Genre: Drama, Mystery, Comedy, & Romance
Rating: PG13
Where I Got It: Seen it in theaters


After an all night adventure, Quentin's life-long crush, Margo, disappears, leaving behind clues that Quentin and his friends follow on the journey of a lifetime.


Since the book club read the book, we all decided to see it in theaters as well. The book was okay, so I didn't have any expectations of the movie. It was pretty much how I expected it to be. 

I was WAY funnier than the book. The darn movie had me dying. I loved Q and his friends...they reminded me so much of BF and his pals. Nerdy and funny. And even one of them was a dirty little kid. XD It was great. I especially love that they sang the Pokemon theme song to get pumped up and gain courage. Me = happy. I nerded out to that and sang along!

The rest of the people where meh. I was more interested in Q and his friends. I did not like Margo still. A little stuck-up, selfish girl with ugly eyebrows. THOSE EYEBROWS ARE STARING INTO MY SOUL!!!!!!! I did like her voice tho. BUT THOSE EYEBROWS!

I am bummed that they cut the adventure with Q and Margo down a bit. I feel like there was more revenge and time together. ALSO, they changed the scene at the zoo. LAMMMMMMMME. I guess there was legalities involved...but c'mon...Margo would not venture to a business building. Again...lame.

The ending, in a way, I felt was better than the book ending. I can't really say WHY. But Q got his answer and he seems content and is moving on with life. Good. The book made me want to punch Q in his stupid face, but the movie made me respect him a little bit. Still...I have much hatred towards Margo. >_>

Overall, this was okay. The story-line bugged me, because I hate Margo (and her eyebrows) and it bothers me that Q was so in love with her. She's a selfish idiot. I did have a few good laughs and had a nerdy moment, but alas, this was just okay for me. Since we read the book, my expectations were not high and it fell in the bracket of my expectations. In the end, I shall stamp this with 3 stars

Re-watch?: Nah. One time was enough

Maybe but I should try a book of the author first.

B, me too. Sighs. He's becoming the next Nicholas Sparks and I'm not a fan. He's okay, over-rated tho.

Melliane, Maybe! I've only read this one and one other years ago.

Ana, hahaha love me some scary dinos!
