I had the pleasure of watching Paper Towns at an advance screening last night with my friends.
The movie gets a five stars in being entertaining. It had me laughing out loud, squealing out loud and was the most animated experience I’ve ever had. Oh and lets not forget the surprise moment when Ansel Elgort just pops up on the screen like

Seriously though, the casting of the movie was on point, the characters actually looked and acted like teenagers so that was nice. Cara Delevigne made me fall in love with her and Nat Wolff the star of the show was just brilliant, all the cast did a very good job of representing the characters from the books.
Even after that, the film seems a bit lacking. Don’t get me wrong it’s enjoyable but it’s no TFIOS alright, it doesn’t leave you thinking about it for days to come or whatever. The ending was not a happily ever after which made the film realistic but it could’ve ended at a happier note.
Despite that, the film leaves you with some great messages about friendship, appreciating what you have and of course the main one: there is a difference between what you think people are and what they actually are.
