  • Richard Roeper

    Director Josh Boone does a wonderful job of celebrating the sentimentality without shying away from the tough moments. The pacing, music and editing are all first-rate.

  • Lawrence Toppman

    The Fault in Our Stars beautifully captures the hesitancy, shyness masked by outward confidence, feelings of unworthiness and quiet intensity of teenagers in love.

  • Diane Garrett

    The Fault in Our Stars may not show the true messiness of cancer, but it does grapple with death and the ability to survive great loss. Maybe that's enough truth for one movie.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The movie is well-written, well-acted, acerbic, funny and wisely observed. Fans of the book will be glad to hear it is faithful to Green's tale.

  • Drew McWeeny

    The details are what matters, and the script by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, adapted from the well-loved novel by John Green, is very smart and fairly unsentimental, which works to the material's advantage.

  • Kimber Myers

    The Fault in Our Stars wins points for being more complex and stylish than most similar films feel they need to be. Most movies with this target audience are maudlin and manipulative, but Boone's film never feels like it's trying too hard to win our tears—or our laughter.

  • Anna Smith

    Despite a few missteps this is a spirited, touching romance and Shailene Woodley’s best performance yet. Divergent fans after a weepie need look no further.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Though supported by Woodley’s subtle narration, The Fault in Our Stars is relentlessly outward. That’s part of the book’s inspiring touch, and even if some of the supporting cast comes off as merely functional onscreen, the core of the tragedy comes to life in a heartbreaking way.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    When the time comes for suffering, the pain of watching her is mingled with the pleasure of a performance that transcends contrivance. This young actress is the real, heart-piercing thing.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Hazel and Augustus will live in film lore because of the young actors who play them.

    Time Full Review
  • Tom Shone

    The film works on only one level, but so completely on that level that the rest doesn’t seem to matter: Woodley and Egort have terrific chemistry.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The layered, tuned-in adaptation by Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter avoids calculated sentiment.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    While The Fault In Our Stars is more pastel watercolor than hard-edged drama, it’s still hugely warm and winning, thanks in large part to Boone’s unfussy, wistful direction.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    The film has enough charm and humor to keep it appealing to a wide audience, and dumbing things down doesn’t feel particularly smart or canny, and proves to be a minor distraction to an otherwise majorly entertaining feature. Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Elgort’s performance is more mannered than Woodley’s open-faced, direct line to the heart, but it works.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Maybe it's generational: In a movie about teens, it's the teens who should rule. And they do. With certainty. With laughter. And with tears - buckets and buckets.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The ultimate feel-good movie about feeling bad. And within those limits, it succeeds all too well.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The acting is top-notch, the characters are three-dimensional, and the dialogue is sharp and witty.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Best of all, the film never makes its characters into stoic or tragic heroes, choosing instead to highlight what makes them human — their hopes, their fears, their anger, the way they learn to live with knowing they’re going to die.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Green made the wise choice to be funny in telling his sad story.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It's nothing you'd ever want to put yourself through twice, and yet it's effective in the moment. Shrewdly prefabricated and yet lovingly assembled, it is, in short, the most beautifully made cynical thing I've ever seen.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    A wise, warm, funny and touching romantic drama.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Good movies are made out of great books all the time, and to fault Fault for not living up to its inspiration isn’t much more fair than dismissing the novel on the grounds that it sounds, superficially, like "Love Story" for millennials. As with infinities, some successes are just bigger than others.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    You get compassion and intelligence instead of cracker-barrel homilies. And you get mesmerizing performances.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    I couldn't help wondering what kind of spiky unpredictability a "Say Anything" - era John Cusack would have brought to the character — with or without the requisite Peter Gabriel song.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    What sustains the film through the rockier times are its challenging themes, offering real issues for the young protagonists to wrestle with, rather than whether anyone will be carded trying to buy beer.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The film does, however, have the best weapon in the world against the perception of slickness: an actress without a smidgen of actressiness.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The Fault in Our Stars is manipulative as can be, pulling out all the stops — kids with cancer — in its attempt to bring the tears. And you know what? It works.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    The greatest strengths of the film clearly come from Green’s novel, which resolutely refuses to become a cliched cancer drama, creating instead two vibrant, believable young characters.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Director Josh Boone is hardly the most distinctive cinematic stylist, but he’s smart enough to let his scenes linger for a few beats longer than most mainstream directors would, and seems to trust his actors to carry their own dramatic weight.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    The fault is not in the stars -- they're fine -- it's in the way they're put through what amounts to emotional overkill.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Boone’s unobtrusive style takes cues from the subdued nature of the material, but there’s little about the movie that makes the filmmaking stand out. Instead, it derives its chief strengths from a series of efforts to take the drama seriously, mainly embodied by Woodley’s onscreen investment in it.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Intelligent and earnest, The Fault in Our Stars works well enough to keep a doubter from feeling mugged by sentiment.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Shailene Woodley, already a subtle and rangy actress, easily carries the film as Hazel.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Woodley and Dern breathe a ghost into the machine. Willem Dafoe has fun, albeit not too much, in a brief, vital role as a creepy writer. Most crucially, the words that survived from Green’s novel did so for a reason.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Fault in Our Stars doesn't quite capture the discreetly twisted humor, or the muted anger, of Green's book, and its problems can be attributed to a constellation of little annoyances rather than any one serious, North Star–size flaw.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    I expected, even wanted to cry at The Fault in Our Stars, or at least choke up a little. Yet the transparent eagerness of this movie to break hearts, through means not entirely justifying that end, always pulled me back.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For all the film’s best intentions — and a finely tuned performance from the ever-better Woodley — for me The Fault in Our Stars never entirely found its way out of Sparks territory.

    Slate Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Fault is at heart a full-throttle, by-the-numbers tearjerker.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Woodley is an ace at handling laughter through tears — "my favorite emotion," as a character in "Steel Magnolias" once said. She improves with each new film, even when the films themselves aren't much.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    The film version of the best-selling novel The Fault in Our Stars feels emotionally inert, despite its many moments that are meant to put a lump in our throats. Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Though it is a tragic love story, it is also a perfect and irresistible fantasy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Sweet, cute to the point of cutesy.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • David Lee Dallas

    It takes few chances, frequently using sass as a smokescreen, hiding what's unoriginal and cheaply sentimental about this story behind a veil of witticisms about oblivion and "cancer perks."

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    This movie is so tone-deaf it would only make sense in Vincent van Gogh’s missing ear.
