Rated 1/10. This is not what I had expected, and turned out to be an extremely lame movie, with a really silly ending.

There were so many cliches, daft script writing, and bad acting that I can't even see this appealing to kids.

There are much better stories of this genre around. Skip this one.

Teen movie not to bad but not a lot of action kind of slow and boring!

This is another one of John Greens books that got turned into a movie… only this time I don’t think that it was very well done. I felt that the movie rushed through the series of events and did not take the time to capture the characters, as well as the scenery. I also noticed that a lot of the humor that was in the book was left out of the movie. Some parts in the book, I was head over heels laughing, almost brought to tears, but the movie did not quench my laughter that I previously experienced while reading the book. I believe that the casting was not selected in a professional and delicate manner. The actress, who played Margo, did not fully commit and take on the role that she was suppose to. I felt that she lacked the necessary requirements to play the role. Furthermore, I can definitely say that I was not impressed and will not be put on my re watching list. Although I did not enjoy it, I encourage others to take a look and watch it for themselves to see if they experienced the disappointment that I did. - @BakerBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Paper Towns is a movie with a lot of heart and a story of self-discovery, love, and friendship. Just when you thought you knew how it would end, it surprised you. I really enjoyed this movie. 10/10

A pretty good movie with the mystery of the disappearance of a girl. I found the ending unbelievable. But the trip was okay.

This was a movie that played it safe by sticking to the book, which eventually gets a little boring, with a small exception as to the order the more minor events occur. For me, the movie was average; the storyline was lacking and might be confusing to those who have not previously read the book, and it was one big cliché. I began to enjoy the movie halfway through. For fans of the book, this movie is for you.

Manic pixie dream girl teaches the lovelorn boy next door to "live in the moment". This was 2 hours of cliché-filled dialogue, uninteresting characters and a painfully predictable plot. John Green is not John Hughes and "Paper Towns" is not "The Breakfast Club" (although it tries to be). There are some excellent road trip / coming-of-age movies out there, but this was just flat, boring, and ridiculous.

I agree with the John Hughes comparison to a certain degree but his movies focused on breaking exaggerated stereotypes ... begin and end states. Paper Towns has a similar horizon-broadening, coming of age message but its stereotypes are more realistically understated so it's more about the experiences along the way.

really loved this coming-of-age movie. great acting, great script; loved the ending too (not your typical teenage movie ending). highly recommend.

Quite like a John Hughes kind of film with a bit of mystery involved. I am glad this was something a bit different from the regular teen type movies that adults can smile through as well. Performances were delightful. Recommend
