"The best thing about now, is that there's another one tomorrow."

The Spectacular Now was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the two scribes who were also responsible for 2009's indie smash (500) Days of Summer (let's forget about The Pink Panther 2). In a perfect world, all romantic comedies should be penned by this pair, as their scripts are full of raw honesty and ... read more

Surprisingly, it turned out to be a nice movie, kind of reminded me 'A Walk to Remember'. Yes, it was a romantic tale set in a similar fashion along with a subplot like family issues resolved in a meaningful story. An incredible cast, especially the combination of lead two worked awesomely. These two rising stars showed their worth by giving wonderful performances.

This Movie Diary -spiel within, not spoiler free (60 movies items)

"I was not expecting this to be a good movie. The acting from the two main leads was basically excellent, especailly Shailene Woodley. Loved the first half of the movie. The 2nd half, meh. Just kind of dumb drama and way too simplistic revelations about the now vs. the future. But there is a realness and and an honesty and a sweetness in the first half. I give that part 7/10, and the rest of it like 2/10. -I wish they had done more with her character, made her a little stronger. comments while "

" I have no idea why my expectations from the film were so enormous. It was basically not so great, I thought it would be.I guess that's is the reason it was a big letdown. I have not felt any chemistry between the main characters and both came across as unlikeable. Their characteristics are underdeveloped. The boy supposed to be free and careless but he was just a cliché of, honestly ,the majority of teenagers. He was not really funny to make him so popular, just a douche bag. In addition, th"

The movie portrays an unexpected relationship between a charming, popular, but a careless high school boy and an intelligent girl geek. They are totally opposite in character, but shares similar family difficulties and that makes them to hang out. As the times goes on, the relationship thickens with a strong connection. The school nears the end and the future plans are what stands between them tearing apart. How they r” read more

“"The best thing about now, is that there's another one tomorrow."

The Spectacular Now was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the two scribes who were also responsible for 2009's indie smash (500) Days of Summer (let's forget about The Pink Panther 2). In a perfect world, all romantic comedies should be penned by this pair, as their scripts are full of raw honesty and tender humour, eschewing a Hollywood approach to present a realistic rom-com tale that manages to be both satisfying and entertaining. Based on the acclaimed novel by Tim Tharp, and directed by relative newcomer James Ponsoldt, The Spectacular Now is simply enchanting. Most every scene throughout the movie's 95-minute duration possesses such a natural disposition that it often feels like we're watching” read more
