  • As I write these words, I feel myself experiencing a loss of consciousness, wondering how this recipe for sugar shock could interest any sentient being over the age of nine. show more

  • Moretz is an appealing young woman whose star is rising. She'll probably have an exceptional career, but If I Stay won't be a highlight. show more

  • The adults fare best. Leonard and Enos have more electricity than the teens do. And the best performance is a low-key, authentic one by Stacy Keach as Mia's grandfather. show more

    Probably a good one for the almost teens. Good story but, for adults, it needs to have a bit more grit and reality.

    Teens will love this story and cry throughout most of it. Great performances by the actors but totally predictable. I wish I would have saved my money and watched on cable.
