"Insane City" (Putnam), by Dave Barry
Dave Barry's comic novels read like screenplays. His books thus take very little adaptation to bring them to the local cineplex. Mr. Barry's first novel, "Big Trouble," came out in 1999 and was turned into a theater-ready, star-studded spectacle by 2001. (The release was delayed due to the movie's suddenly controversial plot, involving a plane hijacking and a nuclear bomb, by the Sept. 11 terror attacks.)
