Have you ever seen a movie that you thought was based on a novel or short story and it turned out it was totally different and sucked? Which one?

I watched Awake last night and I thought it was going to be based off the Stephen King short story "Autopsy Room Four" which is about a man who comes awake while he is being laid out for an autopsy and realises he must show them he isn't really dead. It was a totally different plot and annoyed me very much, because the summary for the movie was "A surgical patient becomes alert but paralysed during his procedure" and I assumed it might be a slight variation of the short story.

Totally different. Totally sucked.
