The Fault in Our Stars

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Hazel and Gus share a sarcastic sense of humor, a distaste for the conventional, and ultimately a love that sweeps them on an unforgettable journey. Although the two teens face unlikely challenges, their courage and dedication to each other prove that while life isn't perfect, love can still be extraordinary in this powerfully moving film based on John Green's New York Times best-selling novel.

Amazing movie about two young people in love.

i watched the movie and i am now reading the book but think i would perfer the book better if you dont want your heart to be broken because the movie is very sad and i cried through out the movie. :(

I really wanted to like this movie as a huge Ansel Elgort fan (after seeing Baby Driver) but now I know why I skipped this movie when it came out. It was honestly very boring and was just so cheesy throughout. I fast-forwarded through most of it to watch the biggest scenes, I couldn't believe how long of a movie they somehow made this into..... yikes

Great movie. Way better than expected! The love story was great and the message to love in the here and now was great.

I would Recommend this book to anyone 13 or older, because it has a lot of bad words. Words i am not allowed to say. And has a chapter that is not great for younger kids to read. But it is by far one of the best books I have ever read. It was so romantic and sad. I did cry a few times. lol<3

This film is well-meant and the actors play their roles well, managing their cancer diagnoses and effects on their lives and plans. However, it didn't strike a chord with me.

Simple yet moving.

It was such a cute film. It was very emotional as well. I read the book first and enjoyed it very much, so I had to watch the movie and I was not disappointed and neither will you be. I loved the love story and the theme/message of this movie was just amazing. The characters are well thought out and the actors are well chosen. The actors performed really well in the film. One of my friends told me that they did not like this film because it was really cheesy, but in my opinion, that's what made this movie amazing. It was simple yet, heartwarming. I was either crying or laughing in this movie. My favorite thing about this movie was how the characters fought hard to overcome their illnesses. I totally recommend this movie to aged 13 and over. I give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars. @terrificbooklover of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This cheesy romantic comedy/drama is based on the novel by the same name. Hazel has had cancer for many years, and has managed to seclude herself over time. Luckily, her mom asks her to go to a cancer support group where she meets Augustus, a young teen who is in remission from cancer. The pair quickly finds themselves falling in love against the odds, and travel together to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s favourite author and learn a little bit more about life and love. I personally enjoyed the novel much more than the film, since many important events were left out and some characters were removed altogether. Nonetheless, on it’s own the movie is fairly entertaining and captures the major themes intended in the original. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The fault in our stars is a very sad movie but I enjoy it very much. It was depressing, hilarious, and contained all the emotions that anyone could ever feel! The main character Hazel Grace was played by Shaylene Woodley who used to star in the hit show The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Augustus Waters played by Ansel Elgort was also one of the main characters in this movie and frankly one of the most important. Everyone seems to know that the books of movies are always usually better but in this case the movie was very great. Personally I thought that the book was a lot better and contain a lot more details but the movie got to show you how the characters in the book felt and displayed emotion in real life. The ending was the part that got me the most, as it is very sad and it made me cry several times. Since the book revolves around cancer, it was very emotional to watch throughout the movie especially when, surprise, someone dies! Since the movie was not as great as the book I would rate it a 4/5.

A lot of book to movie adaptations are not true to their books, important parts from the books get cut out or things get changed a little too much and the movie ends up being completely different than the book. This, however, was not the case with the movie adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars. I found that I enjoyed the movie just as much as I enjoyed the book. The cast was pretty close to how I had imagined the characters and all of my favourite parts from the books made it into the movie. Another great thing about this movie is that it is not the type of movie where you need to read the book first to get the full experience. Someone who has not read the book can watch the movie, understand the whole thing and love it just as much as someone who has read the book. The Fault In Our Stars is a wonderful movie that made me laugh and cry and I would definitely recommend watching it. 5 Stars
