This movie is a self-indulgent exercise built on a one-joke premise…but it made me laugh from start to finish.

It’s rare that a novelist gets the chance to adapt his own best-selling book and direct it as well. Stephen Chbosky waited more than a decade to get that opportunity, but it’s paid off for him in 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'.

In the old days of Saturday matinee serials, audiences faced with cliffhanger endings took comfort in knowing that the story would be resumed one week later. The same can’t be said for the latest Harry Potter picture, which offers much incident but no resolution: for that, we all have to wait until next year. If you’re a dedicated Potter fan, you’ll have to take what you can from this one—mainly, the pleasure of spending time with its leading characters and the young actors who play them. Following J.K. Rowling’s narrative, there are no scenes at Hogwarts’ Academy. This denies us the opportunity to revel in seeing the finest British actors alive in the vast Potter ensemble; we get only token appearances from Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane and a handful of others, while Maggie Smith, as Professor McGonagall, is absent altogether.
