Everything, Everything (2017)

#EverythingEverything #Romance 😍

Fasten your seatbelts readers because this one is going to be interesting! Now, if you’ve been following me, you know this is my first romance movie thus far. I’m not wowed to say the least.

Everything, Everything is young adult romance film based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Nicola Yoon. The movie is narrated by Maddie, a severely ill teenager who has not left her house in 17 years. New neighbors move in and the guy next door is really cute (by movie standards). Blah blah blah!

Okay, let us begin. This movie drops every single romance cliche possible and really blurs the line between reality and corny. It was almost as if the director watched every single romance movie and said “Okay, let’s put it all right here in this one” and everybody got on board.

The movie lacks the element of surprise because we pretty much know how it ends once Olly, boy next door, moves in. I mean, let’s be honest, some text messages and a one time face to face encounter makes this girl want to abandon all her smarts and die for this guy who she even says doesn’t like to talk about certain things in his life! 😒 Right, you get me!

Now, some of you may think I have a heart of stone but I do not. Upon first watching this movie I did the “oohs” and “aahs” like all romance movies make you do when you watch them but predictability, cliches and unbelievable scenarios really take away from what could have made the movie beautiful. For example, no Boy in the real world would ever put that many pictures of the ocean, of all things, on the side of someone’s house! Also, I don’t get why she was lying to her mom about the boy next door. It’s not like she has that many people to talk to so you would think talking to her mom would be comfortable, right?

I HATE HER MOM FOR STEALING HER LIFE AWAY! I mean, how selfish of you to make your daughter think that she’s sick so she never leaves! 🤢🤮

Moving on….

One thing I do love is the awkwardness the characters have upon meeting each other for the first time. The chemistry on screen is quite convincing as I can feel the uncomfortableness in the room but love after a handstand, yeah, no.

Rating: 2.5/5 ⭐️⭐️✨
