Nadine narrates her life so far: By age seven, differences between Nadine and her more popular older brother Darian are already obvious.

As a result of her father's death, Nadine's life turns upside down..

So obviously I can't give this film an 'A'. However, I will give it a 'B' for being a very good one. I can definitely see why a lot of people didn't like this movie. It seems like it takes some beating and has the story of a teenager getting their life together. It's hard to tell if the humor is intentional or not. The characters all seem to be gay, because their whole lives are one big teasing and teasing. From the characters like Ty (Hailee Steinfeld) and Lebron (Kendrick). I am not sure if these characters are actually gay because there is something about their personalities that shows that they are very gay. I don't know if the humor is intentionally done or not because I don't see any intent. But then again, the characters are teens and I don't really know what they are doing. One of the characters Lebron says "I am coming out." He says this several times. It seems to me like that character is gay. There is some strange things about this movie that I think most people don't get. If you are not in school and don't have friends, you are going to think the world is upside down. Like the times I think that Lebron, Ty and his friends are outcasts or something. They are only with each other because they are social misfits. But if you are in school and have friends, then you will really enjoy this movie. This is also the reason why I think it is good because they make it so hard for teenagers to be in school, especially with their friends. There is something funny about it. I like the fact that this movie has two different goals. One being to show that teenagers can be gay. And another one is to be funny. I am glad this movie has humor. The acting was great and it just shows that it is really hard to be in school and there is nothing wrong with the world. There are a few other things I can think of to mention. But it seems like the main goal of this movie was to make some people laugh.

I am a teenager and so you can imagine my reaction when I heard the plot and was not too familiar with the characters. I do not know whether it is because the plot is that lame or because it is that dweeby I was just curious to see what happened. It was predictable and not funny. Also, it was just not good. I just wish there were more scenes with Forrest and the guys at school. Also, I did not like the ending, it felt like a cheap trick and the same thing happened in Empire Records. I was also not a fan of the music in this movie. For example, I felt that they had to show the girls leaving the song which was just kind of dumb. The movie is one that I will not watch again because it is not my cup of tea and I did not like it. One thing I will definitely do is save my money for Star Wars VII and I will not see this movie in theaters. At least I won't be forced to pay anything.

I saw this film at the weekend. I was expecting a funny comedy, but it really wasn't that. There were some funny moments, but the humour wasn't in the right places. There were a few funny bits, but not many. The film kept me watching until the end. I really enjoyed it, but I could've done without the whole stupid teen stuff. However, the plot was good and there was a surprising amount of violence.

Tara, I had read the many reviews before I finally got to see it.and all were terrible. I had not read the book, so I was expecting something along the lines of "A Star is Born", but with all the "sex and racism" themes. This movie didn't use the racial and sexual themes, just a small amount of them. I mean, it didn't need it. The movie was focused on the relationship between Mark, Shannon, & Taylor, the friendship between Mark & Joey, and the teens, except for Mark, who was left out. But I liked the fact that it was done with an honest feel, and no pity factor. It was done with a show of a real group of people who had been through a lot together, and it showed a lot of true friendship. And the two scenes in the beginning of the movie, were great. I've watched this movie 10 times since I saw it the first time. I'm sure it will be a film that I will see again, for a long time. I recommend this movie to anyone who has been through a similar situation to me, who wants to feel like she/he is in that movie. Also, a mention for the songs: J. Cole's new song "Big & Rich", and the song "Stars", performed by Shawn Mendes. I would give this movie an A. Michael Keaton, this movie. I'll see it again.

I'm very much aware of the criticism that "the Edge of Seventeen" got from the critics and various audiences alike. But I never saw it on the big screen. And I never saw it with my parents. So I don't really know what they think of it. And then, you know, there are people who have a strong emotional connection to "the Edge of Seventeen". And I'm one of them. So it's not a fair comparison. But I do think this film was very well done. The performances are all very good. Most of the performances were very good. The story is also very good. And I liked that it was different and original. It felt a bit forced at times, but it was the way I always want a film to be. I know it's not a masterpiece. It's not exactly a masterpiece. But it's good. It's good for what it is. And it is also very nice to see John Krasinski back. I think he's amazing. If it wasn't for his performance in the film, I would say this was the best he has ever done. And I don't think he would even be here as he is now. So he was great in this. I thought it was a very sad and touching film. And it reminded me of a lot of times. Like when the boys, Kagan (Kareem Goldsbie) and Foy (Scott Michael Campbell) were going to their car and they were trying to look cool at the store, I had the feeling of watching that scene from a different perspective. I think it's sad. But I also found it very moving. And I think it's also good. I found it very interesting. The music is also very nice. I thought it was very good. I really enjoyed the music. I like that sort of music. It is good. So I thought it was a very good film. But it's not a masterpiece. I think that it's a good film. There's no argument to be made to suggest this is a masterpiece. It is not exactly a masterpiece. But it was good. It was good. I liked it. I enjoyed it. And I liked it a lot. So, I think I will say "the Edge of Seventeen". But don't get me wrong. I think it is a good film. It's a very good film.

I honestly don't understand how anyone can complain about this movie. It's not exactly like the ones from "The Room", but it's a good one. With a concept that's been done before, it still stands up. It's funny in a good way and in an easy way. I could just imagine a family sitting around the dining table, having a good laugh. And if they don't have a family, they will be the one laughing and watching the movie, as the result is so fun. The characters are nice to see in this movie, especially Adam Sandler. He really does deserve to get to the top again. Of course, I'd still recommend "This Is the End". It's the best movie ever made and I also like it a lot. Maybe it'll be even better than "This Is the End".

The film is great! So many ideas, it was great. There were not much in the way of flashy camera work, but that's the movie. The last ten minutes and the end of the film were not as good as the first half, but still very good. Especially when it comes to that second scene between Mary and the doctor, I just loved it. All the actors did a great job. All of them, from the twins to Paul, played their parts perfectly. The movie is worth to be watched. Hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did.

This movie is not the best picture ever, nor is it for teenagers. But for teenagers who find it too hard to grasp complicated emotions and concepts in the real world, this movie will satisfy. They will finally understand what "life's not about beating people" means. There will be no boredom. But for these "somewhat" intelligent ones, there will be more than enough answers to things, such as "is there an afterlife?" and "what's going on with this guy's ghost?". So, you don't have to be a 16-year-old teenager to have a good time.

.BUT I didn't notice until I read this "7" rating. It's the worst film I've seen in ages. I don't even think that's true. It's actually a deep, well-paced comedy that will get the laughs at a high volume (or low volume). The trailers really hype it up, so the few key messages that are very important to the story will be delivered in a way that makes you laugh. I would have liked to have seen a little more depth into the "love" relationship, but it's clear that the writers were trying to leave some questions unanswered. The film could have used some additional talking, but you'll be glad you read this review. It's really hard to take away from a movie that you'll actually like, but this film really makes you laugh. It's what you think it's going to be and then you're surprised at how much you actually liked it. It's a bit of a misnomer to say this is a funny movie. It's not a good movie. It's not a great movie. It's actually a nice, intelligent movie. It's a fun movie and that's what counts. If you get a chance to see it, go see it.

I really enjoyed this movie. It is a comedy, and a lot of this movie was based on my kid's ideas. But I felt this movie was at least better than "Cheaper by the Dozen" (the one that I saw back in 1983). I think you must know that if you do not have kids, you have to look for movies like "Edge of Seventeen" and "Cheaper by the Dozen", because they are similar, but they are not as good as "Cheaper by the Dozen". So, I can understand that some people didn't really enjoy this movie, but I loved it. A lot of the movie is just for fun. It is pretty true to life. And most of the other comments said that this movie was totally disgusting, but I don't think that is true. This movie is really pretty tasteful. It isn't to bad, actually. But I think it is appropriate for children's age. It doesn't really go for dark humor. And although I didn't love the music in the movie, it was actually not bad. I don't think there is much of a difference between the two movies. I think the writers did a good job on this movie. I like this movie because it is funny, but also because it is kind of realistic. It is a little bit low-budget, but it is a great movie. I have never seen a better movie with teenagers, and I don't think there are any teenagers who can't enjoy it. If you really don't like kids, I don't think you need to see this movie, but if you have kids and you don't mind that it is not exactly like real life, I think it is a really good movie.

The script was good but I wasn't really impressed with the whole film. It was okay but not outstanding. There were also a lot of little problems in the film. The last third of the film really dragged. Then the film turned into a little farce. I'm glad they decided to get to the point and not continue on with the "inside joke". I don't think the film was worth the extra 3 minutes I gave it. There were so many things that could have been done with the film and at least done them in a good way. I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone who isn't into all the references and the themes. It is good but not really outstanding. Overall, it's a decent film.

Vaguely reminiscent of the 1950s, a film that is perfect for the children and the tweens, but sadly lacking in the same context of the '50s. The story is of four friends in the eighth grade. They are the "old girls," the "young girls," and the "frolic boys." They create one of the great cinematic games in a school game room, and we watch as they all have to make each of the ridiculous quips that must be made, in order to win a game. Inevitably, one of the "old girls" gives in to the pressure, and decides to quit, giving up her partner. The four losers seek advice from their friends, as to how they should proceed in the game. Meanwhile, the "young girls" are left with the dilemma of following the rules, while the "frolic boys" try to emulate the "old girls" and win the game. It's an extremely simple, if absurd tale that evokes the '50s style of film, but with some pretty amazing technical aspects and talent behind it. The acting is fine, but the film is a bit too much of a milieu of the '50s, to be able to achieve its full potential. But then, this film isn't about taking itself too seriously.

This movie is very funny and very predictable. But, what's funny is the logic of the movie. You don't really know what's going to happen. My comment is not to praise this movie, but I'm not an actor. I'm not a special effects guy. I like a good story and plot.

There's a phrase that goes, "If you don't like the old people in the movie, you don't like the movie." 'Trainspotting' is really an insult. What's the point of this movie, really? If you want a real depiction of the London underground, then watch 'Dinsbury Park' instead. There's a bit more depth, but the characters are interesting enough, and the landscape is amazing. The sub-titles for the original Japanese version (1990) are just dreadful. English is becoming the lingua franca of the planet. British Directors like Danny Boyle are making movies that are almost incomprehensible, but have more depth than 'Trainspotting'. 'The School of Rock', based on a British song, is a surprisingly moving film.

I liked it. The funniest thing about this movie is that it's just plain stupid. The movie is basically about 5 teens who get in trouble for going to a party and then get in trouble for going to the party again. The music, the dialogue, the bad-assery of the teens, and the good-assery of the adults that play themselves all seem to have been done by the same person. It's just a shame that they couldn't manage to pull it off. While it's hard to enjoy a movie that involves high school, it can be done quite well and is something I wouldn't mind watching again. 7/10

I'll start by saying that I know nothing about the real-life story behind this film. I've never read the book, and never have, so I can't make any comparisons. Still, it's been a few years since I saw the movie, and I've recently checked out the online stories and conversation that's followed this film. Now I understand what the movie is about, and the reason for the real-life story. In part, it's a story about a 17-year-old boy's struggle to succeed academically, and his inability to deal with a school bully. Also in part, it's about the consequences of bullying, and the difficult choices a young teenager has to make about using school as a weapon to try and deal with these problems. What I like about this movie is that it makes a big deal about the weight and pressure that these situations place on the teens. It's clear to me that what they felt was similar to what the bullied teen was feeling. The bullies constantly underline the seriousness of their actions, and force this student to become the meanie they're all trying to bully him into. He's forced to feel the weight of the world. He must do something. This does present some issues, but it's really about growing up and figuring out what's important, and what isn't. For a lot of kids, it can be a huge burden. It's about making up for lost time. It's about the importance of education. It's about being able to pick your battles. All the problems that these kids deal with are right there for those who need them. As a result of this, the bullying is a big part of the story. The way that the principal deals with the situation is very real, and handled very well. The moral of the story is one that I think a lot of people could identify with. It's about giving up on life and accepting that life doesn't always go to plan. So many movies tend to do this, but they really don't do it as well as this one. It's all about choosing to accept the things in life that you have the potential to have, and realizing that the school and the school system are not going to do anything about it, and just taking responsibility for your actions, instead of blaming the school and the school system. That's where it's a bit easier for someone to deal with, rather than just locking up and blaming yourself for everything that happens. I've had a couple moments where I felt like I was going to walk out of this movie, but that was because I felt like I could deal with the first act a little better. Overall, I'd give it a 7/10. This is a really well-made movie that's worth a look. If you want to see an older and darker version of this, you could check out the TV show Penny Dreadful. It also suffers from the same problems of something like this happening to a school. It's not as true to life, but the tone is a lot more grim.

When I saw this film, I was really impressed. I thought it was a great comedy. The characters were great, the acting was great, and the story was great. It was funny, exciting, and told a good story. It seemed like a real character-driven film. The only problem I have with the film was the ending. I think it was a little hard to swallow and a little out of left field. I think everyone would've liked the ending better, so I'll talk about the good. I really liked the scene where they broke up the middle-school dance. The camera work is also really great. I like how there's only one shot where the camera shakes in every scene. The best part about this film was the ending. I think the ending was really good, and kind of off-putting. I think if they had stuck to the story a little bit more, this film would've been even better. I really liked this film, and I think you should see it.

You're an average high school senior, normal, but not a total loser. You know everyone in your school. You're just starting to accept who you are. This is where "The Edge of Seventeen" comes into play. You are starting to realize that you're going to end up at a school where there are no seniors. So you have to find the best way to get in so you can do your first senior prank, but don't have any one to go with you. The beginning of the movie is very good and has you in suspense, and helps to build up to this ending. You go back and forth in time, and see how people that are going to be senior students in a few weeks realize the real trouble is already started. The real awkward and terrifying thing about "The Edge of Seventeen" is the fact that your parents don't know what you are. The truth is that your parents have never known what you are really doing for them. I think the key to a good movie is where they find the essence of a person and deal with the emotional conflict and feelings that they must cope with as their kid grows up. I think "The Edge of Seventeen" has that. It's not that scary and in fact I didn't find it to be too bad. It was a good movie. It was okay. I think this is another movie that will keep you interested in learning about life and how to deal with things. You might think about stuff like that once a week.

Do not listen to the criticism on this movie.I give it 7 of 10.I loved the movie and all the actors.They were funny and very real.If you don't like this movie, you didn't understand the movie.If you liked it, you must be younger than 16 years and have watched a lot of movies.If you were a teen when the movie came out, you'll love it.It's a quirky comedy that makes you laugh and put your feet up.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and can't really see why this film wasn't better known. The only real question is, does anyone notice that the language, sex and drug use seem to be a direct reaction to their target audience (teenagers)? It was also interesting to see a young Elle Fanning as a hot-headed teenage punk, and a cool, full-figured Alyssa Milano as a strong, glamorous woman who takes her work very seriously. Yay movie!

Some spoilers. It's a really good movie. It's funny. There's great acting, and the characters are likable. It also stars Seth Rogen, I have to say I like his movies, but this is not the same. If you want to see a movie about growing up in the 60's and how people did stuff like that, skip this one. It's about two teens who meet each other through an odd internet site where they could be discovered. They both seem to have a lot of fun trying to make their mark on the world. But I find it very hard to connect with any of the characters, and there is no real story. There's really no real plot, and I have to wonder why they kept going and going and going. It's a nice film for watching, but it's not the same as other Seth Rogen's movies. In fact, this one isn't a Seth Rogen's movie. This is the Seth Rogen's movie.

The Edge of Seventeen is an under-rated romantic comedy which holds its own against other teen films of the same ilk, such as Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. But where Things to Do in Denver is self-consciously funny, sly, and uplifting, the film of The Edge of Seventeen is sullenly dark, poorly shot, and exceptionally forgettable. The plot revolves around an off-the-grid teenager (Jack Black) who spends his spare time in a mall to do heroin, keeping a diary of his personal life. When he meets a new girl (Ellen Page) in the mall, her connection is all wrong and the two are bound to become friends, especially when the deal-breaker turns out to be a drug dealer. But is it the drug dealing? What the hell is this movie? Well, it has a basic plot, a cliched situation, and pretty much nothing else. It's a romance, an affectionate comedy, and a sci-fi film all rolled into one. So in theory, it works pretty well. The movie has all of the ingredients to be a spectacular romcom, but it falls short of being anything other than.a mediocre romcom. And while Jack Black is very entertaining, it is clear that he is not as adept in the lead role as he would like to think he is. He is, at best, an okay performance. Ellen Page is effective, but can't make you forget she is an actress. And in a movie that needs to portray a theme of drug dealing, it is hard to believe that a major theme of the movie would be drug dealing. Also, it is hard to suspend your belief that a person is running heroin from the corner of their eye when they were a teenager. And in that movie, this character's drug use was treated seriously and it was portrayed in a way that made you like the character, not like the character was an alcoholic. But The Edge of Seventeen is more of a charming romantic comedy, and it relies more on its central character and simple over-the-top humor. The script is forgettable, the acting is above-average, the pacing is off, the special effects are impressive. But it is a damn enjoyable movie. I was genuinely intrigued by the movie. It does take you to places and you know you are in for a good time. This is a one-note movie that is sweet and sweet, then you expect a fourth wall break from the script and everything unravels. But no, you see nothing, you're not surprised. The characters are dull, and it is evident that they are not all memorable. So when the "things" happen, it's not all that interesting. And when things happen that are a little like falling in love, the movie is just about as sappy as you can get. But there is some character work here that is good. Jack Black is good, as he was always good, and while it is difficult to believe that an off-the-grid teenager would have the same commitment as a college graduate, Black was more than capable of the part. But Ellen Page is good. And even though her character is more than a little uninteresting, Page is such an actress that you can't help but like her. Most of the jokes are too forced and banal to work. The writing is also inconsistent, with some moments of brilliance, some moments that are cheesy and cheap, but the film's most memorable moments are the one-liners from every character in the movie. And that is something which is lacking in most romantic comedies these days. So while you may find yourself laughing at the many the-funny-things-come-together jokes, you might be disappointed when the movie isn't funny anymore. But when it's funny, you're not surprised that the plot didn't just unravel, you're surprised that there isn't a break in the script. So to sum up
