It may not subvert every cliche of the high-school romance genre, but... pulses with moving and melancholy moments.

A serenely bland adaptation of the John Green young-adult novel about a regular boy in love with the mystery girl next door.

The story is preposterous but then so is being a teenager, and while those years grow increasingly distant, I suspect the intended audience will still identify with its characters.

The film plays it safe, portraying only the mildest or most fanciful forms of teen rebellion.

In many ways, that road trip is highlight of the film, offering some good laughs and a glimpse of high school bonding at its best.

Neustadter and Weber have a feel for the mundane moments of teen life that carry an emotional punch.

In its considered, neatly packaged way, the film occupies a safe and solid middle-class middle ground in teen storyland...

The film rightly treads a neat middle ground between sentimental teen idealism and the indie cool of The OC.

Book is better!

I enjoyed this film as it came form my favourite John Green book. I did feel that it was a bit of a let down in places. I do wish that Margo was played but someone else that was more mysteries. but all and all it was pretty good!

Nonbelievable plot and soooo drawn out

I got so bored from the halfway point when the plot become really weak and even worse the long drawn out scenes of very little happening. Went to see it due to the reviews and wasnt at all what I expected
