I've not read the book, Yet, but I just loved, loved the movie. Read other reviews, and it says it follows the book, so I'm great for that! I really enjoyed it. Actors were good. It had its funny comments/moments. Got see it! You won't be disappointed. And Love triangle. I will go see it again! :)

I will admit, I'm not in the demographic this movie is going for...especially if I consider myself in the demographic of people who actually go to the movies to see a well thought out, entertaining story. The movie is over 2 hours long, and every five minutes I managed to convince myself it was going to pick up at any moment. The plot was monotonous and stagnant, each scene feeling as if it was stuck in a melodramatic loop. The transitions were horrid, and the dialogue turned the movie into an unintentional comedy much of the time. At one point, I thought it may have been just my non-understanding of a book that was written for teenage girls, and I was accepting of that, however, the teenage girls in front of me continuously made fun of the characters, dialogue and situations, to a point where I didn't even care they were talking. I have so much more to say, and not enough characters to say it in. Bottom line, if you're a kid, or an adult, you're wasting your money on this movie.

Read the book and was hoping the movie lived up to the copy. It was a winner! Casting was appropriate. The story line will hold your interest and the end is super! If you're on the edge about seeing it, definitely get to your local theater.

This could have been a real good movie; here comes the but. This film has too many what I call bloopers. It has people doing things that no sane person would have done under the circumstances at hand. The duel voices from Melody and Wanda gets to be distracting. I loved the concept of two souls in one body and each loving a different man. The last 15 minutes are great, too bad the entire movie wasn't at that level of drama and entertaining. This film is from the author of the TWLIGHT trilogy. The girl torn between two guys is repeated here, just different names and a different place. I am going to blame the screenwriter and director for too many of the loose ends and events that only stupid individuals wouldn't even do in real life. The acting is good and the cinematography well done; as is the set design that was the inside of the caves out in the desert. All you car buffs will like the shiny chrome LOTUS'S for sure. I wanted to give this one a go; but I just couldn't do it this time
