One of my favorite films that was made based on a TV show was The Flintstones. I love that movie and I watch it whenever I see it on. I also grew up watching the cartoon plus the show where the Flintstones were toddlers.

Sex in the City. The series is the bomb... I watch them all the time on Style Channel, even if I see the same one over and over!

It would definitely be Sex and the City. I loved the series, I really liked the movies, but I hated the book:)

Thank you for the great giveaway!

StereoQueenBee said...

SATC definitely - the first one only though. I was not a fan of the second movie.

Jilleen said...

I am sorry, but my Brady days are going to come right out with this question - I am a Brad-mania and loved it when the two Brady movies came out in the 1990s. They were too funny.

Of course the adult in me says.....Sex in the City - loved the TV show and both movies!

Thanks for the great giveaway.

My favorite movie or movies based on a TV series is Star Trek. I loved the show and all of the movies. Thanks for this chance.


Unknown said...

My favorite movie based on a TV show isn't based on the entire show Saturday Night Live, but rather on a recurring skit. The skit; "The Roxbury Guys," the movie; "A Night at the Roxbury."
That movie makes me laugh until I cry EVERY TIME I see it. I know it's cheesy, but it's too funny!
