Even though the film is a little bit different from the book it was still very enjoyable the actors who play Tessa and Harden captured their characters to a T.

Predictable .

The intense way they fell for each other was there.

Others have said it - this movie is so empty.

" Such a confusing and strange film.


The main charcthers remind me of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen as they are so bland and just they are not that likeable at all.

so save your money and watch endgame again.

Boring and bland .

Typical teenage romance, poorly written and very slow paced

But this movie is so ridiculous, predictable and a HUGE CLICHÉ.

Boring and predictable .

That leaves you wondering what the whole fuss was about - nothing happens.

As a 15 year old I'm used to see some cliché high school drama's.

To conclude don't waste your money seeing this movie.

REALLY dry dialogues, i genuinely feel like no one really talked in this movie, and if they did they talked really slow for no reason and it was mad annoying , 4 lined dialogues took them 3 minutes to finish.

You will die in boredom and nothing you can't guess

This movie was trash , it was unsatisfying and a huge waste of time.

We died laughing in the cinema, because it was so ridiculousy predictable and stupid.

Incredibly honest and truthful, Don't waste your money .

Or read the book, (I haven't, didn't know it was based on a book anyway), it's enjoyable.

It has a bad boy "hero" who goes from being a rude, dull dud to suddenly seducing the sweet, innocent heroine.

and as always true love is defeated by the new and exciting environment, with new boys to attract and hunger for.

As bland as it gets .

This movie is such a cliche it hurts.

I was curious, I knew it would be bad, but I was bored and fancied a laugh.

Honestly this movie does exactly what a movie should do: be entertaining.

Don't waste your time watching it.

This movie is a cliche teen romance drama.

The chemistry was absolutely breathtaking, the acting was amazing and I highly guarantee for everyone to come to the theaters and watch it!

i dont think that the vast majority would behead me if i say its a bit boring at times.

I've watched both The Room and After, and I can tell you that The Room, considered to be the worst movie of all time, was better than this.

Scorching and intense.


Everything about it was cliche; the characters, the plot, everything.

Some of the scene from the trailer wasn't even in the movie like the part where Hardin smash the book shelf with the guitar, when the book went between Tessa legs, the part where he said" you are stunning" and much more.

Worst movie adapted from a book I've ever seen.

You can definitely see the chemistry between the two actors, which made the film worth watching.

The plot is OK and VERY predictable, I just don't feel that the dad plot line was explored well, it was just thrown there to try to explain why Hardin is like that.


Just seems like another boring teen movie.

However the movie turned this book into every other boring typical love story.

I'm still so confused why it even made the cut because it was a waste of time!

It was so so worth watching and I will recommend it to everyone I know.

On its own, it's a mildly, albeit cliché, entertaining teen romance.

It left me on the edge of my seat, and I can't wait to see more films in this series!

For a teen romance, I thought the movie was entertaining.

As a reader, I told myself to not have too much expectations when going into the theaters, but I left feeling so empty.

Incredibly difficult to follow the plot if you havent read the book.

Full of BAD stereotypes, boring and VERY CRINGE.

It is confusing as to why a story about college students is kept so PG when college students in general aren't PG.

There is very little plot to this movie, I keep waiting for something to happen.

REVIEW: For Hardin Scott, "Nice is just another word for boring.

What a boring ending of a film!

Either way saw the movie just got hooked on it immediately .. the intense chemistry between the leads was insane....

The film was predictable from beginning to end.

While some moments, despite how cliche, were nice and pleasing to the eye, giving your inner self a little fairytale to daydream about, the whole plot and the movie as a whole does not deserve more than a 5, unfortunately.

Overall, the worst movie adaption I've ever seen.

Worst Movie of The Year So Far!.

Love the story it gets so intense at one point of 10/10

This is movie is just based on other movies that have been done before like Cruel Intentions, She's all that, twilight (loosely) and many more so cliche and annoying

This was a waste of money and time and I would rather bang my head against the wall for 2 hrs than watch it again.

I'm guessing they also toned down the sexual essence of the books in order to reach a larger audience, but kissing shouldn't look that boring, really.

Every rom com has cringy moments but the biggest setback of this movie is that it has no storyline.

even though I really enjoyed it I thought the pacing was a little off there was no transitions between scenes which made it a little choppy.

Enjoyed it .

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

A total waste of time

Nothing was shown about Hardin being depressed and violently angry while trying to form a relationship with Tessa, all that was show was Hardin being so monotone and nice to Tessa that it made no sense with how they got an apartment together when NOTHING was shown about them fighting or trying to work things out let alone meeting Hardins parents or learning about his drinking issues and everything in between.

An ACTUAL waste of time .

Seriously, don't waste your money or time.


In conclusion, this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my life.

The main plot for me in the books was the intense chemistry between the two.

Don't waste your time and money.

The main characters are plain and boring.

And a ton of Cliche characters to boot.

Plot is really bad and predictable, acting just couldn't get any cringier, there's also no chemistry between the actors which is the main key to making a good romance movie in my opinion.

It was a waste if my time, i'm giving it a 4 cause im usually a sucker for romance and thats the only factor that I enjoyed.

This was the worst movie I've ever seen and I enjoyed Twilght and 50 Shades of Gray.

Breathtaking .

This movie is the most cliché movie I've ever seen.

And it was so confusing bc if I haven't read the books before i wouldn't understand anything.

I mean, a lot of romance movies are guilty of this, but still, it makes for some pretty unrelatable and boring characters, especially the female lead.


" and "Waste of time" reviews.

Literally the worst movie I've ever seen.

Lastly, Don't waste your time, even if you like romantic movies, you can watch "Five Feet Apart", it's totally better.

Worst movie I've seen in a long time.


I watched this movie before I read the first book and I thought the movie was cliche and not very good.

The characters are vain unlovable bores and the moral message of the film is just wrong for teens.

Nothing is explained in the movie, and the story is VERY predictable.

I could go on and on about the bad acting and the lack of important characters that you don't see at all in the movie, but in short save your money and either rent from a library or redbox because this movie was not even worth it.

This movie is boring and a waste of time and money.

Regardless, it was a good entertaining movie.

With very little plot mimicking a teen version of "Fifty Shades Of Grey", I'm assuming the book is a lot of sex and no story?

Save your money for something worth.

so boring .

Overall just a very predictable, cringy and boring movie.

The direction is slow and has an uneven pace with the film.


Literally 0 good plot, just a plain, bland, cliché romance

A cliche .

If you are looking for a movie to fall asleep too...

Overall I thought it was a cliché "good girl meets bad boy" teen romance film.

the character didn't have any chemistry, no dialog, this was a waste of time and money, my life deserves better.

Really enjoyed it.

I must say that Hero, who plays Hardin, is extremely pleasant on the eye (which enabled me to forgive some of his monotone delivery) ....

The movie however failed of both subjects, lacking total content, becoming just one more "teenage" movie with a cliche romance that will be forgotten in months.

Very predictable story .

Even if you did read the books its very hard to follow the story of this movie..

I watched this movie to get a good laugh because the book was a mess, but I was pretty much bored to death.

Absolutely breathtaking .

Predictable .

When they left all of that out though, this just became a bland and boring cliché film.

Very slow.

It's sold as a good girl falling in love with a bad boy type of story, but the lack of chemistry between the two leads and bad editing jumping from one scene to another leaves the audience dull and confused.


This movie is just a big cliché.

Josephine is really what I pictured Tessa to look and be like and her acting was enjoyable.

Unpredictable Ending .

As soon as Hardin started speaking, everyone in the room burst out laughing because of how monotone he sounded and how weird his lines were.

Went nowhere .

An intense college romance with passion .

but we all really enjoyed it!

Enjoyable .

A cliché movie can be good.

There were some pointless scenes and important stuff from the book that was cut off.

Don't waste your time if you are a fan of the books!

Total waste of time.

The passion was missing between Hardin and Tessa, those moments and words said in the books that made it all so interesting and intense was not there at all!

I expect there will be more films for the two leads, they did their best with a dull story, a bit like the twilight cast.

Countless cliches, a truly boring plot .

Worst movie of 2019.

But the movie it self was long and absolutely boring, I have only ever walked out in one film, this was it.

I still think it was good in its own right and I would probably have enjoyed it more if I hadn't of read the book

Really boring from the beginning throughout the mid.

Movie started great and I was expecting a lot from the beginning, but come on, there is no storyline at all!

I watched this on Netflix one night while I was bored.

All in all, it was still an enjoyable movie and I could tell a lot of hard work went into it.

Bored one night, i decided to watch it on netflix, and the actual movie seemed different than what the trailers made me think.


I will cherish the book series forever but seriously work a little harder on the next movies, blend them well and make sure to add the important parts, the tattoo scene was pointless that could have been utilized with actual scenes from the book IMO.

A very Boring romantic story of a naive teenager who comes to college and falls in love with a teenager with social problems.


The movie was so rushed and the story felt so flat, boring and just like every other bad teen-movie out there.

It also highlights many other topics such as embracing and exploring her sexuality, etc. In the movie there is no storyline just scenes thrown together and labelled as a film so there is basically no message, no positive or negative message.

It was incredibly cliche and laughably predictable.

And then the fact that half the movie consists of slow motion, making out/'romantic' scenes that are boring us to death.

All in all I enjoyed it and will definitely watch it again and can't wait for the next one!

While I haven't read the book and have no clue how it all goes there, the movie was an extremely predictable cliche with a ton of banalities that left me laughing at the end.

It was boring, actually i was doing something else while I was watching, or better said, listening.

Very slow movie with an instant love that did not make sense.

Only wished the movie was a bit long but nevertheless I enjoyed it so much.

The lack of story, the horrible editing, the rushing, the clipping it was just all round not pleasant to watch and a time-waster.

They have turned one of the best, edgy, and sexy books into a HORRIBLE, RUSHED, cliche movie that NO ONE would fully understand unless they have read the books.

This movie had me on the edge of my seat although I've read the books countless times.

It was a big waste of time.

This is because of both Hero Fiennes-Tiffin and Josephine Langford's stunning performance.

It still had a lot of the book parts in the movie but you can only put so much into a film and I thought it was worth watching and I REALLY REALLY REALLY!!!!!!

Supposed to be a "sexual awakening" movie when my friend literally fell asleep while watching because the characters were so dry.

There is absolutely no storyline, it is so slow-paced, really boring, and to top it all off the acting was just garbage

3 words : BEST MOVIE EVERIt is so amazing, the intense romance is so intriguing and makes you fall in in absolute love with the characters.

The book(s) are incredibly gripping, I don't understand why they had to tone the plot down this much.

If you go into this movie expecting it to be some epic complicated romance movie you will be a disappointed but if you take it for what it is - it's enjoyable to watch.

Slow and Boring .

The movie is awful and cliche.

Although I am much older than the characters in the book, I actually really enjoyed it (I borrowed it from one of my daughter's bookshelves while she is off at university, to be honest.

Overall I enjoyed it.

The long 106 min run time felt longer with the slow dragged out pacing.

At a crucial moment in "After," Tessa Hardin makes a request of Hardin Scott: "Just go slow.

I found it slow, boring and uninteresting with very unlikable characters.

It is unbelievable that she has lived this dull life and the friends she has are even more unbelievable.

They made it feel just like another shallow, cliché love story.

Now if they really wanted to make the main character a cliché character, they should've gave her depth.

The characters are even more cliche and unlikable.

The scene was poorly placed, however it was executed generally well, which made the story hard to follow.

There is no storyline - just kissing!

*timelines are confusing.

The movie was stale if you've seen the movie she's all that then you know the storyline completely it's in like five other movies and the fact that they spoke like they were in a conference the entire time made me want to leave there is no cursing there was no stuttering there is nothing captivating.

Definatly worth watching in my opinion

I really had high hopes for this movie since i read the book which I liked a lot , But this is the worst movie I've ever seen .

Boring .

Boring, fatuous conversations, lame characters, nothing interesting.

Slow, boring and predictable, it's a complete waste of time.

The acting is great also all the actors are very good looking people which makes this movie even more enjoyable.

Too slow too sleepy and the way which the main actors acted was so boring.

The music completely sucked, the dialogue was bland, and its attempts to make the characters appear deep and intelligent in places just completely failed.

Book Hardin was just so much more intense and vulgar, movie Hardin showed absolutely none of that.

Don't waste your time...

Their chemistry is intense .

Supporting characters were kind of stereotypical and bland.

This is one of the worst movies of all time.

So cliche and boring .

Pacing of the entire film really quite slow, a bit feeling to fall asleep to be honest!

The actress who plays the lead is likeable in her wide-eyed naivety, but I kept cringing at so many cliché moments.

I started reading the book, but I didn't finish it, because it got a little repetitive.

Too slow, too weird and not intense at all!

It is targeted for a teen to young adult audiences so yes it's cliche.

If you didn't/haven't read the book/s, this movie would be less than average, predictable and cringey.

Turn on Netflix and enjoy this sexy coming of age romance.

The leads have chemistry, plot is predictable and the acting wasn't bad.

i prefer to see my eyes bleeding than to see this empty movie.

excruciatingly slow and boring .

The continuation is relatively predictable and indubitably goofy.

Enjoyed it but left disappointed & empty.

Yet I believe Hero and Josephine had good chemistry but the lines they were given were bland and cringe worthy.

Rushed movie, no plot, nothing makes sense, dont waste your time please.

Interesting trailer but boring movie .

Don't waste your time watching this predictable unintentional plot with lazy conclusion film ever.

Instead of adding the non-essential and quite frankly boring scenes like the planetarium or aqua world, they should have focused more on the development of the characters.

they were non existent and boring there was no "fireworks" or goosebumps for me.

The acting was pretty good and the visuals and cinematography overall was breathtaking.

The world's most boring dialogue takes place as a tropey love story between rich bad boy with Daddy issues and innocent blonde virgin unfolds.

The movie is simply put as bland as it gets, chemistry took the day off and character development was a no-show.

A complete utter waste of time.

The person I saw it with didn't read the books either and he wanted to walk out like 5 times because he was so bored and confused.

Intense and beautiful .

If anyone would want to watch a movie with no plot, no depth in the characters, no sense in anything, I would recommend this movie.

Boring af .

The plot jumped all over the place, which made it extremely hard to follow, the cinematography was strange in parts, and the scenes did not flow from one to the other.

Waste of money

It's a very eye opening and thrilling movie for this generation and teens new to experimenting and sex.

A group of twelve years olds next to us who bursted into laughter everytime a kiss was a little more intense and when they saw a condom didn't really help to create a romantic atmosphere.

It is boring because 90% of the film nothing much different happens, most of the times is just music playing and Tessa and Hardin kissing and making out.

ok but save your money .

Others may just see the film has another typical cliché romantic drama story that should have been on a lifetime channel.

They strayed too far from Hardin's crudeness that made it foreign and exciting for Tessa, making him lose his edge that drew her to him in the first place.

I enjoyed it.

I really hope we get some kind of extended cut or something on dvd because there were parts where it would skip to the next scene and it was confusing at times.


So, the main takeaway of this film is something like "there's no place like home" and, above all, in matters of the heart, follow your own advice: "Just go slow!

The actor is stunning.

Completely different but very good i love, I love this movie because it was taken in a more intense way

I don't think the film was rushed, i was on the edge of my seat hoping it doesn't end.

The plot is trash and it is extremely rushed and once the climax hit nothing happened.

Soundtrack packs quite a punch into this intense college romance.

Dialogs are shallow, boring and sound so fake, which is why the acting couldn't be good as well.

Cliché after cliché.


It basically took every single cliche you could possibly imagine from a teen movie, and exaggerated it by x100.

The acting and writing was awful and dragged out completely.

A total snore fest.

There was no storyline in the movie whatsoever.

Unexpected .

No storyline whatsoever...

It is confusing as to why a story about college students is kept so PG when college students in general aren't PG.

Don't waste your time .

I mean, a lot of romance movies are guilty of this, but still, it makes for some pretty unrelatable and boring characters, especially the female lead.

Cliché, boring, bad plot, predictable.

Me and my partner looked at each other in confusion and both whispered: "Wtf just happened?

A little cliche if you ask me.


Preedicable and boring.

Also I get that they wanted to reach their younger audience, but sex was an integral part of this book and to leave it out is ridiculous, instead they just ellude to them doing a bunch of stuff and even that was so rushed they might as well have left it out.

It was the worst movie I've ever seen.

Such a waste of time!

Slow build up with excellent chemistry between the leads.

Is a straight up coming of age movie, no hardships, no hassle, blessed life...

Overall, After is a pretty bad film with its bad acting, boring direction, stiff script, and a plot that is lacking in a story.

"Just Go Slow" .

Discord w/mom over her independence to do dumb things - predictable.

It is easy to watch and enjoyable!

And the (slight) twist ending may be stupid, but at least it's kind of emotionally engaging.

I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the 2nd installment next year.

The plot and the way it was addit was stunning.

Waste of time and money .

Save your money!

The movie completely looked over all of the details that made the original story compelling and beautiful.

Don't waste your time watching this movie.

Too fast, cute, sweet, predictible, boring...

Way too cliche over all.

'After' is as formulaic as it is ambitious for young lovers who seek exciting first experiences.

I enjoyed it.

A lot of clichées and predictable.

Is far away from the books that it is still engaging to watch for the book lovers.

Holy crap this was the most garbage cliche movie ever.

When writing a romantic film, if the writers think that some moment seems too cliché, they will throw it away.


Boring, dull and cliche romance film .

This is possibly one of the worst movies I've seen.

Don't waste your money

A very boring, predictable movie .

The "tension", if it could be called that at the end of the movie with the two main characters breaking up was pointless when the got back together.

The whole movie is a clichè of what a high school girl considers romantic but its neither romantic or enjoyable.

All in all, it was still an enjoyable movie and I could tell a lot of hard work went into it.

This was a bad movie, It's a really empty movie, nothing happened!

The plot is slower than molasses and obvious as F.
