This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Becky is from England and lives in London. She is American and lives in New York City.
   Becky's hair is brown. She is a redhead.
   Becky's parents tell her she needs to save more money. They are bad with money themselves and spend their retirement savings on a Recreational Vehicle.
   Suze and Tarquin start a relationship slowly. There are in a serious relationship from the start.
   Becky is the lone bridesmaid at Suze and Tarquin's wedding. There are many.
   Becky's scarf is blue and gray. It is green.
   This didn't happen. Luke takes Becky to Miami.
   Becky works at Successful Saving magazine from the beginning of the story. She is working for a gardening magazine and then gets an interview at Successful Saving.
   Luke owns his own PR firm. Becky's boss is Phillip. He is the boss at Successful Saving magazine. He is Becky's boss.
   Alicia Billington works at Luke's PR firm. She works at a fashion magazine where Becky had wanted to work.
   Becky goes on the morning TV show to talk about an article she wrote about the bank's shady dealings with her neighbors. She goes with Luke to talk about The Girl With the Green Scarf.
   Derek Smeath is polite and works out a deal with Becky in the end to pay off her credit card debt. He is the villain and wants to embarrass Becky on live TV.
   In the book, pounds and pence are used, since the book is set in the United Kingdom. In the movie, dollars and cents are used, since the film is set in New York City of the United States of America.
   Luke hears Becky ask for twenty pounds, and stops the whole Press Conference just so he can hand a twenty pound note to her, once she has made up a story of needing the money to buy a present for her aunt who is in hospital. Her credit card is declined, so Rebecca goes to a hot dog stand and offers to buy all the hot dogs with a check, if the seller gives her back change in cash, saying the scarf is to be a gift for her sick aunt. The hot dog vendor refuses but a man (Luke) offers her $20.
