Paper Towns

© 2015 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation

★★★½

"Screenwriters Scott Neustadter’s and Michael H. Weber’s often half-baked tinkering with Green’s original story – far from adding up to a wholly convincing book, it may be worth noting – does a disservice not only to the novel but indeed also to the film itself. In attempting to right several of the book’s 'wrongs', Neustadter and Weber have created an awkwardly jumbled movie that cuts corners inconsistently, that shifts the focus of the narrative without accounting for the chain reaction this causes, and whose morals are curiously scattered all over the place."

Ganze Kritik auf The Zurich English Student (online einsehbar).
