Heyy. I expected much more of the movie after reading the book. The book had way more elements than the movie. Many funny clips that made the book were eliminated. And the whole entire (Important but Minor) role of Saxonberg and the whole point of the story outline. I did like Lauren Bacall's work as Mrs.BEF since she really portrayed the right attitude. They sort of mixed up the events orders and the characters book descriptions(attitudes,appearance etc.) well it wasn't horrible. The only thing that was portrayed better in the movie was "Angel"(i cant spoil it so no more details :). They also really rushed events into one another too fast. Also they added parts that made no sense. Certain areas were better than others by much. Watch the movie and see what i mean but also read the book too! ENJOY!~

-MGME :)
