Veronika Decides to Die Reviews

    Basically an artsy Lifetime channel movie. No wonder this sat on the shelf for so long. (Never heard of the novel) Gellar does her best with a hamfisted borderline nonexistent plot. There are some wonderful actors in this film, but you wouldn’t k ow it because they’re reduced to staring out of windows and mumbling randomness. Waste of time, not even a rental. SKIP.

    One of the best books ive read and it sadly doesn't make a good film. It was an uneven mix, trying to be arty but given a Hollywood cast. Sarah Michelle Gellar isn't convincing enough and the love story angle is a bit wet. The end of the book hit like a punch here its done as a narration. Weak

    Great example of a terrific novel very poorly adapted to the screen.

    Entertaining, slow movie. Good to see Sarah Michelle Gellar is always a treat.
