3SMReviews: If I Stay

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews

Yes some of the dialogue is cringe-inducing, and sure the movie totally changes the big speech at the end by the boyfriend, missing the point entirely that was made in the book.  But despite all that, I really enjoyed this movie much more than I thought I would* and particularly enjoyed the happy family scenes.**  However, the realization that songs that were hip and cool when I was in college have become campfire sing alongs was a harsh reminder that I’m the same age as the parents, not the teenagers.

Cost:  some part of $8.50 because I used the last of my gift card.
Where watched:  Regal Lloyd Cinema 10 with Tara, Perri and Sunita.

*Though admittedly, I went in with low expectations.
**The parents are perfectly cast and So. Much. Fun.

    Okay, I have to know what songs they were singing around the campfire!

    My friend who got pregnant in HS, her son is in his early 20s now and just had a baby with his wife, so my friend is a grandma! Can you imagine being a grandma at our age?

    These are realizations that are not so fun. I have not read yet, so I cannot watch. Glad you enjoyed it.
