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

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

What in the name of God is wrong with me that I didn't cry once -- I, who just the day before wept through the entirety of my child's thoroughly upbeat school play.

A positive and inspirational experience, far removed from cloying sentimentality. Hollywood might have lost touch with several genres in recent years, but on this evidence the weepie is back.

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

The Fault in Our Stars is a heart-breaker for sure, but it's also a sweet, romantic film full of sudden warmth and humor. It gets everything right about being young and in love for the first time.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Devotees of the book may have some concerns, but for those willing to take this movie on its own terms, as what reviewers used to call a 'four-hanky weeper,' it's something of a wow.

Chicago Reader

An emotional climax arrives every 15 minutes or so, and every affecting moment is underscored with a soppy light-rock song.

There's a moment when the breeziness powering the story goes away and medical reality takes over, and Elgort's performance goes to a surprising new place.

The Playlist

You should probably not see "The Fault in Our Stars" with anyone you're trying to impress. You'll either end up a puffy, sniffling mess of tears, or you'll finish the movie dry-eyed and convince that person you're a psychopath.

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

"Fault in Our Stars" is the latest romantic tear jerker in the vein of "The Notebook". It's a story about 2 teenagers who fall in love… More

Geesh. So I read the book, and it's fine. Its themes of love and death aren't particularly deep or new; in fact, they are a bit contradictory and a… More

A bittersweet rollercoaster of a ride. A beautifully acted and heart felt story but I wasn't blown away!
