So I'm about two thirds of the way through Peter Benchley's Jaws. I've never read it until now even though I've always loved the movie. So far, the book goes off on so many tangents regarding the mafia and an affair between two of the characters and many of the characters are such s***bags that you're actually rooting for the shark. The film improves on it so much. So tell me, folks...which movies have you seen that you thought were better than the book they were based on? I know it's rare, since 9 times out of 10 the book usually is superior, but there are the exceptions to the rule.
