The Incredible Four, etc.

For some reason, this morning I'm thinking about all the times when the best TV/film adaptation of something, is actually called something else. Sometimes it's deliberate, but not always. For instance:

  • The best adaptation of The Fantastic Four was called The Incredibles.

  • The only good Mission: Impossible movie was called Sneakers.

  • The best Star Trek movie was called The Hunt For Red October.

  • Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy was made into a very cool TV series called Johnny Quest.


I'm sure there are lots of others, but those are the ones that come to mind right now.

And no, I don't know why this is on my mind today. It might have something to do with coffee.

Well, I like the version of Romeo and Juliet that was West Side Story, but I've not seen many other versions of it for comparison.

I feel so gay!

That one was definitely intentional. :) Sorta like saying "My Fair Lady" was "Pygmalion."
