Great acting in a great movie

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 of Watching this Movie

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 :)

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.
