Summary and Rank
So your saying, "Why do you need a summary for the movie, it's almost the
same as the book". Well the key word is almost. Below is a summary
of the movie Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Differences between
the book and the movie are listed as well. A 'rank' of the movie from the scale
of 1-20 (1 being the best) is also given.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE BOOK AND MOVIE
-In the 2nd Harry Potter book it was a pudding that Dobby dropped on the floor. In the movie Dobby drops a cake on Mrs. Masonís head.
-In the movie, Uncle Vernon falls out the window as he is trying to stop Harry from escaping. In the book, he does not fall out the window.
-Unlike the book, there is no de-gnoming in the movie.
-In the movie, Harry does not give his free books, which he received from Lockhart, to Ginny.
-In the movie, Lockhart does not announce that he is the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher while he is in Flourish and Blotts.
-There is no brawl between Mr. Weasley and Lucious Malfoy in the movie.
-In the movie, Ron does not engage the Invisibility booster until after the Ford Anglia had risen several feet into the air.
-Warner Bros. couldnít resist adding a bit more Hollywood to the film by adding the scene in which Harry is dangling from the car above the Hogwarts Express.

-In the movie, Ron does not say why he is scared of spiders.

she is petrified.
-In the book, Professor Binns tells the students about the Chamber of Secrets. Yet in the movie Professor McGonagall is the one that tells them.
-In the book, Moste Potente Potions is in the Restricted section. Yet in the movie, Hermione pulls it from a library shelf as if it is an ordinary book.
