I remember as kids, my mum and dad were out, they gave us money for pizza, we'd get a big pie with lotsa pepperoni and some coke cans, and played video games. Who says you need some exotic trip like having the Egyptian pyramids in the horizon to enjoy a night in like that? =D
What are some books or stories where the movie is better? Two that I can think of off the bat are Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me. Those were excellent films, and it's an odd coincidence that they're both from a collection of stephen king short stories.
