I thought I wouldn't like it, because it tends to be that if a movie has several famous actors, it won't be that good (e.g Valentine's Day), but I actually liked it and thought that it was really good.
Emma Stone's character Olive was great! She was smart, whit a great sense of humor. Also I gotta mention the "Pocket Full of Sunshine" scene, it was one of my favorites, it was so funny and seemed so... real.
I liked the construction of the movie - it wasn't typical teen comedy, with cheap jokes. It had witty dialogs and clever lines such as the "Kinsey 6 gay", it had book and movie references - I loved it.
Also, Penn Badgley was nice as always - his character was friendly, polite and just extremely awesome (the ending!). I'd probably think that he did great even if he'd play in a bad movie... That's how much I like him.
And I'm gonna finish the review with a quote from the movie, that couldn't be more true:
"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life."
