A little uneven, but there were some nice performances.
very emotional and very good movie
One of the better "coming-of-age" films I've seen in a long time. Ezra Miller steals the movie with an amazing performance.
I haven't laughed so hard since Battlefield Earth!!!!
A shallow, hollow mess; anyone over eight will be bored stiff.
a movie with a solid soul
a movie about finding oneself in a crazy world and tragedy..a talented cast brings this great book to life...a classic
haven't seen it yet and i know it will be amazing when i do.
Lovely movie about life and insecurities. Ezra Miller was a scene-stealer in the movie.
great coming-of-age story
Watson makes Kristen Stewart look like Meryl Streep.
The most unintentionally hilarious movie in ages!
Amazing movie, just amazing, with a great cast and great soundtrack!
People were yelling, "FART AT WILL!"
Odious; you'd have to really hate someone to make them sit through this.
ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF 2012
Just awful. Why did they even bother?
Unfamiliar w/ novel movie is based on, & not a fan of the young actors, i found the acting fine, and the various teen topics both contemporary and relevant. it covers plenty, from the usual 'sex-n-drugs', 1st kiss, crushes, as well as social exclusion/bullying of loners (a precociously intelligent one on literature, making him socially awkward), to taboo topics like suicide, depression, mental disorders, pedophilia, and even incestuous pedophilia. the blindness of an indifferent religious family to intolerance covering gay love, to straight love abuse/cheating of the usual jerks (guys) on vulnerable girls. if people 'hate' this movie, they may be homophobic, but unwilling to articulate it. w
Absolutely amazing. Very similar to the book. I loved it. Actors fit the roles perfectly.
The filmmakers may not have set out to make the funniest picture of the year, but they managed to anyway.
One hilariously awful movie. 0 stars!
It was crucial to have a solid lead actress if this was going to work; unfortunately, there isn't one in sight.
Not one flaw.
I loved it! Amazing actors, Emma is beautiful and the story is so moving. I love Charlie's character. I read the book and this was an amazing adaption. I'd see it again for sure! I don't know how people can be saying such awful things.
The worst movie I've seen in awhile. Emma Watson needs to stop making movies, she's becoming the Kristen Stewart of her generation.
At least the Kardashian's are nice to look at...
My daughter who is 11 loved it! I ejoyed it too> For me, was a nice change from the cosby show or Kardashian bs.
This movie is so dumb it's offensive.
Very nice story and good acting maybe people who didn't like it just cause they don't like these kind of stories it was so touching
I didn't think I'd see a movie that was worse than BATTLESHIP this year...I was wrong. :(
After loving the opening titles sequence of this movie, I found the following two hours extraneous.
Wow, loved this. The actors are amazing even if they're so young. Emma did a great job at being American too. The ending was a huge surprise for me, it was pretty dark, but I still left feeling hopeful.
Awful acting, awful everything. I can't imagine anyone giving this a good review. There's no accounting for taste, I guess...
The definition of dreck.
Oh man, I couldn't believe what a stinker this was! Plays like a bad sitcom, only less interesting.
Best film of the year! One of those whole-package films, with a little bit of everything in the story all carried by an incredible cast & crew.
Deeper themes were explored on Charles in Charge.
I haven't watched it yet, but I am a big fan of the book. I think for Charlie they should have got Anton Yelchin. Just knowing the character I think that would have been the perfect actor to play him... And also knowing the Sam character I'm betting Emma Watson was a great choice...
Quite possibly the WORST movie I have ever seen.
Save your money. The flaccid writing and lackluster performances make this a real slog. It picked up briefly during the "fart party" scene, but by then it was too late.
i love this movie
Go to watch Logan. He does some amazing acting this in this.
