“I don’t typically go for these teeny rom-y flicks (well established fact), but this one had a good rep and leads that I really like (Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley). The aimless and party-heavy high school boy and the nice quiet girl get together at the end of high school. There was also some good help on the supporting side: Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bob Odenkirk, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler. I did think that it felt a bit more real than movie relationships (especially with the young uns) tend to, and our leads were very good, but still not really my thing.
At the very least, still a better love story than Twilight.”
