Another kid-dying-of-cancer movie. If you liked The Fault in Our Stars you'll probably like this.
I liked Fault but this was just more of the same, only different kids.
Olivia Cooke, who plays the dying girl, is adorable but she doesn't have much to do, even though it's all about her. Thomas Mann does a great job as Greg, the "Me" in the story (right, in the picture below), as does RJ Cyler as Earl (left). But the rest of the cast are distracting caricatures whose quirks serve no other purpose than to
And then there's Greg's narration, and all along he keeps telling you she's not going to die, but she does. So what's the point in that?
The last act was sweet and almost made it worth staying, but it wasn't easy slogging through the rest of it.
Three stars out of five for Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.
