer for Beowulf. What movies would you add to the list?
