The Outsiders Differences Between Book And Movie

Satisfactory Essays
The book and the movie of ¨The Outsiders¨ are generally the same but differs at some of the parts. As books and movies usually do, they both share the same same story line and the general idea. Nonetheless, the differences are quite large.

Both the book and the movie are very similar, or else it wouldn't be much of a point to make a movie for a book.
For instance, the both have Johnny killing Bob while they were drowning Ponyboy. Although it, like the book, doesn't go into great detail about it.Another thing that they kept the same was when Dally shows up the get them while they were staying at the abandoned church.
And it keeps the part when Dally was speeding to the restaurant. Although they both have many similarities they also have many differences.

Especially when it comes to the part when Sandy, his girlfriend turns him down. But in the movie, Sodapop is barely mentioned and does not play a big role. It doesn't even mention anything about Sandy or Sodapop's horse, Mickey Mouse.

Another big difference is about Johnny's mom at the hospital.In the book, the nurse comes in and tells Johnny that his mom is here to see him, and he tells them he does not want to see her.And, as Dally and Ponyboy are leaving, it shows her yelling at the nurse about how she wants to see him.In the movie it only mentions his mom at the hospital, with the nurse coming in and and telling Johnny that his mom was there.Although it was a small detail, it was a big difference.

The ¨Outsiders¨ book and movie are the same in the story line, but the details differ at times.But the similarities are more common than the differences, so it was an all in all good story.Even though adding a bit more Sodapop would make it a bit sweeter.The differences just show how books and movies will just never be the

    Bob, I heard you were trying to decide if you wanted to read the book Outsiders, or watch the movie. I have both read the book and watched the movie. Coming to a conclusion on which is better, I would say that the book is better by far. One reason I like the book more than the movie is that the movie leaves out some very important scenes out of the plot. For example, one very important part left out by the movie is the very beginning of the story, when the main character has something traumatising…

    The Outsider book and movie differences The Outsiders book and movie are similar to eachother. The movie basically takes everything straight from the book, but movie leaves out a couple scenes and many other important things. The way the characters were described and the relationships between them was off in the movie. In the book Dally and Soda were blonds, but in the movie all the greasers were brunettes. You don't get to know the characters very well in the movie and the tention between Darry…

    1967, The Outsiders book was published by S.E. Hinton. Also in 1983, The Outsiders movie was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The book is fiction; specifically young adult fiction. The book and the movie were very different from one another. The book was a lot better in giving more details and getting to know what Ponyboy is thinking. It was easier to be able to comprehend what was going on and why the characters were making those decisions. One difference from the movie and the book is that,…

    The movie itself is very much different from the book. The story was also changed with some of the plot. The movie and the book are both still following the same story line. Along with the same ending. This is what I have noticed between the movie and the book. Number one is that the old man was cruel to the young man. Unlike in the book where it says and I quote “The old man had never wronged me”. That was huge difference. This change also gave him a different reason to kill the old man. That was…

    However, The Outsiders movie was very interesting, the novel portrayed the story line better in my opinion. For one the novel is more detailed such as when Johnny got jumped by Bob and three of his Soc friends, but the movie does not. Also, the novel describes in chapter 4 page 53 that there is a swimming pool at the park but they movie shows nothing about there being a pool there. In addition, the novel also states when Dallas Winston takes Ponyboy and Johnny to Dairy Queen they sit in the Restaurant…

    There is quite a few differences between the book and movie The Outsiders. The book is written by S.E. Hinton. We have been reading the outsiders and we were wondering which was better the movie or the book. The book and movie are both easy to relate to because Ponyboy is our age and most of the characters are young. I think the three characters are Sodapop,Ponyboy,and Two bit. In the book I pictured them as these tough looking kids but when I saw the movie they actually don’t look as tough as…

    adventure both in the movie and book. Although differences may apply they are both fascinating. Imagine a community where your feelings are tucked away from a pill? Both in the movie and the book Jonas was skipped during the ceremony of the twelve. Jonas was frightened and embarrassed and thought he wasn’t good enough to get selected to do anything. This is a pretty big key in the book because this is the time Jonas becomes the receiver of memory. Towards the end of the movie, there was a pretty significant…
