The long awaited adaptation of Josh Green's novel “The Fault in Our Stars” finally hit the big screen this weekend and fans are flocking to their local theater in droves. “Stars” centers on Gus and Hazel (played by Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley), two teenage cancer patients who unexpectedly fall in love after meeting at a local support group. Directed by Josh Boone, “Fault” has earned positive reviews with an 82% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 69 grade on Metacritic.
The bigger news, however, is “Fault's” performance at the box office where it's expected to earn over $50 million over its first three days. A figure almost unheard of for a romantic drama. HitFix's own Drew McWeeny gave a thumbs up to “Stars” in his official review, but that doesn't mean the rest of the editorial staff weren't willing to be blunt about the pros and cons of this pop culture phenomenon.
With that in mind, check out our best and worst of “The Fault in Our Stars” in the embedded gallery below. Even if you love the movie, you might find it hard to argue with some of our cons.
