    The concept is really good! It feels very rushed and disorganised though.

    This really was a great movie, never mind that its story-line might have seemed implausible.

    Something just felt very off when watching the movie. I am not sure whether it is the horrible execution of the plot or the lack of enthusiasm from the actors who are supposed to be "in love". Overall, the movie felt subpar compared to any other romantic movie about destiny and fate.

    After enjoying the book, I had high hopes for this movie. It wasn't necessarily bad, but certainly not great. The actors look way older than their characters, and it just seemed unrealistic and a little slow and unsatisfying. I definitely recommend the book much more than the movie!

    The book was beautifully written, with overall stunning execution. However, the movie adaption missed the mark. Many of the details that made the novel amazing were left out of the film and this brought down the movie's quality.

    This movie is very cute. I liked the storyline. It was funny and adventurous and is perfect for any date night.

    The true stars of this immersive romance include - Autumn Durald's gorgeous shots of New York City, sewn together by editor Joe Landauer, Herdís Stefánsdóttir‘s indulgent score, and diverse leads... It left me convinced the couple's sparks were, forged by fate in the space of time that the sun rose and fell upon the Statue Of Liberty (the story's ironic ideals of immigration revolve around).

    I tried really hard to find one thing to like about the movie but between the cheesy script, cliche love story, terrible acting and predictable ending, I just couldn't do it. This is one of the most passionless romantic movies I've ever seen. The actors don't have chemistry together and every moment feels forced and ingenuine. With everything going on with her family it's completely illogical for Natasha to be doing any of what she did in the movie and the entirety of the "falling in love in one day" storyline is so stupid in comparison to the seriousness of the immigrants getting deported storyline. The Sun Is Also a Star lacks common sense in every possible way.

    The book was very beautifully written; the writers for the movie should have trusted Yoon. They really butchered or skipped over some of the best dialogue. Yoon made a teen-romance novel so much more compelling with her real contemplation of Big Questions of humanity, and without that genuine discussion of complex ideas, the movie is just another, overly-cheesy teen romance.

    Dear Hollywood...This is seriously the slowest dumbest movie ever!!! My eyes and especially my ears are dying and wonder why I would put myself. The end
