OK FOR SOME VIEWERS...

It's a lot of movie to fit into an hour and 40 minutes so many of the things that made it such a fascinating read had to be left out. Those who know and love the book will be delighted to see the characters come to life. Perks newbies will be left hanging on multiple points as not much of the inner-monologue makes it to the screen. Regardless, there are some fine performances put out by the three leads who saved it from being a teen giggle-fest.

It was engaging. Didn't want to leave to go to the bathroom. I cared about the characters. It was fun and emotional. A little unrealistic or overplayed at times, but it is fiction. Definitely worth a watch.

This movie was really touching

This movie was sad, and really funny at times. It was a lot sadder than I thought it was going to be, but overall it was fantastic. I laughed and nearly cried many times. Charlie's relationship with Sam was really touching, but the best part was probably seeing Patrick dressed up as Tim Curry's character from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
