Trivia

Director Marc Webb expressed interest in the project a full 12 years before it hit theaters. He was committed to directing The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel first, though upon completion of those two films he agreed to direct the "The Only Living Boy in New York". See more »

Goofs

The letter sent to Thomas by the Penguin Group at the end of the film has a typo in it: where it reads 'I with you every success with your book...' should actually be 'I wish you every success with your book'? Didn't expect that from the 'Penguin Group'. See more »

Quotes

Thomas Webb: You have 2 apartments?

rich and beautiful people have problems too
16 September 2017 | by kidkameleonSee all my reviews

My girlfriend dragged me to the cinema to see this flick, and when she fell asleep after 15 minutes, and despite not being a drinker, I wish I had smuggled in more than one beer. Like most films and series it is set in a fantasy world most of us don't have access to. A boy who's biggest problem seems to be getting away from his loaded dad and depressed 'don't know what to do with my free time' mother, and which woman to pursue. The stunningly beautiful one, or the stunningly beautiful one. Granted, I'm simplifying, and the story does build, but I just cannot fake any interest in these type of ivory tower characters anymore.
