- Character age difference. Waaaay off!
- No Clairese, Dionysus, Ares, Chimera, Fates, or Argus.
- The Hydra and Persephone weren't in the first book.
- Replaced St. Louis scene with Nashville scene.
- Annabeth's hair! She's a blond, for goodness sake!
- Grover's personality and appearance. He should have been a shy, sincere satyr with curly hair and a slight limp.
- Percy's eyes. They should've been green.
- the Underworld's location. It sure wasn't in the Hollywood Sign!
- the Lotus Casino was supposed to be like an arcade, not like a bar!
- The pearls weren't even important in the book, they were just from a random underwater lady. In the movie they were the main plot.
- Chiron wasn't supposed to know who Percy's dad was until he was claimed.
- The Lotus Casino didn't have any stupid flowers! Who would eat a flower anyway?
- Luke didn't seem evil until the end in the book, but in the movie Luke was evil from the start.
- They left out the part where Luke tried to kill Percy with the scorpion!!!!!
- Left out blue food.
- Didn't mention Thalia's tree.
- Kronos wasn't even MENTIONED. He's the whole reason for the series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Left out Tunnel of Love and Restaurant scenes.
- Left out animal truck scene.
- Percy was supposed to uncap Riptide, not click it!
- Mrs. Dodds was supposed to be a Pre-Algebra teacher, not an English teacher.
- There were NO mentions of Percy in a pool AT ALL in the book.
- Hades wasn't supposed to be a McJagger impersonator. I guess he was listening to Ke$ha ("And we kick 'em to the curb unless they look like McJagger")
- Grover wasn't supposed to stay behind in the Underworld. Percy's mom was.
- Percy should have used a gazing ball to look at Medusa, not an iPod, because...
- ... DEMIGODS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO HAVE ELECTRONICS!
- Annabeth and Percy were supposed to be on the same Capture the Flag team.
- Annabeth was supposed to show Percy around camp.
- They never mentioned the Big Three rule.
- They said that gods aren't allowed to talk to their children. That's not true... they're just not really advised to interfere with the quests.
