The "SeaWorld" scene from the novel is not seen in the movie. This is because the movie "Blackfish" had made people rethink SeaWorld and captivity. If the SeaWorld scene were in the movie, people would possibly boycott and the box office would be low. The screenplay writers decided it would be best to not put the SeaWorld scene in. See more »

Hints of Margo
Another teen movie, another movie of coming of age and finding love or at least your destiny (not a lot to ask for then). But while that may sound sarcastic, the movie itself is really good. Nicely written, especially the dialog and the characters, this can be real fun to watch for a lot of people.
Now, what I haven't mentioned yet, is the fact, that I haven't read the novel. So I can't say anything about how you'll react to it, if you have or how accurate it is in adapting the material. Nevertheless, the acting is spot on and the message is delivered, even if it's being soft on the edges at times, but it's a movie, it's allowed to do that. Silly, fun and maybe with some bad advice depending on how you read some things that happen ...
