Great coming of age flick that is as heart wrenching as it is nostalgic. I loved the suprises and wide range of emotions that we were treated with. First time I've seen Logan Lerman....impressed!

When I went to see this movie I knew very little about it ( I didn't even know it was based on a book), so I had no real expectations. This movie turned out to be one of the best movies I've seen this year. Everything was amazing, from the actors and screenplay, to the direction and the music choice. It was funny and endearing, but also chilling and emotionally-charged. It is one of those movies that leave you feeling inspired and enlightened. It also can appeal to a wide range of audiences. Everyone from young teens to senior citizens will enjoy this movie. I highly recommend it :)

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.

took my 15 year old to what I thought was going to be another mindless teenage high school flick. GREAT surprise! Funny, heartwarming, and terrific acting. Highly recommend!
