The movie had a couple differences than the book. Some of the characters did not appear in the movie as much as they did in the book. In the Movie the Socs were from the South instead of the West. Ponyboy doesn't smoke as much in the movie as they said so in the book. In the movie, Dallys and Sodapop's hair were brown instead of blonde. During the movies, they sat on chairs and walked home. In the book, they sat on blankets and drove home in a car. In the book, Ponyboy and Johnny sleep in the lot looking at the stars. In the movie, they slept in the woods looking at the stars. When Ponyboy comes home around 2:00am, Darry slaps him across the face. In the movie, Darry pushes Ponyboy and he falls over a chair. When Dally takes them out to eat, Johnny and Ponyboy gobble their food down. In the movie, Johnny drops his burger. In the movie, When Johnny and Darry are in the hospital, Ponyboy doesn't feel very well.

Thanks for the feedback!
A few similarities between the movie and book are that the movie still has the complete Greaser gang (Ponyboy, Johnny, Sodapop, Darry, Dally, Two-Bit, and Steve) and also Jo…hnny and Dally still die in the movie but the movie begins with Johnny and Pony following Dally around town.when johnny kills bob and the rumble Now a few differences are that they dont have the court scene, Darry doesn't slap Pony he pushes him down; Pony isn't sick after Johnny and Dally die; the movie doesn't mention Mickey Mouse, (Soda's horse); Sodapop and Dally aren't blonds like they are in the book, instead they are brunettes; the church that Ponyboy and Johnny run away to isn't on a hill; when the church catches on fire pony and johnny doesn't save the kids in a hall way; randy doesn't visit Ponyboy after the rumble the book is a lot better than the movie because there is no detail left out and in the movie there's a lot . I have like 37 differences 1 is that the movie never mentions sodapops girl friend. They don't do acrobatic stuff off the porch. Ponyboy didn't fall asleep on Johnny's lap while riding the train. In the book Soda gives Ponyboy money (a check) Well in the book he didn't. Johnny never made a joke about Jerry about how fat he was. They mention that Marcia was from the south side instead of west side. At the beggining of the movie they never chased after those kids and picked on them in the book. Also the book was written in ponyboy's perspective and the movie was not the movie was written in everyone's perspective.
Books and movies are both written. * when watching a movie you can see and hear the details, where as when reading a book you are able to imagine them, and create the pic…tures in your head. * While writing a book the author only has to imagine it and write it down, but when making a movie the director, producer, and screenplay writer gave to work together to create the scenes, make the special effects, and of course find the perfect actors/ actresses for each major and minor roles. * There is also a considerably more amount of money involved in making a movie. you have to make the scenes, hire the actor, pay the workers, directors, producers, buy the advertisements pay for the reels that the movies are made on, and last but not least they either have to make their own story, or buy the rights from the original author of the story they decide to use.
You read a book and you watch a movie. A movie that derives from a book is usually a bit different than the book itself.
Besides the obvious , movies condense books for time and economic reasons. The movie may also contain scenes that are not in the book. This is done for several reasons which i…nclude the idea that an addition to the movie may enhance the story.
at the beginning of the movie it starts by showing that ponyboy is writing the outsiders ......... report............ In the book Ponyboy is talkin( narrator)
If you have read the book, the differences are very obvious. I personally dislike the movie because it leaves out some very important scenes and most of the rest were cu…t short and modified to the degree where the movie was extremely loosely based on the book. If you really want to see the differences, read the book then watch the movie. Things are usually better that way, anyways.
The Outsiders movie and The Outsiders book are both alike and different in many ways. The movie adaptation was made in 1983. The book was first published in the 1967. One …way is that the book starts off with Ponyboy leaving the movie theaters, while the movie starts off with him walking through town with Johny and Dally. Another is that the book is in first person point of view. The movie isn't narrated, so it is not in first person point of view. Also, in the book, Sodapop and Dally are supposed to be blonde, but in the movie they are both brunettes. In the movie, the church wasn't on a hill. In the book, the church was on the top of a hill in Windrixville. Even though the book and movie are different, they are alike in many ways as well. The movie has all of Pony's gang members, Soda, Darry, Johny, Dally, Two-bit, Steve, and Pony, just like the book. Both Dally and Johny die in both the movie and the book.
johnny killed bob they ran away to the church fo five days ponyboy reiceved a letter from Soda Dally asked for a "cancer stick" the peom (stay gold) … Johnny's dieing words (stay golden) Dallys death the fight between sodapop darry and ponyboy (ending in an agreement not to fight)
they are both retarted
Similarities between the book "the outsiders" and the movie is , well their names are the same (ponyboy,dally,darry,sodapop,two-bit,steve,bob.cherry,marcia,randy, johnny Ext.)… And also johnny was killed by the burning church and the famous words he stated("Stay Gold PonyBoy, Stay Gold") were still the last and final words he spoken to ponyboy. also he was described in the book the "'puppy" or the smallest of the greasers , he also was the smallest in the movie. they described all the characters in the book as they looked in the movie. Dally was as crazy as he was decribed and Mean heartedas still strict toward ponyboy, johnny was a murderer and a hero because he killed bob, but saved ponyboy in the act, two bit was the joker of the group, and cherry was kind of like a spy for the greasers, and ext.
Oh you read the outsiders that is a really exciting book. I'm not exactly sure, but I don't think Randy visited Ponyboy. Another thing is i don't know if they mentioned rain, …but in the movie while they were fighting it was raining.
The book was different from the movie because the movie had deleted scenarios from the book. However, in the full version, they did a pretty good job of being faithful to the …book. Another difference was the character's apperance. In the book it said that Dallas Winston had blonde hair. in the movie, Dally appeared to have dark brown hair. In the book, it also didn't describe that Johnny was of a different race (darker in skin tone). One last difference was that the movie has much less detail then the book. In the book it described how Ponyboy felt about everything. In the movie everything just went fast and it didnt really talk about the way Ponyboy felt.
I've seen both the movie and read the book. As with any book that's made into a movie, there are many parts cut out to make the movie shorter
maybe you should read the book and watch the movie?
They are pretty much exactly the same. The ORIGINAL movie The Outsiders leaves out many parts from the book, but the EXTENDED edition in The Outsiders has EVERYTHING from the… book! Be sure to watch the extended edition!
To truly answer this question would take more time than anyone should bother with, but I can give the overall differences: Missing from the movie was the character of Patrick… Hockstetter, as well as a few more minor characters, and the history of the monster in the town of Derry. In the movie, Beverly didn't have sex with the boys in the tunnels on their way out after they believed they killed the monster when they were 12 (early). The character of Beverly Marsh in the book was a very tough tomboyish girl who didn't take crap from anyone (except her father). In the movie, she was played by actresses who portrayed her as very meek, both in her 12 year old and adult years.The movie left out the entire part of the book when they were in the "macrospace" and mentally fighting the monster. In the movie this was simply portrayed as them being hypnotized by the monster. In the movie, the 12 year old group never made it to the "lair of it". They met up with Pennywise in the cellars in some random place.No mention of the Turtle in the movie.Many interactions with Henry were left out of the movie. There are so many more differences, but I think I hit on most of the ones that really took away important context from the movie version.
The movie is really bad, the book, sublime.
