Paper Towns is particularly good at pinpointing that certain point in teenage male friendships where the guys are getting older, but they still sometimes resort to silly voices and goofy humor when the girls aren't around.

Paper Towns is too nice. And that is, coincidentally, also the problem its hero has been facing.

This is sensitive and often winning in its depiction of adolescent behavior; the characters speak openly about their vulnerabilities, which makes them sympathetic.

Paper Towns is a movie that I really liked, but I probably would have loved if I'd seen it when I was 13.

It's the rare movie that can sacrifice the clean lines of fantasy and melodrama for the messiness of ordinary life - that neither burnishes nor condemns the up-down turmoil of the teenage soul, but rather lets it be.

The worst thing about Paper Towns isn't that it's poorly made or majorly flawed; it's that it's so humble and plain and unexciting that it saps the life out of you. It even sucks the life out of its talents.
