About this movie

When the eccentric girl next door runs away just before graduation, her lovesick neighbor sets out to find her. Toward that end, he tries to learn as much about her as possible, but in reality he learns a great deal more about himself than the mercurial object of his unrequited affection.

A completely flat, paper movie. At best a bunch of cliches strung together without meaning or purpose. At worst, a complete waste of time. Of course, the book is almost always better than the movie so I went in with low expectations. Still, I was sorely disappointed. In this case, the movie not only missed the depth and detail of the book (which is common and expected), but also any redeeming elements of the characters or story.

You'll shouldn't expect him to find the girl he wants and expect everything to go as planned. That's a part of life, well go far for the things/person we love to find out it wasn't really worth it, but in the end it was an adventure and something we'll learn from. You just gotta accept it.

But this movie made me want to get shwiffty on my tablet. Idk why ,im being honesty. Its almost insulting because its as if mature writers tried to write as if they were 2 generations they're junior , so it came across insincere and inauthentic. There's zero emotional involvement and I'm an emotional guy. It just is a big miss. :/
