Info

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge, he follows. After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Quentin arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Quentin soon learns that there are clues, and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer Quentin gets, the less he sees of the girl he thought he knew.

Paper Towns Audience Reviews

TrueJoshNight Truly Dreadful Film
Voxitype Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.
Mandeep Tyson The acting in this movie is really good.
Bob This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
HeavenlyCreatures Paper Towns is a bland story with a uninteresting and unlikable main character (Margo) who continues to be the main focus through the whole of the story line. I went to see this film in cinema and came out feeling robbed of the money I paid for my ticket. Paper Towns may have been better suited as a straight to DVD release as it did not have the magic to be released into cinema. All characters failed to be likeable or remotely endearing.
Phil Ingrouille First time I saw Paper Towns, I loved it; bought the blu-ray, and everything was good with the world. But soon enough I got rid of it. I've recently rebought it, but it's still not perfect.The story focuses on Q, whose been madly in love with his childhood friend Margo, who over the years, has grown further and further away from him, and has gone on a number of wild adventures of her own. After one night of pranking her former friends, Margo seems to have disappeared for good, and Q is on a journey with his friends radar and Ben to find her.To put it simply, Nat Wolff and Cara Delevigne are the best part of this film. Their interactions just feel so real to me. I'd put the last scene of them together on par with something like the ending of 'Her', it's so simply but so effective. Also, like 'Her', it has a bittersweet-ish ending, which I enjoy. I also really like some of the main music in this movie. "Forget the Miracle ever happened" is a great theme and I love how throughout the film there's different styles of it to fit the mood.The film is competently made, with a lot of decent pacing. The acting is also good. The problem with the story is sadly a large chunk of the middle act; it feels so slow. The middle is of course Q and his friends travelling across the country to find Margo, but there's not enough interesting stuff happening to keep me that engaged. Also I just don't think the main three actors have that great of a chemistry together. Something feels out of place, and it's either of those. There's humour littered throughout and I enjoy the character Ben getting 'the girl of his dreams', and I think the relationship between Radar and his girlfriend Angela is cute. I just think the movie picks up WAY more when Q and Margo reunite at the end, and it's really a shame cause the other characters could have been developed a bit more. Also, some of the music they chose for this film is annoying, and it made the film come across like some wannabe art-house project.Overall, it's a good movie, and even though there are STILL parts I skip past because of the awkwardness and straight up cringe of them, mainly, the Ben character, there are a lot of scenes that still make it a fun watch. I'm giving it a 7 out of 10
Diones_Santana_Critical The books of John Green is a success that's for sure! But and its adaptations for movies? The guilt and the stars is a successful book in sales worldwide, with the story of Hazel Grace, a girl with cancer who struggled to live because of your cancer and get to know the great love of your life, "Augustus Waters" beautiful and charming Story Read more here in your books John always treats the young love and once again he hits in full in "paper towns".We know Quentin Jacobsen (Nat Wolff), a child who soon begins a love for your Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevingne) Jacob as it is called by your friends and acquaintances grow next to Margo and lives the antics and crazy things, on a good day he refusing to take her to their "investigations" that for your sadness she doesn't call you more in the future. The years pass and Margo is spectacularly beautiful. After all we are talking about the beauty of Man Delevingne, Jacob's love by Margo distance every day over the years and he ends up living your little world with their friends focusing on studies.He ends up accepting your normal life and routine that lives to spend time trying to forget once and your beloved, until one day, Margo appears in your window and takes you to do nine missions in one night getting even if your ex-boyfriend He spends his best moments throughout your life beside your beloved where he admires the each moment, the next day, Margo and unknown vanishes leaving clues, that Jacob had tried to uncover where your loved one was.Film demonstrates that appearances can be deceiving and a platonic passion and vicious may be surprised, and the maturation of a young if sets of their decisions, and that friends is the source of new energies, which surprises even though with a slight quick passage where proves that J Ohn Green can surprise and even bring more beautiful stories.
Schlichte Toven I didn't really want to write a review - I wanted to write a comment on the discussion boards, but they're gone, so here we are.I watched this on Canadian Netflix because the availability of non-B movies on that site is not great. I hadn't read the book, because I know it's one of those coming-of-age stories I hate. When I saw the scene in which one of the guys looks up the bio of that folk singer on his phone, I was sure I knew where the movie was going - the article on the folk singer had said he'd died of Huntington's, which I knew was a genetic condition that often appears in the person's 30s and inevitably results in a slow and terrible death. So I thought, oh, that's why Margo is so reckless and apt to give advice about how other people should be living their lives, she knows she has this condition and is going to have a short time to live. So the whole time, I was expecting Q to search and search for her only to find that she'd lived it up madly and then killed herself to prevent slow deterioration, or that Q would never find her but would learn years later that at the onset of symptoms she'd jumped off a mountainside or something. She seemed like the type of person who would do that. And then Q, instead of becoming an oncologist, would become a researcher in neurological diseases and this would be the legacy she left him.Instead, she turned out to be an ordinary brat who ran away in order to "find" herself, not having graduated high school. Boring. Which leads me to my second point of irritation with this movie, which is that, either the author has completely forgotten what it was like to be 17, or he was also a spoiled brat. These teens all have cars, no jobs, unlimited cash, and their parents are perfectly fine with them ditching school without notice and driving across the country. They all have way more independence and disposable income than seems likely. Margo is living by herself in some hick town. What happens after the money runs out and all her former friends have finished high school, and she doesn't have a degree and can't get a job? I hate the rosy picture of the three friends heading their separate ways to new adventures at the end of the movie. What would the average life course of real people be? Yes, some would become oncologists and spend 80 hours a week working and rarely get to see their fancy houses, some would become journalists for CNN and travel the world, but most will be ordinary and get married, get an uninteresting job to pay the bills, and spend their weekends trying to get their squealing infants to stop crying long enough to pick up diapers at Walmart. And then get divorced. I'm just being realistic here.The movie has a typical upper-middle-class American "follow your muse, discover your true self" underlying message that is very unoriginal and very uninspiring.
