Boring plot, boring script, boring teens, boring love triangle, boring ending.

Horrible, predictable, and very cliche, a copy of most American school movies, nothing new, the only thing different would be that the girl is tall than in a boring plot, predictable dialogues, very generic characters, many characters not contribute nothing to the plot, do not spend your time watching this movie

Thirdly, the movie was riddled with cliches and ,at points, was very predictable.

Sadly this movie ended up being extremely predictable and ended in a deeply dissatisfying way.

Practically Unwatchable .

Just what you would expect, a bland and cliche story that doesn't understand teenagers .

Its boring, has almost no objectively good elements to it and is so unenjoyable to watch.

it's not forgettable, has a VERY nice ending while only hitting a 7 on the cliche meter.

It was below average (hence the four star rating) and very cliché, altough not the worst I've ever seen.

The characters were boring and lacked depth.

It sucked, the characters were plain and boring and people fell in love after talking like once.

There was a lot in this film that could have made it really good, but just too many hackneyed story lines, Kind of a dull script, Predictable plot.

Aside from that absolute clownery, the plot was predictable, cheesy, and just stupid.

Thank you to those who care enough about our kids to make something worth watching and not making me cringe.

Boring .

An okay movie but very cliche and predictable .

Movie wanders aimlessly for an hour and a half before reaching the predictable conclusion offering nothing new to the conversations around body positivity, bullying or self acceptance.

Worst movie Ive seen in a while .

This movie was a complete waste of time.

But still, I enjoyed it.

The overall theme about loving yourself was nice especially for teens but it was pretty formulaic in general.

Worst movie ive ever seen.

Cliche border-lining on unrealistic .

A waste of time .

Worst film I've ever watch, so predictable, bad writing, bad acting, all round bad film to be honest!!!!

how pretentious do you have to be to be watching a movie such as this and be sitting there critiquing the accents?!

This is such an awful movie it makes me want to cancel my Netflix subscription, it fails to understand teenagers, high school and the average Netflix user who would waste their time on this bs

And the story line is just so boring.

The plot is too cliche, and the conflicts seems to too forced just to set-up moral value out of the story, thus also compromising some of the character's build-up.

I enjoyed it thoroughly!

Then the character's random genuine heartfelt moment comes in and it's just confusing because now all of a sudden this character has a brain?

Some turns the movie takes are a bit annoying, and the score is too noticeable and tiresome after a while.

My kids enjoyed it.

This is just a movie of Ava being her boring and bland self.

It's a romp - a sweet coming of age movie that does a great job creating some likeable characters and is fun.

The entire movie was so predictable, you could basically guess what they are going to say next.

I just got done watching this movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I found the movie to be very suspenseful and I do not understand the people who are claiming it was predictable.

sweet but bland story .

Of all the bullied identities, it's mind boggling to me that the screen-wright chose tall people.

The characters have no depth, the tall girl lacks personality, she's boring and whiny.

The writing is so cliche and terrible, it feels like Ive seem this story a million times.

Severely underwhelming coming of age film with some really strange choices at times re: parental shame, Cesareans, and stalking friendzoned chumps that can't take a hint.

The ending is so predictable.

(pun intended) The story is engaging.

Jody is so bland I could not care less about where she ends up at the end.

I really enjoyed it and was sad to see so many negative reviews.

Don't waste your time .

Simple and typical highschool movie but the milk crate is insanely mind blowing, this movie shows how a boy will do when he is really in love with a person.

It just feels very cringey and cliché.

Pointless story with some lame dialogue, especially the last monologue given by the lead female character.

The story isn't anything profoundly different, but it is certainly enjoyable.

It's still pretty neat and it may surprise you once or twice even if it is quite predictable overall.

The plot was predictable and subpar and left me dissatisfied with what I was seeking to learn from a film stereotyping tall females.

I have a love hate relationship with coming of age movies and usually I either hate them or love them and this one was no different it didn't have any moments where I really cared about the characters problems and it wasn't funny at and unrealistic at it's finest like it took place in New Orleans and you're telling me in just supposed to believe that there were barely any black people also how was she the tallest in that school have you been to New Orleans there are some y'all men

We really enjoyed it.

Lines and plot too cliche .

Just another coming of age movie.

I thought that the evolution of Stig's character throughout the film was very compelling and even though I feel that Jodi made the right decision in the end, I still felt very sorry for him.

Although there are plot points to wince over, I for the most part enjoyed it, and thought Ava Michelle did a good job in her first leading role.

So predictable and just awful.

So confusing.

This film is cheesy and predictable!

Cliche and boring .

Simple story, Not bad acting, but the movie is kinda slow and not funny at all!!

The movie as a whole was ok and entertaining enough to have in the background while foulding laundry.

Now over all, I think the movie was cute and entertaining.

It was boring, the characters were flat, I didn't feel the slightest bit of sympathy for the main character, the guy she ends up with is a manipulative creep, and it's just a bad movie all around.

I mean, I wouldn't call it my FAVORITE, but it was definitely worth the watch.

It was a waste of time and I was right about the plot.

Not bad at directing, main plot is so inspired but screenplay is too weak & predictable.. .

Me & my gf watched this movie ironically & even then it committed the worst movie sin of all: It was boring.

If you want to waste your time do whatever is less watch this movie.

It's 100percent waste of time.

A little cliche .

Entertaining, wholesome, downright great movie.

Unoriginal & predictable .

This was a really entertaining, wholesome, downright great movie!

And finally, the plot was a bit predictable despite her ending up with Shortcake.

Enjoyed it.

A really beautiful story, but some of the "funny" scenes are actually not so funny, some predictable moments, and the plot is just too fast-moving.

Found the film to be quite enjoyable and just light hearted.

Everything in this movie was unrealistic and too predictable.

I enjoyed it overall.

Teen Romance Cliché .

No plot, cheap morality.

The most predictable movie I've seen.

So cliche.

Unexpected .

It was enjoyable to watch her.

Maybe I would have enjoyed it more is I wasn't a swede myself?

Worst Movie of 2019.

She's boring and whiney.

Was worth the watch!

Predictable happy ending in which, as another lovely trope, the reliable best guy friend who's been pining away this whole time finally wears our main character down and gets a kiss.

I enjoyed it!

The main caracther was so boring and with no personality

But after wasting an hour and forty minutes of my time it became evident that there was an insane overdramatization as well as a poorly designed, predictable, plot to this dull movie.

Our house enjoyed it !!

At first I thought I was going to get bored and it was literally like that for more than 3 classes we were looking at this stupidity that makes no sense.

It was so freaking predictable and the guy doesn't even sound swede.

Good but super predictable .

how many time that I have to watch this cliche sub-plot on teenage films?

The only part that irritated me off about this film is "screenplay" that writen so weak, so predictable and cliche.. when I watched it I just feel like.. Oh c'mon people!!

The editing was also unbearable.
