A Movie I'm Looking Forward To, But...

I haven't read the book yet. Should I read the book first, then see the movie? Or wait for the movie, and read the book afterwards?

Anyone heard if/how the movie and book differ?

The man told me the premise to this one, and being that he's prejudiced against everything he doesn't agree with, he's already dubbed it a mistake. *eyeroll*

His problem is the hero meets his wife as a young girl. He says this is no better than pedifilia in concept. Is he right? I doubt it, he just loves to think he is.

I'm not sure yet. There can be issues if it's not done tastefully, and respectfully. I mean, they meet. Fine. He's not physically stalking her, right? (The man's contention)

Personally, I think I'd read the book over the movie. Movies take liberties for length and circumstance that are better conveyed in books. The only exception I've seen has been LOTR.
