Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

As I previously wrote, I really enjoyed the book Bringing Down the House about the card counting MIT students. I watched the movie "21" last night that was based on the book. I was really excited to see the movie since I loved the book. I was so disappointed by the movie though! I thought the book read like a movie so if they just followed the book it would have made a great movie. The movie was sooo different! Pretty much the only thing that stayed true to the book was that there was a team of MIT students who counted cards. Almost everything else was changed. The movie wasn't very good and I didn't care about any of the characters since I knew the plot in the movie wasn't what happened in real life.

I loved the book and walked out of the theater at the movie. Can't remember the last time I had walked out of a movie prior to that one.
