The Fault In Our Stars – Sweet but Sad

faultinstarsHazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. ~ IMDb

This movie was better than I thought it was going to be. It was sweet but very sad. Some parts were funny, especially when Augustus mentioned stormtroopers and they were watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I liked that. Shailene Woodley was very good in this movie. She made me think she really was Hazel. My favorite scene of the entire movie was when they told Monica’s mom that they had 2 dozen eggs and that she should go back inside. And then she did! It was funny. I know this movie was supposed to be sad, but I’m not good with empathy. I didn’t cry at all, but everyone else did. They cried a lot.
