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.
