She has great chemistry with Cole Sprouse, though the writing felt far more blatantly formulaic from his mouth than it did with Richardson.

It does show how terrible CS is and I commend it for that but we all found it boring and teh characters unrelatable.

I wasn't going to see this but then when every 14 year old girl walked out of the theater sobbing I thought I would see it.

Five Feet Apart is a film that has got its heart in the right place but it's hard to ignore that when the film suffers from erratic character development, melodramatic dialogue, slow pacing and a constant assault of various YA cliches.

Save your money.

Too predictable and sappy .

I loved almost everything in the movie, the topic discussed is not consumed a lot in cinema, people with a deadly disease and how they live, life between hope and falling apart, The funny scenes were well used to make the movie more exciting.

God, I can go to a super market for a boring and tiring shopping tour every day.

Too cliche.

I feel compelled to write this review for all of those guys who get dragged along to see some cheezy romance flick by the wife or girlfriend and can barely make it through without trying to duck into the adjacent theater for something action oriented.

There was a scene that was purposefully dragged out for the purpose of making the audience uncomfortable in a completely unnecessary way.

Maudlin, cliched, predictable, goofs, ludicrously oblivious to medical procedures, policy and real life.

However, the movie was terribly rushed but was drawn out.

It was just too predictable for me to really get excited about.

Falling in love while balancing on the edge of the death sentence is a very emotional subject.

(even though he typically likes chick-flicks and some romances, hubby was bored with this one) 6.8 starts/10

Slow moving and predicatable .

Just as sappy and predictable as any one of these "sick teens" movies can get .

All three of us were bored to tears with it.

This is such a lovely movie i enjoyed it throghly go for it guys 👍👍

Predictable .

Worth watching,such a hidden gem !!!

She breaks free from all of the painfully cliched teen sick coming of age elements to give a star turn as Stella.

It really is sappy and very formulaic.

The film goes through the motions after a while and some of the plot points are predictable.

As for the parents, they were okay, but I felt that for something as intense as the themes in this movie, some more involvement would be seen.

Really enjoyed it.

At the end of the day, the film is worth the watch despite the flaws primarily because of Haley Lu Richardson's absolutely charming performance.

It was very predictable and I feel like they threw in Poe's death just for the shock value, there was literally no point in it.

DISLIKES:Predictable Cheesy At Times Scientific Stretches The Parent Components.

There were enjoyable and touching moments though.

Will's last words when they parted were extremely cliche, not touching.

The plotting is thoroughly predictable and if you seen the trailer you know where the film is going.

Stunning .

I found this film to be predictable, poorly written and incredibly cliché.

Engaging .

There aren't really any risks taken and you're not going to get anything new, making the story very predictable at times.

I really enjoyed it.

What a waste of time and money that will only appeal to those interested in a story of this type, obliviously ignorning all the plot holes.

It's very cliche and formulaic.

This was extremely cliche.

I found it hard to get invested as the events unfolded in a very predictable and inorganic way.

The movie was not bad, but it was very slow moving, repetitive and you never got the feeling you really knew the characters.

Although this movie was amazing, I felt that the plot was a bit predictable.

Sad, depressing, frustrating yet interesting and engaging insight into the lives of several teens who are battling illness.
