"Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending—the resolution of the drama—has been completely changed." W Magazine on the American remake of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, with NSFW (I know, I know, it's Saturday) picture of Rooney Mara as the girl. I haven't seen the forthcoming movie, obviously, but I already don't like it! Because I don't like change. Also, get off my lawn.

Its aggravating, because its what Hollywood always does - make the male protagonist more likeable, give the female protagonist more sex appeal, and make the ending more commercial (happier and/or less violent).

Guess I thought it would be different this time since the book has been SO popular. But I liked the original ending and I can kind of guess where this one is going to go.

Also, and unspoilery, I didn't realize the promiscuity was really an issue in this book...? I hope this doesn't mean a character I really liked is being taken out.
