First off I want to say I never read this book before. I usually read the book before seeing the movie of a book adaptation, but I was unable this time around. I will be reading the book now because I am interested in what they left out. I actually really liked the storyline and the premise behind this tale. I honestly thought this was going to be like Me Before You or The Fault in Our Stars. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised that no one died in this film. Just to be prepared, I brought a pack of tissues to the early screening I attended last week. I wasn’t sure that I would need them or not.
It was a really cute movie! I liked the characters and their story. However, there were somethings that did not add up. Like the fact that the main character Maddy played by Amanda Stenberg easily applies and gets a credit card just only turning 18 years old. Also the fact that when Maddy and Olly played by Nick Robinson take off to Hawaii they rent out what looks like a nice place and honestly looks like an Air B&B house. Let’s be real in order to book a nice house or condo you have to be at least 21 and there both 18 years old, so that wouldn’t add up. Also the fact that they show Olly in what seems to be a rental car. First off I believe you have to be 21 and show proof of insurance and a credit card in order to rent a car.
Even with those things on my mind about the movie. I still liked it well enough to recommend it. Hopefully, the book will explain some things that I feel needed more of an explanation. As for the music played in the film. I really liked the songs they played in the background and I want to buy the soundtrack.
If you saw the movie, let me hear your opinions of it in the comment section below:
