Most Anticipated Scene to See in Movie Format?

Post by TangledinText » 28 Aug 2015, 10:08

It seems to me that the movie is advertising a much more energetic story line than what I imagined in the book, but then again a soundtrack to your daily life would make any boring life seem pretty epic.

I'm most excited to see the bonding of the characters on the road trip with the flipping of the van, the peeing in the bottle, and most importantly the calculating how many seconds their pit stop can be and what everyone is responsible for grabbing in the convenience store.

What scene are you most excited to play out in the movie?

The road trip was without a doubt the best part of the whole book, so that's the parts I want to see the most. Especially the cow scene :)

I have not seen the movie yet but I really really want to! I'm excited to see the whole revenge scene :)

I was most excited to see the road trip scene. I honestly decided to see the movie when the credits showed that the cow almost getting hit scene would happen. Random I know but there's always that one little detail in every book where I need in a movie to make me satisfied with the whole endeavor.

The scene I was most excited to see was the road trip; to be specific the scene where Ben can't seem to hold his bladder so he had to pee in a beer bottle (can in the movie) just because that part of the book had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. I also really hoped they would include or mention the black santa collection just because I thought it was so random but sooo freaking cool (AND THEY DID YAY!)

I liked the ending of the book the best. When they talk about the cracks being how you can really see people - I learned a lot from that scene, actually, about putting people on pedestals and why not to do it.

I also think that that's the dramatic centerpoint of the novel, so it should be the most interesting scene to see in the movie (because I still haven't watched the movie yet).

Obviously the movie has been out for awhile, but when I first saw it I was rather disappointed. This is mainly because they cut my favorite part of the book short, which is when Margo gets revenge on all her friends AND when her and Quentin break into SeaWorld, which they completely cut out!

I really wanted to see the scene at Seaworld. And also the excitement of the road trip. They didn't include the former one but yeah I am happy with the movie overall :)
