Midnight Sun is a typically manipulative and contrived teen romance that's unfortunately distinguished by its offensively inaccurate portrayal of a real-life disease.

It is a genetically modified sobfest, in which terminal illness looks like just another Instagram filter.
With modest production values throughout, "Midnight Sun" feels like four or five episodes of a pretty good drama on the WB network in 1997. In other words, something you used to get for free.
The authentic Sparks movies at least tend to be howlers, with shamelessly overcomplicated narratives and risible twists. Midnight Sun, on the other hand, is straightforward and trite.
A preposterous film so insufferably adorable and frightfully melodramatic that viewers will find themselves confused as to which reflex to stifle: The urge to howl, or the one to hurl.
Midnight Sun is cheesy and implausible and manipulative, but it did chip away at my cynicism through the sheer force of its corny and sincere heart.
In slapsticky moments, you can tell she's working overtime to spark something, anything, but nothing catches fire in this Midnight Sun.
There is great chemistry between the leads and that is what makes this film work on an emotional level.
It would be nice if movies stopped trying to make young girls aspire to be princesses.
As Bella Thorne carries this film with her two hands, 'Midnight Sun'is a harmless teen romance that doesn't hurt to watch but definitely not at a theater.
Midnight Sun might not have the most original of stories, but it has a ton of heart, charm and emotional charge to melt the coldest of hearts.
A movie about a girl who cannot be in the sunlight is more than a contrived plot, but this movie is about life, not death, and somehow it makes you feel for these characters.
Midnight Sun is ... hokey, never missing the chance to tug at the heartstrings with a mawkish tune, a tearful hug, or a scene of selfless kindness.
