Even though it is geared for teenagers I thought it was a very good movie. I totally enjoyed it.

This movie is a good example of a stereo-type High School. It's an amazing movie that shows how labels can become a problem and how when you have true friends they love you. It also has an amazing sound track!

Solid watchable movie with a good cast. Attacks a number of coming-of-age issues (maybe a bit too much considering they were supposed to be high school kids), with an unexpected twist at the end that I felt was not necessary and detracted a bit.

A good teen movie (finally!) that is engaging but predictable. The acting is quite good and the direction also. Teens will love it for sure.

Charlie's family is mostly warm and supportive, but they also have their share of dysfunction. Chbosky does not shield the audience from emotionally wrenching details of Charlie’s early childhood. If you like stories where bad things never happen to good people, this movie is not for you. It's not a total downer, though. Charlie is a super charming character. He’s smart and funny and prone to see things other people don’t notice. I found myself rooting for him to find his place in the world. After many ups and downs, including psychological breakdowns, Charlie assures us that even though life is tough and things won’t always go his way, he’s fine, just fine. And so are we. Chbosky wrote and directed the movie version of his novel. I preferred the book, but that’s probably because I watched the movie on the same day I finished reading the book, so I kept thinking of all the things the movie left out. If you plan on watching the movie, I recommend either watching it before reading the book, or watching it several months after you finish reading the book.
