Consensus: Wise, funny, and heartbreaking without resorting to exploitation, The Fault In Our Stars does right by its bestselling source material.

The film has enough charm and humor to keep it appealing to a wide audience, and dumbing things down doesn't feel particularly smart or canny, and proves to be a minor distraction to an otherwise majorly entertaining feature.

The Fault In Our Stars could indeed become this generation's Love Story -- mildly implausible, but genuinely moving.

Time Out

Far from the shameless emotional pummeling it might have been, this adaptation of John Green's cherished YA cancer drama finds a conduit to earned, understated tears -- a tricky accomplishment given the material.

While it may not conform to one's real-life expectations it certainly hews tightly to teen-flick conventions.

This movie can parade its "truth" as much as it likes, but I for one don't buy it.

"The Fault in Our Stars" may not show the true messiness of cancer, but it does grapple with death and the ability to survive great loss. Maybe that's enough truth for one movie.

The film dodges most of the pitfalls of clichéd cancer dramas with humor and natural warmth.

Trespass

The Fault in Our Stars presents itself as a cooler, calmer, more considered kids-with-cancer film, but remains content with going through the melodramatic motions.

The book was better. Something in the casting of this felt off to me. Not that the cast do a bad job, they do their best with it, but to look at, it did not… More
Film Crazy
A bittersweet rollercoaster of a ride. A beautifully acted and heart felt story but I wasn't blown away!

A sugarcoated sad story, if at all, no matter what it claims at the very beginning. Not necessarily a bad one, though. It's just they mess it up at one too… More

A bittersweet and occasionally honest little romance that falters trying too hard to be cute (Hazel and Augustus, seriously?) and is ridden with too much… More
