| The Fault Is Not in Our Stars, But in Ourselves??
The Fault in Our Stars was good. It was funny and certainly heart gripping. I thought Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort did a great job. Overall the story itself was magnificent, albeit there were several faults in the film itself.

The editing was awkward at times and there were noticeable contradictory mistakes that I will not dwell on other than to say (without spoiling anything) that there is a teleporting basketball trophy... See if you can spot it!! I also felt that the framing was too narrow at times and some of the two frame shots were unnecessary and distracting. My last and largest problem was that there is a huge difference in what works in a book and what works on film. Some scenes can feel odd – and that is because they are out of place. In addition, the themes could have been much stronger and left us in really thinking. Sadly the film did not quite make it.

I may be focusing too much on the negatives. I did rather enjoy the film and thought the book was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone contemplating. Enjoy!

Trivia

Shailene Woodley wrote impassioned letters to author John Green and director Josh Boone. "If I'm passionate about something, I'll do everything I can to try to be a part of it," Woodley asserts. Although Green didn't initially picture Woodley for the part, he "was blown away" when she read for him. "We were all crying. It was actually sort of bad," he laughs. "But it was hers from that moment on."


Quotes

Hazel Grace Lancaster: I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it the way they do in movies and romance novels, where beautiful people learn beautiful lessons, where nothing is too messed up that can't be ...


Goofs

When Hazel is reading the email from Van Houten, the text superimposed on the screen is missing three commas. When we see the email on the laptop screen right after this, the commas are there.


Crazy Credits

The 20th Century Fox opening is in dark and once it finishes its course, it heads to the sky of twinkling stars.


Alternate Versions

Extended version contains 5 additional scenes with 1 alternate scene as follows:

  • When Hazel tells her mother that she is going to Amsterdam, Frannie consents but wants her to see the doctor. Hazel evades the question of whether she's in relationship with Gus. The next morning, both mother and daughter visit Dr. Maria who has reservations about her health and says that she would approve if someone who is familiar with her condition accompanies Hazel for the trip - Hazel suggests her mother for that.
  • When Gus messages her, Hazel simply switches off the phone.
  • The "grenade talk" between Gus and Hazel is not as serious in tone than in the theatrical version.
  • Following the "grenade talk", Gus and Hazel talk about finding the most creative title for their classified ad for the swing. Gus admits of liking her but they just shake hands.
  • John Green's cameo is longer here. The little girl that Hazel meets in the airport asks her about the tubes on her nose. The man (Green) wants to apologize, but Hazel explains the whole thing and even allows her to try it. She thanks Hazel and then leaves with him. Gus' hands are wet so he wipes it with her jacket.
  • When Gus is driven to the hospital in an ambulance with Hazel accompanying her, he asks her to either tell a story or a poem. She recites poem 'The Red Wheelbarrow'.
