Are there any instances (IYO) where a movie is JUST as good, or better than the book?

I was so disappointed after I left seeing Angels and Demons last night....I read the book previously, and the movie was absolutely horrible.

The only movie/book combo that I have seen/read that met my expectations was Jurrasic Park....this is just me thinking quickly off the top of myhead...I'll see if I can think of anything else...

Discuss...

Bridge to Terabithia is a good example. It followed the book pretty much all the way through.
Time to Kill is another good example. The only thing that bothered me was how they made Mississippi look like we can't afford air conditioners! LOL

For my own examples I choose:

The 5 People You Meet in Heaven
A Walk to Remember
The Green Mile

Fight Club was a word for word transition from book to movie. give or take a few exceptions.
