One-line Reviews (152)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unpredictable Ending .

The continuation is relatively predictable and indubitably goofy.

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.

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

however, the movie was a huge disappointment and i wasted 1 hour and 40 minutes watching a cliché college romance movie

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

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

so boring .

I enjoyed it.

Worst movie I've seen in a long time.

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

This is one of the worst movies of all time.

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.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

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

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

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

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.

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

Save your money for something worth.

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

so save your money and watch endgame again.

the story was so predictable and boring and Josephine Langford's performance was the worst , she was so fake and obviously wasn't the best choice to play Tessa.

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

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

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

Breathtaking .



A little cliche if you ask me.

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

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

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

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

An ACTUAL waste of time .

No storyline whatsoever...

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

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

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

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

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

An intense college romance with passion .

Soundtrack packs quite a punch into this intense college romance.

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.

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.

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

Enjoyed it .

It was the worst movie I've ever seen.

" and "Waste of time" reviews.

This movie is a cliche teen romance drama.

Don't waste your time .

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

There was no storyline in the movie whatsoever.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

The intense way they fell for each other was there.

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

And a ton of Cliche characters to boot.

Just seems like another boring teen movie.

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.

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!!!!!!

As bland as it gets .

This movie is such a cliche it hurts.


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

Holy crap this was the most garbage cliche movie ever.

" Such a confusing and strange film.

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

Boring, dull and cliche romance film .

excruciatingly slow and boring .

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

Waste of time and money .

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

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.

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.

Seriously, don't waste your money or time.

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

Intense and beautiful .

A lot of clichées and predictable.

One of the worst movies ive ever watched and it was a complete waste of time.

A cliché movie can be good.

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

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

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

Regardless, it was a good entertaining movie.

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.

Don't waste your money

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 plot and the way it was addit was stunning.

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 is the most cliché movie I've ever seen.

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

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

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

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

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.

*timelines are confusing.

Cliché, boring, bad plot, predictable.

Overall 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.

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


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

Boring af .

but we all really enjoyed it!

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.

Absolutely breathtaking .

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.

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

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.

Really enjoyed it.

The main characters are plain and boring.


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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

There is no storyline - just kissing!

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.

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.

Boring and bland .

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

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

Enjoyed it but left disappointed & empty.

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

ok but save your money .

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

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

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

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.
