A Revelation

I’m sitting here reading about embarrassing mothers in literature, right? Just a regular article. And then I see something that leaves me like 😲. I’ll share.

There’s this movie. One that I imagine you will know as soon as I write the name of it. Mrs. Doubtfire. You know it. Sally Field. Robin Williams. Lots of laughs. But did you know it’s actually based on a book!? I definitely didn’t. I also didn’t expect it to be young adult. But yes, the movie was adapted from a book published in 1987.

Which leads me to today’s question. There are so many movies adapted from books nowadays that we can’t possibly know all of them. What are some of the movies you’ve enjoyed (or not) that you didn’t initially know were based off of books?

I think this one takes the top spot for me. There are others, but they’re not as well done or respected as this.
