IMDB's summary: A young man & his friends embark upon the road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.
My thoughts: I finally, finally, finally got to the theater to see this. I made Jill & Gladys come with me. I have become a HUGE fan of John Green (the author) after reading The Fault in our Stars, Paper Towns & now as I read Looking for Alaska. Anywho, I went in with high expectations as they did such a great job with taking TFIOS from book to the screen & it was the only movie I even left saying: "it was just as good as the book". Like any other reader, I'm typically let down by the movie. While I enjoyed Paper Towns & there were enough giggle moments - oh, Ben! - there were many changes from the book to screen that I didn't dig. I still enjoyed it but I got the squirmy feeling when things weren't like they were in the book (does that happen to you?). I will, however, buy it when it comes out & will watch it again & again, I'm sure.
I thought that they did a good job with their casting & I especially liked the guy that played Ben. He was a riot. I mean, he was funny in the book but something about him on-screen really got the giggles going.
Also, Tina, the surprise cameo is what I'm sure you were talking about & I was pretty excited - "do you like the dragon?". Tee hee!
Paper Town's Grade:
