Hollywood has gotten lazy, so these days, movie studios either remake movies, produce sequels to blockbusters, or adapt popular books into movies. Of the latter, many of these films don’t do justice to the original material, but a special, rare few actually improve upon the book and the story translates better to the screen.

In NYC, it often tends to be two out of three. “The Dating Game: Finding The Perfect Apartment” breaks down the stats and points out the similarities between apartment hunting and dude hunting.
