Better than I thought
7 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before seeing this movie I was on the fence about being a One Direction fan. They were very teen-bopperish and I only liked their mainstream songs that I heard on the radio. But I decided to go see the movie and had to literally almost drag my best friend along with me since I didn't want to go alone. Anyways I saw the movie and came out loving the boys. I still wasn't really into their music after it, though. But what I enjoyed was seeing behind the scenes of what their job really entails and their rise to fame. The parts with their family were cool because as an average joe you don't usually get a look into musicians lives (unless they have reality television or something like that). I'm fifteen so I was definitely in the target age range but I still feel this movie was way better than the low scores most people on this site have given it. Sure if you are older and like different music this movie probably won't resonate with you like it did me, but I definitely don't think it deserved being called crap" or "not worth the money". I loved it and have talked to several people (adults included who tagged along with their daughters/nieces/cousins/girlfriends) have liked it as well.
