The Hollywood version with Sting playing Feyd and directed by David Lynch sucks monkey balls how badly they f#cked up the book.

While not perfect but much better than the original movie- the Dune mini-series that the Sci-fi channel made is much better at following the story without massive changes. It's a 3 disc set(the director's cut) but you can probably find it at a discount store for pretty cheap.

Generally I really don't like movie versions of books it's really hard to condense a book's plot into a visual medium like film but some do a pretty decent job.
