What Show Or Movie Adaptation Poorly Executed A Specific Scene From The Book In A Cringey Way?

Or maybe it was the scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when Ginny and Harry share their first kiss in the Room of Requirement, when we all know that the scene should have been set after Gryffindor wins the Quidditch Cup:

And I don't quite know where to begin with Ella Enchanted, but I suppose we can start with the not-so-meet-cute between Ella and Char:

Miramax
