Gone Girl

The Gillian Flynn Hit Novel Vs. The David Fincher Film


The Margos take on one of the most contested and debated films of the past books AND movies of the last few years– Gone Girl. If there was ever a story that was picked apart, praised, maligned and worshipped more than the 2012 novel by Gillian Flynn we have yet to hear about it.

Do you love the adventures of “Amazing Amy” Dunne and her husband Nick or do you find them irritating? How believable is the basic plot? Is Amy a sociopath or just a woman scorned? People have all kinds of opinions and the Margos are no different talking about the book and film directed by the always interesting David Fincher. (This is our third Fincher movie after we have covered Fight Club and The Social Network in previous eps.)


Some of the highlights from this discussion:

  • The casting of the leads including Rosamund Pike (Amy Dunne) and Ben Affleck (Nick Dunne)
  • Gillian Flynn’s background in magazine writing and how she adapted her own book into a screenplay
  • The insanely complicated plot (and how much it relies on the suspension of disbelief)
  • Big changes between book and movie
  • The creepy score by Trent Reznor

Audio clips:

  • Gone Girl  trailer
  • The interrogation scene between Nick Dunn, Detective Boney (Kim Dickens) and Officer Gilpin (Patrick Fugit)
  • Amy announces she is alive
  • Saved by Zero  The Fixx

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes

  • Book Vs Movie Podcast: For those of you who are not familiar with it my friend Margo Porras of Shes Nacho Mama’s Blog and I co-host a podcast called “Book Vs. Movie” and you can subscribe to us on iTunes with this link Our newest episode was all things Gone Girl (have you heard of it?) and boy did we have fun time dissecting both the film and the novel! The player is embedded below for your listening pleasure. Hope you like it!


  • Fit Bottomed Girls “Power Rock Climb” Playlist: One of my favorite “jobs” (honestly, I would do it for free cuz I have so much with it!) is coming up with playlists for the Fit Bottomed gals and this week I picked my favorite “Power Rock” songs to get me in the mood to climb a million hills. Let me know what you think of it!
  • Fitness Magazine Goes Digital: About ten years ago I was lucky enough to be in charge of publicity for YM, Fitness and Child It was the best job in the world and I was so proud to work for all of those brands. Well I am sad to say that Fitness magazine has been folded and will now be digital-only. The publisher of the magazine (Meredith publishing) bought Shape magazine (!) and now they will combine their audience. What does this mean? If you have a subscription to Fitness magazine, starting this May you will be getting Shape magazine instead. If you already get both? I have no idea! Fitness will now exist in digital format only at Very sorry to hear that Fitness is closing but most of the staff will not remain on digital and all of their great content can still be found online. (Whew)

That’s all I have for today—keep checking back for news, reviews and playlists aplenty! Be sure to check back on Sunday, February 8th for my next Vlog post and giveaway!
