Wordiezett So much average
Rijndri Load of rubbish!!
ReaderKenka Let's be realistic.
Platicsco Good story, Not enough for a whole film
katerina_tw There are lots of teen movies about romance and love and all the things around them, that are actually kinda good, but this film was unrealistically bad. It has NO plot and no character. Very awkward and boring to watch and the acting is really bad. The "couple's" meeting goes very fast and in some points you don't even understand what's going on, having met in one day and the next day they are in love. Not even worth your time.
marianajb Yes, this movie is for teenagers, kind of a chick flick; and probably that is why I enjoyed so much; but at the same time, the movie has some very good aspects; like screenplay, and soundtrack, anyone who listens to the soundtrack of this movie, simply falls in love with it. Is one of those movies where you get "all the feels". Also production is fine for this film. But I have to give a little bit of credit to Britt's character, Aubrey, I mean even her name is different, she is different, and like that, but I don't mean like some weird hipster or something like that, she's kind of antique, and what is more important is that she doesn't care is everyone is doing something, e.g. a Facebook account. If she likes it she'll do it, but if she doesn't she won't. I loved her attitude. The movie itself is good, it is enjoyable (more if you're a teenager and having a similar situation).
shark-gaming It was a great movie in which I find a lot of myself out, so maybe thats why i liked it so much. The scenario was incredibly realistic, which made me so happy. Showing so much situations from real life.I believe many teenagers pass trough this kind of story. Awkward at some points, which made it so funny... Great acting also...P.S: I dunno if thats a review, but I just wanted to say a few words about it...Have a nice day ;)
Flora McNulty Personally I felt this film was mediocre. It could've been a good film but what got me the most was the pacing. The whole meeting/breaking up with boyfriend happened within such a short space of time and even them getting together was in such a short space of time. I also found the characters exasperating and unrealistic. Usually I feel that Britt Robertson is a good actress but in this I feel she was appalling and so was Dylan O'Brien. The likeliness that a girl like Aubrey would ever end up with Ronnie. Victoria Justice annoyed me and the way that the teenagers talked about parties and how you'd just waltz into a party was so so so unrealistic. Who actually just drives around looking for parties to go to? It doesn't happen. The script was weak and just not relate-able. The scene near the end where she says to her parents: 'I met a boy' was especially irritating as no one actually does that.The way in which the two main leads interacted was infuriating and overall I would not recommend this film. It was cliché. However, the one redeeming feature was the soundtrack. It was easy listening and suited the scenes. Also, I quite liked Craig Robertson's character who introduced a comedic element.
