(This review may contain spoilers).
I saw this film with a couple of friends at the cinema and I did really enjoy watching this… more than I thought I would.
I liked the fact that this movie was as much about the friendships that existed and were formed between the characters as the romantic aspects of this movie.
I wasn’t sure what to make of Margo’s character. Although I did think she was an intriguing character, the depth to her wasn’t shown as much as it could have been. I did think that the actress who played her was pretty good, even though I haven’t read the book, so I don’t know how accurate the characters were in comparison to their book incarnations.
I liked Quentin’s character and I especially liked his friendship with Ben and Radar. I noticed a scene that was particularly similar to the series of the Inbetweeners.
I liked the fact that there were some elements of mystery in this movie. It was good to see the kinds of clues that Margo had left for Quentin to find, even though I would have liked to see more of her past clues and how they all fit together.
There were some really good amusing moments in this movie, but also others that were especially sweet. I liked Lacey… and I liked Lacey’s and Ben’s interactions.
This film was entertaining to watch, but I did think Margo was a bit too unkind to the people around her. Then again, she didn’t seem to have the nicest of parents… and her sister showed signs of turning out the same way. While it was good to see some of Margo and Quentin in the past, I think there should have been more shown of her to make her a more sympathetic character.
This film was entertaining to watch and although I did have some mixed feelings about the ending, I thought it did work with the film. While I don’t expect I’ll watch this again, I did enjoy this… and my friends did, too.
