I just re-watched this movie the other day. This is one of my favorite books of all time and I was so disappointed to see how much they had to change in the movie to allow for a wider (non SK fan) audience to relate to it.

They didn’t even use the right title and had to squeeze a couple of lines into the movie for it to make even a little bit of sense.

I love the book’s ending and was saddened to see it changed it in the movie. The fate of Ted and Carol were so much better.

I know, but "Anthony Hopkins"!!!! Good movie, not great, but good, considering.

It's one of my favourites from King and doesn't contain my favourite story from Hearts In Atlantis so have never had much interest.
