The movie is quite repetitive but interesting. I disliked the ending of the movie but enjoyed the story line.

I agree. I think some books work incredibly well as a novel but do not translate well to film...for me this is one of those movies. But I loved the novel and would highly recommend it if you haven’t read it yet.

I've been wondering if I should watch this or not. I loved the book. Sometimes movies are a big letdown and the trailer looks kind of creepy but I doubt they will make the whole movie like that so I might try it. :D

I haven't seen the movie, only read the book. I enjoyed the book, but not enough to want to see a movie about it. I was annoyed by Groundhog day, or Christmas Everyday so I feel like this would just be another one of those.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

Just so excited to see the movie. The book would be confusing in my case. I would love the movie.

I'm trying to decide if I should read the book before I watch the movie. I have heard mixed reviews for both. I want to watch the film because I am a big fan of Zoey Deutch and have loved everything I have seen her in.

Terrible, just terrible. Probably because I read the book first. The characters in the movie were not at all like I pictured them while I was reading. And not sure if it's just because of how it was portrayed, but the movie was BORING. I really enjoyed the book and flew through it, but the movie just dragged on and on and on. Also unfortunate because I love Zoey Deutch and thought she did great in Vampire Academy.
You just read my mind. Very true. For instance, Kent... The character need better casting.
