It may have been a kids' book, but Holes was brilliantly adapted to the screen (feelings about Shia not withstanding).

Coraline worked out pretty well too.

And James and the Giant Peach, though it's been ages since I've seen it.

Re: Jurassic Park.

I haven't read it in twenty years, but I seem to recall that the book had two T-Rex(es), the big one from the movie and a "baby" T-Rex running around. Wasn't the little T-Rex the most vicious dinosaur in the book? Even more than the raptors?

The Baby was the T-Rex that killed the second a--hole lawyer. The book did have several things that happened that was not in the movie though. Hammond was a jerk who deserved to die. Genero was an actual cool character, Grant was way more of a Badass then he was in the movie. Raptors were scarier in the book due to that whole hotel scene. But all in all, the movie was still a very well done adaptation of the book.

The Name of the Rose adaptation turned out better than I expected.  I also agree with the farker who mentioned The Lovely Bones.

I've heard that two books I love are being made into movies and I'm afraid.  "The Art of Racing In The Rain" and "I Know This Much Is True".  Please please please don't screw them up too badly, Hollywood.

That was a great movie adaptation even though they focused a bit more on the girlfriend than they did in the book.

Fun fact about the Slater sex scene:  the director told Valentina Vargas to go as realistic as possible before filming the scene, but he didn't let Christian Slater know about it because he wanted to catch a look of surprise.  Slater thought the scene he was filming was going to end when she started pulling up his shirt.  When she continued, the look of surprise and bewilderment on his face is genuine.  They left the entire take in the movie.

Second fun fact - in the original release you can see Slater's dick rubbing up against Vargas's crotch.
