The Fault in Our Stars
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. Those are the only two options. This drama is an outstanding entry in its sub-genre, sadly dominated to date largely by films like "Love Story" and Nicholas Sparks adaptations. Based on John Green's young adult novel, "The Fault in Our Stars" manages to transcend those films with solid direction from Josh Boone ("Stuck in Love"), a spot-on script from Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ("The Spectacular Now"), near-perfect casting, deftly created characters and often hilarious dialogue that feels closer to vintage Cameron Crowe than Sparks.
