The actors in this well directed movie were all excellent. It was told from the teenagers viewpoint and the adults had very little dialog. This movie was one of the best movies of the year and I think it should not be forgotten when oscar nominations are being selected. . You will be so engrossed in the movie that you will not be not even be tempted to look at your watch. GO SEE IT and enjoy!

The perks was fantastic... I'm so glad it was directed by the author himself. It could have not been done better. I cried, laughed, and felt the characters pain. MUST GO SEE!!!!

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.
